Just a day after director Ron Howard cleverly revealed that the name of the young Han Solo prequel movie would be Solo: A Star Wars Story, he celebrated the end of principal photography in a manner reminiscent of the fireworks display above the treetops of Endor in Return of the Jedi.

Lawrence and Jon Kasdan wrote the script, which focuses on the formative years of the young smuggler and scoundrel (Alden Ehrenreich), his gambling buddy (Donald Glover) and a big walking carpet who owes him a life debt (Joona Suotamo). Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Emilia Clarke and Pheobe Waller-Bridge also star.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is slated for release on May 25, 2018.
