Even though Marvel President Kevin Feige’s Star Wars movie isn’t likely to release for quite some time — it is currently set to debut after both Patty Jenkins’s Star Wars: Rogue Squadron (2023) and Taika Waititi’s as-yet-untitled Star Wars flick — that hasn’t stopped fans from chomping at the bit for details about the project.

We know that Loki head writer Michael Waldron will be running point on the script for Feige’s Star Wars film, and he has shared that the project is still in its early days.

Feige himself, though, true to form — he is known for going to great lengths to keep Marvel Cinematic Universe projects under wraps — has remained almost completely mum on details about his foray into the Star Wars franchise. Until now.

Feige recently spoke to Collider about his Star Wars movie and confirmed a key (yet somewhat random) detail about the plot. The conversation went as follows:

What is the status of your Star Wars script with Michael Waldron?

Kevin Feige: In the works, in progress.

Can you at least say, is it a solo movie or is it one of these things that could be a movie and a Disney Plus thing?

Kevin Feige: It’s not about Han Solo. Han Solo is not in it, though.

It is unclear if Feige was joking after he was asked if it’s a “solo” project or if he actually thought he was being asked about Han Solo — made famous by Harrison Ford in the original trilogy and played by Alden Ehrenreich in Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) — but, nonetheless, we now have our first notable detail about Feige’s Star Wars film.

While one could read into Feige’s comment and assume his film will be set in the Star Wars timeline sometime before Han Solo’s origin story in Solo or after the Millennium Falcon pilot’s death at the hands of Kylo Ren/Ben Solo (Adam Driver) in Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens (2015), this cannot, of course, be confirmed.

It’s equally as likely that Solo just won’t be appearing and the movie will be set during an era we’ve already seen in the Star Wars universe.

For now, at least Feige has given Star Wars fans a tidbit of information to go on until production for his Star Wars movie gets officially underway.

What do you hope Feige’s Star Wars story is about?
