The standalone Han Solo Star Wars spin-off finally has its name. Thanks to Ron Howard, the director of the film, shared the announcement via a Twitter video on Tuesday. With a little Wookiee help, the director reveals that the name of the upcoming movie will be called Solo: A Star Wars Film.

Following last year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the Solo standalone film will dive into the earlier life of the infamous charismatic smuggler played by Alden Ehrenreich. Alongside him will be Atlanta star Donald Glover in the role of his duplicitous frenemy Lando Calrissian. Chewbacca will also be present, and is being portrayed by Joonas Suotamo. Hopefully we’ll get to see how the ultimate sci-fi BFF duo Chewie and Han came to be. Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and Thandie Newton are also featured among the cast.

No news on when the first trailer will drop, but hopefully soon. Solo: A Star Wars Film hits theaters May 25, 2018.
