SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Reportedly Gets Name Change For Release In China
The upcoming film Solo: A Star Wars Story will reportedly be receiving a name change for it's release in China in a bid to save it from the same fate as Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
With the Star Wars brand not having the impact in China that it does in other parts of the world and in an effort to distance the new movie from the recent poor performance of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, China will now call the upcoming movie Ranger Solo and remove Star Wars from the title completely. The hope is Chinese movie-goers will go see the movie not knowing it is a Star Wars film.
Whether this tactic will work remains to be seen. Solo: A Star Wars Story is scheduled for release on May 25th in the US, with the Chinese release coming slightly later.
