Director Ron Howard says the previously untitled “Young Han Solo” movie actually has a much shorter title, “Solo.”
The movie stars Alden Ehrenreich as a 20-something version of Harrison Ford’s infamous smuggler. Donald Glover plays his frenemy Lando Calrissian, which was originally played by Billy Dee Williams in “The Empire Strikes Back.” Actor Joonas Suotamo is taking over the role of Chewbacca from Peter Mayhew.
The movie also co-stars Thandie Newton, Emilia Clarke, and Woody Harrelson.
