'Star Wars': Young Han Solo Movie Starts Production

Co-director Chris Miller shared a photo from the set.

The photo also shows that the movie's on-set code name is "Red Cup" -- a possible homage to the popular Solo brand plastic-ware.

Two "Star Wars" films have been slated for release in the not-so-distant future. "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" hits theaters in December, while the Han Solo standalone film opens in May 2018.

Both movies are from Lucasfilm, which, like ABC News, is owned by Disney.
