Woody Harrelson has confirmed the temporary title for The Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story now being directed by Ron Howard.

Han Solo Working Title Spinoff Woody HarrelsonWoody Harrelson has revealed The Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story has a new temporary title.

Plot details are still under wraps, however, it has been confirmed that the spinoff will dial the clock back even further than Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as it chronicles the young smuggler, played by Alden Ehrenreich, from years of 18-24 in his life and will include meeting Chewbacca (Joonas Suotomo) and finding the Millennium Falcon.

Back at the start of production, former co-director Christopher Miller revealed the Star Wars spinoff was using the working title of Red Cup, with a photo of the film’s slate, however, Harrelson who plays Beckett in the film — a criminal who influences the young Solo — recently shared a photo to Instagram which revealed the actor to be wearing a crew shirt with the logo Solo printed on it.

While promoting his new film War for the Planet of the Apes on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Harrelson was grilled about the shirt with the Solo logo when he confirmed that it was indeed the film’s current temporary title telling Cobert:

“Right now, that’s the temporary name of the movie.”
