Han Solo is the character's real name, Lucasfilm president says

Film producer Kathleen Kennedy has said that there may be a possibility of continuing the story of the iconic Star Wars series even after the ninth episode. Rogue One was a pretty random story to begin the standalone experiment, and it worked out well, so Lucasfilm may go back to the well of finding another original, ensemble-led story like it rather than focusing on just one familiar character like with the Han Solo film. But that didn't stop endless, feverish speculation that Iger somehow clearly meant the Han Solo movie would be about Han getting the name "Han Solo, ' and before he was 'Han Solo" he was probably named something like Clive or Herbert.

Speaking to MTV in a video released on their Facebook page, Kennedy reaffirmed that the Han Solo movie wouldn't see how Han Solo got his name but, more than likely, how the galaxy came to know about the smuggling ne'er-do-well. Warwick Davis reveals some of the things you might see on set. In it, Warwick Davis (famous for for playing Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi) teases fans with a secret "spoiler-free" set tour of the Han Solo movie. There's more to Han Solo's name, but it's not that it's not his name. The victor and a guest will score a VIP tour of the set and see costumes, props and sets before anyone else. The film is being directed by The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller and is now slated for release on May 25, 2018.

Fans can enter to win the grand prize which includes all three experiences (Han Solo set visit, a night at Skywalker Ranch and a trip to join the cast at the premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi) until May 11.
