‘Solo’ Will be Called ‘Han Solo: A Star Wars Story’ in Certain International Markets
The official Spanish Star Wars account on Facebook has just revealed that in Spain, the movie about the famous space smuggler will be called Han Solo: A Star Wars Story instead of Solo: A Star Wars Story as the movie is titled in the US.
This move was expected since the word “solo” has a meaning of its own, which could be confusing to some of the international markets not that familiar with the brand.
This title change was hinted a few days ago when a promo image from the movie was released via several Russian sources.
While Lucasfilm said they didn’t authorize the use of this image, it’s clear that it’s legit. We’ve seen the costumes the cast wears in it in other images shared by director Ron Howard or in images that leaked from the set.
Also, speaking about Solo, Ron Howard shared for the New Year another photo from the set with Han piloting a speeder. We’ve actually already seen a black and white version of this image, but now here it is in full color:
