Actually, yes you will

Well, the moment all the Star Wars fans have been waiting for is here! The long named Untitled Young Han Solo Film (2018) finally has its official title. According to CNN, the next Star Wars anthology film centered on the lovable scoundrel Han Solo will simply be called Solo: A Star Wars Story.

While this is certainly exciting news to officially have a title, this writer can't help but wonder why this was not the title from day one? It seems pretty basic and to the point enough that it could have been called this a long time ago... in a galaxy far, far away. Most Star Wars fans were pretty certain that the subtitle, "A Star Wars Story," would be in the future film's title somewhere, like last December's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016). This seems to be the route that Lucasfilm is going for in naming their movies, to distinguish their standalone Star Wars films from the episodic entries (last seen as Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015)). Whether the initial first words of the title would be just Solo, Han Solo, or a different way to refer to the pilot of the Millennium Falcon altogether was left to speculation.

The Solo details

While we still have a while to wait for this new Han Solo movie, if you keep up to date on Star Wars or any upcoming blockbuster movies for that matter you'll know that Star Wars: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (2017) is unbelievably less than two months away (we were recently graced with an amazing second trailer), so there is no shortage for Star Wars here, and that will be hitting theaters on December 15, 2017.

Directed by Ron Howard (In the Heart of the Sea (2015), Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)), Solo: A Star Wars Story will star Alden Ehrenreich as the young Han Solo (Beautiful Creatures (2013)), Emilia Clarke (Me Before You (2016)), Woody Harrelson (Natural Born Killers (1994)), Paul Bettany (Firewall (2006)), Donald Glover (The Martian (2015)), Thandie Newton (Mission: Impossible II (2000)), Warwick Davis (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011)), and Clint Howard (Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (2009)), and is set to hit the jump to light speed in theaters next summer on May 25, 2018.
