The Young Han Solo Movie Finally Has a Name So Naturally, Twitter Made it a Meme

After what felt like forever, Star Wars fans were finally told on Tuesday what the name of the new young Han Solo standalone film would be called. Director Ron Howard took to Twitter to announce that production had finally wrapped and decided to also reveal the title of the film. While many would probably have preferred a name that would be a symbolic and meaningful addition to the franchise catalog or a hint as to what to expect for the film, they were instead treated to a name so simple that literally, anyone could have predicted it – Solo: A Star Wars Story. 

Now, if you immediately thought of a solo cup, Rolo candy, #yolo, or perhaps Jason Derulo’s hit single “Ridin’ Solo” you’re not alone. This being 2017 the comedians of the internet, better known as the people of Twitter, immediately began cracking jokes and making memes about the title.
