Well then, that didn’t take very long.
The “Star Wars” franchise has once again taken over the world as spin-offs and sequels are coming out left and right to much fan excitement. One thing that hasn’t excited the fans very much? The title of the new Han Solo film.
Director Ron Howard recently announced what the new title of the film will be, and let’s just say that it isn’t as groundbreaking as Howard sets it up to be. Have a listen.

Well, even if this movie was called “A Bunch Of People With Lightsabers” it would still make a ton of cash.
