Everything we know so far about the Han Solo movie

After Star Wars: Episode VIII in 2017, we’re due for a “standalone” Han Solo movie featuring the Millennium Falcon captain as a young man, along with his faithful Wookiee companion Chewbacca and other friends as they begin their lives as scoundrels in the shadows of the Empire.

The targeted release date is May 25, 2018 (as of June 22, 2017).

Presumably, this film will be known as Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (in the vein of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) — but that’s not official yet, of course. Stay tuned! Working or informal titles have included “Untitled Star Wars Project Number 2” and “Red Cup.”
