Ron Howard has taken to Twitter to make a very special announcement regarding the Han Solo Star Wars spinoff movie.

Take a look at the tweet below:

For those who can’t watch the video, here’s what he had to say:

“As we wrap up production, I just want to take a moment to thank an incredibly talented cast and crew for all their hard work. And to the fans out there, I hope you’ve enjoyed the pictures that I’ve been sharing, pictures that I’ve been taking the set of…can we even say the name of the movie?”

Howard’s then given a title card from a pair of Wookie hands. He turns it around, and it reveals the title as Solo: A Star Wars Story.

“I’ll seen you next year!” Howard finishes.

We have to say, we’re not all that surprised with this. Pretty much from the get-go, Solo: A Star Wars Story was speculated to be one of the titles, along with Han Solo: A Star Wars Story. However, with an official title now out there in the aether, the whole deal certainly feels a lot more official.

It won’t win any creativity awards, but it fit. What do you think of the new title? Let us know down below!

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25, 2018.
