While the upcoming standalone young Han Solo film has seen its fair share of behind-the-scenes drama, there (understandably) hasn’t been a whole lot of information regarding the actual movie itself. Star Wars fans know that the second of Disney’s non-episodic franchise entries will focus on the scruffy-looking nerf herder of a smuggler’s early days… and that’s about it. Even the film’s official name has remained a mystery, but if a recently leaked photo proves true, then audiences now at least know what to call the upcoming standalone.

In what appears to be a leaked trade publication highlighting some of the film’s LEGO toy line, Han Solo: A Star Wars Story is shown with a large “Confidential” stamp plastered across it. Given that filming is wrapping up with an eye on a release date only a few months after this year’s The Last Jedi, it’s a pretty good bet that this will be the actual title for the standalone. It’s not necessarily a surprising choice, but at least audiences will know exactly what they’ll be going to see in theaters.
Based on a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, the film stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, in addition to Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Woody Harrelson, and is scheduled to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
