The official title of the upcoming Han Solo movie has been revealed.

  • "Solo: A Star Wars Story"
  • Title revealed on social media
  • "Solo" hits theaters May 25, 2018

On Tuesday, director Ron Howard shared the title of the spinoff as “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

The video was posted on social media to mark the movie’s final day of production.

Set before the events of the original “Star Wars” trilogy, “Solo” tells the story of a young Han Solo (played by Alden Ehrenreich), the infamous smuggler. Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson and Thandie Newton also star.

Howard took over directing duties after directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord (“The Lego Movie”) were fired halfway through production amid creative disputes with Lucasfilm.

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” opens in theaters May 25, 2018.
