The Han Solo movie has a fun working title

Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi

We interrupt your regularly scheduled program—”It’s The End Of The World As We Know It, And Trump Feels Fine”—to bring you some news from a galaxy far, far away. You might recall that the Young Han Solo movie is currently filming, with Alden Ehrenreich in the titular (for now) role. Donald Glover’s joined the cast as a young Lando Calrissian, who’s bound to get some kind of musical interlude, as well as Woody Harrelson in the mentor role. Most of the production is reliably shrouded in mystery, but directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have just revealed a fun tidbit—the working title for the movie.


It’s called “Star Wars: Red Cup,” you see—as in, a Solo cup? Okay, so that tweet could probably be accompanied by that pun-loving husky, but it’s still amusing. Let’s just hope that no one involved in the recent inauguration tries to take credit for the soon-to-be-replaced title, given the lame swag that accompanied the event.
