UPDATE: Ron Howard Confirms Title “Solo: A Star Wars Story” and Production Has Wrapped!

Ron Howard has taken to Twitter once again, this time to reveal the Han Solo standalone film’s title!

 

 

Check out the video below. Ron Howard not only confirms that production has wrapped on the film, but Howard has officially discarded the now infamous “Untitled Han Solo Film”, as a certain Wookiee hands Howard a card, which he turns around to reveal the title!

 

 

 

SOLO: A Star Wars Story!

 

 

 

UPDATE!

 

Here is the official logo release just posted over at StarWars.com:

 

 

 

What would a Solo film announcement be without hearing from the mighty Chewbacca?

 

 

What do you think of the title? Keep it right here as more details about the film come out, as always we will keep you posted!

 

Solo: A Star Wars Story will open in theaters May 25, 2018, just a short seven months away!

      Sticking with it would make them look stupid, though, since “anthology” doesn’t mean “side story”, it means “a collection of stories”. An anthology film would be “multiple stories in one film”.

    As for the title name, Solo. I like it. Short and to the point and evokes a lot. Kind of like Logan from the X-men. And the font is nice too. If I had one gripe, it is more of a small nitpick, it is the term Star Wars story. Why did LF ditch the term anthology?

    Was it a focus test thing? Where people found it hard to pronounce? I get LF wants to make these movies reach a global audience, but still; A Star Wars story sound so simplistic.

    But regardless of that nitpick, the title card looks good. I still will need to see a trailer, but as of now I have no interest in seeing this. Not that I like Han Solo; far from it. I just never really cared for the character. Minus ESB.

          The word “penultimate” sounds better than the word “final”, but they don’t mean the same thing. That’s kind of how words work, they can sound as cool as possible but that doesn’t make them synonyms.

            I was just curious, really. I do not see a point of even arguing something as superficial as a title. It is why I never delved into discussions over if The last Jedi meant one or two. But it also helps in this movie’s instance that I am quite indifferent to it.

            For my own reasons, as I mentioned. But hey, who knows? Maybe, I will find enjoyment out of it?

    I agree that if they are continuing the “A Star Wars Story” label for the anthology films, than short and sweet is better. I think “Han Solo” would have also worked. If it was any lengthier, it would have sounded weird along with the ASWS moniker. That being said, I don’t really like ASWS either. I didn’t like it with Rogue One and I don’t like it with Solo. Who ever says “A Star Wars Story” when talking about Rogue One? Nobody. Nevertheless, they decided to go with it. So I guess the titles for upcoming character based anthologies won’t be too hard to figure out. Kenobi: A Star Wars Story seems about right. But if I had my druthers, I would rather they had dropped ASWS and gone with something more unique. “When Han Met Chewie”, “A Day in the Life of a Space Pirate”, “Gone in 12 Parsecs”, “Corellian Nights”…Okay, I’m joking about these, but you get my point. But alas, don’t judge a movie by its title. I enjoyed the last “Star Wars Story” quite a bit.

      I mean, does anyone EVER use film subtitles in casual conversation? Like when people talk about Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, the most people say is “Raiders”. Nobody says “Indiana Jones” unless they forgot the title in the heat of the moment, or they’re describing them as a whole.

        True. I guess what I’m trying to say is that it’s weird adding that on the end to me. I think Star Wars: Rogue One would have been a better title, and people would be more likely to use the whole title in conversation. I get that it helps differentiate from the main saga films, but I just prefer that structure. How weird would “Raiders of the Lost Ark: An Indiana Jones Story” be? Lol.

        Actually, the movie was just called “Raiders of the Lost Ark”. It was never called “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark” during the 1980’s, either theatrically or on home video. The iconic subtitle “Indiana Jones and the…” was not introduced until Temple of Doom was aanounced in 1984. That being said, as an ’80’s kid, I always thought the movie should be called “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark”, so as to better fit in with the rest of the series, and also because, as awkward as the extended title admittedly is, it does fit in with the whole tribute to 1930’s and ’40’s action serials that was the initial idea behind these films in the first place…

      Thing is ASWS is a simple sub-title to label it as not part of the Saga. No one is ever going to refer to it, but it allows even casual fans to understand its not an Episode film.

    I like the logo. It’s retro, very ’70s.

    “Han Solo” would have worked better IMHO.

    Unsurprising title, but serviceable. I get that they want to stick with “a star wars story” at the end, but it feels like X-Men Origins: Han Solo. In any case this was always going to be the hardest SW film to sell to me since it feels the least needed, but I’m sure I will see it and if Rogue One taught me anything its not to doubt lucasfilm’s ability to turn an uncertain mess into a competent and enjoyable film. Fingers crossed there isn’t TOO much slapstick humor

    I think KENOBI is a perfect title for this movie.

    Wait, what ?

    Too early ? Sh*t.

    I like this title. Short and efficient.

    UNORIGINAL TITLE. ITS HIS LAST NAME. DISNEY BROKE STAR WARS AGAIN. WTF IS GOING ON? WHY DON’T THEY JUST LISTEN TO THE COMMENTORS ON THIS FORUM WHO KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT HOW MARKETING AND FILM MAKING SHOULD BE DONE.

    Really scratching my head regarding the criticism of this movie’s title. The general trend is that an origins movie has the name of the central character in the title.

    Why should a SW movie be any different?

    Sequel titles should be easy – “Duo,” “Trio,” “Quatro,” “Cinco,”…. Sorry, couldn’t resist. ;p

      Slight modification: Solo, Duo, Trio, Quartet, Quintet — although there’s already a film called Quintet starring Paul Newman. It’s one of the few post-MASH Robert Altman movies I haven’t seen, apparently science fiction and not very good.

        Yes! I was trying to think of better context for the word “solo.” You nailed it with the musical slant. Although, I was trying to keep it words that ended with “o.”

    So the solo Solo movie is titled Solo.

    I wish I hadn’t seen Baby Driver… I can’t get that kid out of my head for Han now. I’ve seen the actor we did end up with and didn’t like him as much. Hopefully it all pans out.

    I’d have loved “Kessel Run: a Star Wars story”

    • October 18, 2017 at 2:54 pm
      Permalink

      That would have been a cool title, but we don’t exactly know what it is about yet. If it includes the Kessel Run, then I would say it would be a good name. I’m fine with the title. Only after the movie will I be able to determine if it is fitting. Right now, it is simple so I’ll give it that.

        You think that was part of the agreement? Because they could have just thrown away another one of his ideas. Wouldn’t be the first time.

          That shows a severe lack of understanding of the entire process. It wasn’t part of the agreement, but one he had mind, that (I think?) already had Kasdan attached to write.

          I presume you are referring to his treatment of Episode VII, which was used, but changed during development, even as he was working on it with them. That is how it works.

            You’re right, I don’t really know much about licensing rights or contract negotiations in the film industry, But I was assuming that if he was really looking forward to having the story of Han Solo be told, and if what you say about him wanting Kasdan attached to the project is true, I can see how making this movie would have been a priority in the direction he would like to see the franchise go, as well as it be something he asked Disney to make. It’s not like I think he held them at gunpoint and said “Sign it with Solo or go sleep with the Gungans.” And yes I was referring to the entire outline he had for the ST in general. Wiped out like the senate. But yes I also understand that they grabbed elements of it such as a young female lead and so on.

            Right, perhaps it was part of the agreement, but it didn’t seem like it from what I heard. More like “Here’s what we already started work on” and Han Solo is popular so why not?

            I believe (not sure) Pablo said the outline was just for Episode VII. And it changed over time, even through Lucas. But yeah, I hear ya

        My italian is a little rusty. I think she says “ma il cafè è veramente perfetto solo con Giotto” in the ad.

          My bad: I stopped watching tv (and pretty much anything containing ads) years ago, so I didn’t realize where did it came from 😉 Your italian seems to be perfectly good, though! Btw, great moniker: enjoy your happy little coffee 🙂

    As much as I wasn’t interested in a Solo film, I will still watch it. Who knows, it may end up being an awesome film. Maybe even a classic. We all know the story of A New Hope. How it faced every problem you can think of. And look how that film turned out.

    No clue if the movie will be good. But this title, along with force awakens and last jedi is terrible. Where are the adventure titles?? The prequels are awful. But I always thought the titles were the best thing about them. MENACE!!! ATTACK!!! REVENGE!!! HOPE!! (Uh…well…yawn) EMPIRE STRIKES!! RETURN!! (..uh..well..ok). AWAKENS!! (yawn..stretch…didn’t it already awaken in the last movie with Luke and leia??). LAST JEDI! (But…you just said the Jedi returned one movie ago!!) SOLO!!! (Huh? not even HAN SOLO AND THE PIRATES OF KESSEL!!! ??)
