Ron Howard took to Twitter on Tuesday to give the “Star Wars” fans some news. Production on the standalone Han Solo movie is wrapping up and it now has a title — “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

Here’s the director delivering the news:

For a movie that was given the code name “Red Cup” for three years through the different phases of it being made (referring to the famous red solo cups), this title wasn’t much of a stretch. Also, “Solo” has the double meaning of being Han’s last name and also pointing out that he’s a space smuggler who is a loner.

But now to the fun part. The internet’s reaction. It’s been swift and very much unimpressed by the title choice. Below are some examples (we’ll try to keep updating).

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” opens in theatres May 25, 2018.

Here are some of the best reactions to the “Solo” title we’ve seen so far:
