News broke today that the Han Solo film has its release date locked in now – May 25th 2018. Also confirmed today was the official title “Solo: A Star Wars Story”. Rogue One officially had ‘A Star Wars Story’ in its title also before the masses just cut that out for ease and referred to it as Rogue One for short so I can imagine we will all do the same again for Solo (deliberately starting it from now….)
Ron Howard posted a short video on twitter confirming the news.
Having paid little attention to the film until now I have just had a quick look on IMDB and found, to my surprise, the casting includes Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Paul Bettany and Thandie Newton alongside our title star – Alden Ehrenreich. Impressive cast indeed.
Now all they need to do is get that Vader solo movie out and I will die a happy man.. those glorious last few minutes of Rogue One teased how excellent it could be…
