Movie studios tend to be strangely cagey about the titles of their upcoming movies. Oftentimes, us fans find ourselves waiting pretty deep into a film’s productions — sometimes even through some of post-production — 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 they’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 we’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 title…and it’s not that surprising.


What is the title? If we’re to believe theshirts, it could be Solo: A Star Wars Story. The art on the T-shirt also has the “L” written out using the scoundrel’s trademark blaster. Admittedly, it’s not the most creative title, but it’s quite fitting, given what the story is.

Of course, it’s very possible that Solo: A Star Wars Story WON’T be the title for the film. Studios are well known for using all sorts of temporary titles interchangeably until they’re able to come up with a more permanent title. Nonetheless, we can’t imagine they’d venture too far from this approach. Given the design of the anthology films’ logos, their titles likely look much better if limited to only a few words, tops.

What do you think of this potential title? Do you think it’s legit? Let us know your thoughts down below!
