LOS ANGELES (AP) – The young Han Solo “Star Wars” spinoff film finally has a title: “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

The film also stars Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and Thandie Newtown and focuses on Han and Chewbacca before they joined the rebellion.

The film has had some well-known production turmoil. Deep into the shoot, directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller abruptly left the project and were replaced by Howard.

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” is set for a May 25, 2018, release.
