Way way back in July 2013 we brought you one of the very first pieces of information from the set of The Force Awakens (when it didn’t even have a name) when we brought you word that the film was being made under the code name Foodles Productions.

Then in September of 2014 we brought you the news that Epsiode VIII would use the code name Space Bear Industries, whilst Rogue One took the name Lunak Heavy Industries.

Now we can reveal that the Phil Lord and Christopher Miller fronted Young Han Solo movie will use the code name Stannum 50 Labs.

What does that name mean?  Well atomic number 50 is the metal Stannum, more commonly referred to as Tin. 

Could we be seeing either C-3PO or Boba Fett (the two tin men of Star Wars movies) play a prominant part? 

Maybe.

However the reality is that the name is probably an in-joke to those making the movie, unless someone has worked out the connection between the movies and Foodles, Space Bear and Lunak…
