Star Wars: Red Cup Begins Filming


Despite some people trying to claim that the untitled Han Solo movie won’t begin filming until March, one of its directors confirmed otherwise today.

Chris Miller Tweeted the above photo today confirming that the movie is going into production now. That lines up with previous reports that it will begin filming in February, and his image also confirms the code name for the movie. Red Cup is in reference to the Red Solo Cup, which is what inspired George Lucas to name Han Solo.

I don’t think many fans would mind if they kept Red Cup as the official title, but it’ll obviously be something different. Star Wars Celebration is coming up in April and there is usually a panel on the last day for the spinoffs. Perhaps we’ll learn the official title for the Han Solo movie there?
