While we still don't know the official title for the upcoming Han Solo Anthology(or "Hanthology", as we like to call it), or any film beyond Rogue One, but we may yet have an idea what names are being applied to them behind the scenes. In order to keep the production of recent Star Wars films secret, less conspicuous production names have been applied to the movies. The Force Awakens was codenamed "Foodles" during it's production, and we recently learned that Star Wars: Episode VIII has been using the name "Space Bear".
Now our friends at Jedi News have uncovered two new production names for future Star Wars films, one of which in particular is being applied to the Hanthology film that's coming in 2018. The new production names are as follows:
- Carbonado Industries (UK) Ltd
- PLT Productions Ltd.
Although this is just a rumor for the moment, Jedi News has proved themselves before by being the first to reveal other production names like Foodles. The Carbonado name is an obvious reference to Han Solo being frozen in Carbonite, thus they claim it is the production name that will be used for the Hanthology film, which stars Alden Ehrenreich and is directed by Chris Miller and Phil Lord. The second name, PLT Porductions, is a bit more ambiguous. Jedi News admits that while it could be applied to Star Wars: Episode IX, directed by Colin Trevorrow, it could be for a number of other films, including a non-Star Wars production, such as the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones film. We shall see how this pans out.
In the meantime, we look forward to an official confirmation(or denial) from Lucasfilm regarding this information.
