Fans React To Ron Howard’s ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Movie Title

Han Solo Star Wars

Earlier today, director Ron Howard took to Twitter to reveal the official title and logo for his Star Wars Han Solo spinoff anthology film, entitled Solo: A Star Wars Story. Now, granted, it may not be the most creative or original title out there, but is it a bad title? The internet certainly seems to think so.

Star Wars fans have taken to the internet to react to Howard’s announcement, with many voicing their distaste for the simplistic title while a few pointed out that it could be worse.

You can check out a few of these reactions in the tweets below:

Finally, Star Wars Explained had a great run of alternate title suggestions, with these being some of my favorite:

I wasn’t really a big fan of the “A Star Wars Story” subtitle when it was first introduced for Rogue One, much preferring a naming convention along the lines of something like Star Wars: Rogue One or Star Wars: Solo, but with Disney and Lucasfilm removing the episode numbers from their titles, something had to be done to differentiate the saga films from the standalone ones.

Directed by Ron Howard and written by Lawrence Kasdan and son Jon Kasdan, Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, as well as Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Paul Bettany and Ian Kenny. Details on the film’s plot are being kept under wraps, but the film will chronicle the adventures of Han Solo during his youth and is said to include his first meeting with Chewbacca, the infamous Kessel run and how Han came to win the Millennium Falcon from Lando.

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25, 2018.

8 ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Off Movies We Really Want To See

Previous1 of 9

Star Wars-SagaMay the 4th be with you, everyone! Even on May the 8th! With Star Wars weekend in the rear-view mirror, it’s still a great time to kick back, get out your old glow-in-the-dark lightsaber toys and Darth Vader Halloween masks, and pop in those original trilogy DVDs. Maybe even all 8 currently-released films, if you’re up for the challenge (both mental and otherwise). Speaking of which, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just came out on Blu-ray, marking the first home release of many Star Wars spin-off movies to come.

Of these, only one future title has been confirmed – Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, to be released in May of 2018. Beyond that, we know Disney had at least two more planned, and probably more down the line. And why not? The Star Wars universe is so ripe for exploration. There are so many characters we were introduced to in the Saga movies that could easily get their own film. And it doesn’t stop there. The legacy of the Jedi and the Sith go back thousands of years, opening up virtually endless possibilities of story material.

Given this abundance of material just waiting to be tapped into, Heroic Hollywood decided to celebrate the Star Wars holiday by compiling a list of the Star Wars stand-alone movies we’d most like to see. While some of the films on this list are more likely to be developed than others, they each share one unifying factor: they’d all be freakin’ awesome!
