'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Partners With Solo Cups Because Of Course

Kelly Woo

Solo, meet Solo.

In a match made in brand marketing and pun heaven, "Solo: A Star Wars Story" is partnering with Solo cups (you know, the iconic red vessels you use at parties).

Lucasfilm announced the six brand partners for the standalone film about the young Han Solo. Aside from Solo Cups, they are Denny's Corp, Esurance, General Mills, Nissan, and Symantec Corp.

The iconic red cups likely won't make an appearance in the movie (although, you never know). But "Solo" and Solo do have a deeper connection, since "Red Cup" was the codename for the movie back when Phil Lord and Chris Miller were the directors.

Here's Miller with the clapboard for the first shot of the movie:

Lucasfilm didn't go into detail about the extent of the partnerships, but it's not hard to imagine some "Solo"-themed Solo cups. So, at this summer's barbecue, you could be playing beer pong with Chewbacca, Lando, and Han!
