And there it is! The title keeps in line with the Star Wars franchise's other standalone films, e.g. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and, bizarrely, was predicted by ET's own Ash Crossan during a red carpet interview with Solo himself, Alden Ehrenreich, all the way back in November 2016.
Howard was brought on as director in June after a shakeup mid-production found Phil Lord and Chris Miller (21 Jump Street, The Lego Movie) exiting the project. The film, which stars Ehrenreich, as well as Donald Glover -- who plays Lando Calrissian -- has been in the works since 2015, and began filming at the beginning of this year.
We've got a little while longer to wait and see how it all comes together, as the film is set to premiere on May 25, 2018, following the next Star Wars proper, The Last Jedi, which hits theaters on Dec. 15.
