Today, director Ron Howard thanked the cast and crew of Han Solo as production had finally come to a close. This was indeed a crazy production after the original directors Chris Miller & Phil Lord were forcibly remove from the project mid-shoot back earlier this summer. Then, Ron Howard came on board to finish the project and ended up reshooting many of the original scenes himself.
The director went on to also reveal the official title for the untitled Han Solo film will indeed be Solo: A Star Wars Story. This title is not anywhere shocking and was expected by many fans. However, it does lead to the speculation the spin-off Obi-Wan Kenobi film which is in development may end up being titled Kenobi: A Star Wars Story:

A rumor was circling that the film may end up being pushed to December next year but with a trailer already cut and with production still, relatively kept on track this seems unlikely.
