With a typographical styling reminiscent of the 1980's branding for The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi American director, former star of Happy Days and father to Jurassic World's Bryce Ballas Howard, Ron Howard has revealed the official name for the Star Wars spin-off movie featuring Han Solo which also wrapped up filming today, four months after it was scheduled to with former directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
Solo: A Star Wars Story may not be the most imaginative of names, but then again neither was Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and that didn't harm the movies critical and commercial success, helped in no small part to the movies closing moments featuring Darth Vader.
With filming complete, hopefully, director Howard and Lucasfilm can edit together a movie that continues Star Wars return to quality following the sub-par CGI infested quality of the prequel trilogy.
