New Delhi [India], Oct. 18 (ANI): 'Star Wars' fans, Rejoice! The Young 'Han Solo' movie officially has a title now.

The movie will be called 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'.

The director of the movie, Ron Howard, revealed the title on his official Twitter account.

Throughout its production, the untitled movie was just known as 'Young Han Solo'.

The movie stars Alden Ehrenreich as a 20-something version of Harrison Ford's infamous smuggler, Donald Glover in the role of his duplicitous frenemy Lando Calrissian and Joonas Suotamo taking over Chewbacca from Peter Mayhew.

Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and Thandie Newton are also among the cast.

'Solo' is Lucasfilm's second 'Star Wars' stand-alone movie, following last year's 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'.

Howard took the director's chair in June after filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller were let go due to creative differences over style and tone between the duo and Lawrence Kasdan, the veteran screenwriter who penned the script with his son Jon Kasdan.

'Solo: A Star Wars Story' hits theaters May 25, 2018. (ANI)
