Movie studios tend to be strangely cagey about the titles of their upcoming movies. Oftentimes, us fans find ourselves waiting pretty deep into a filmâ€™s productions â€” sometimes even through some of post-production â€” before finally getting a title reveal for a film set to hit theaters in a few short months. Perhaps studios are worried that fans will be able to infer all sorts of details from the title, or maybe theyâ€™re just trying to find a way to preserve the hype and spread it out over as long a period as possible.
Case in point: the untitled Han Solo film. This is a Star Wars movie weâ€™ve known about for quite some time. Yet despite knowing about it, we have yet to have an official title. However, thanks to some photos of a batch of crew shirts, we may very well know the titleâ€¦and itâ€™s not that surprising.
What is the title? If weâ€™re to believe theshirts, it could be Solo: A Star Wars Story. The art on the T-shirt also has the â€œLâ€ written out using the scoundrelâ€™s trademark blaster. Admittedly, itâ€™s not the most creative title, but itâ€™s quite fitting, given what the story is.
Of course, itâ€™s very possible that Solo: A Star Wars Story WONâ€™T be the title for the film. Studios are well known for using all sorts of temporary titles interchangeably until theyâ€™re able to come up with a more permanent title. Nonetheless, we canâ€™t imagine theyâ€™d venture too far from this approach. Given the design of the anthology filmsâ€™ logos, their titles likely look much better if limited to only a few words, tops.
