Leave it to 21 Jump Street and The LEGO Movie directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, to announce the Han Solo spinoff movie’s first day of production with a pun.

Not only are the directors alluding to George Lucas’ often maligned retcon – the confrontation between Han and Greedo in Stars Wars: A New Hope – but the working title for the next Star Wars Story is Red Cup (as in the ubiquitous plastic “Solo” cups you often find at parties). These things definitely give you an idea of the tone Lord and Miller are going for in this film.
Star Wars: Red Cup (still-untitled Han Solo film) is set to hit theaters on May 25, 2018.
