The Internet Reacts To Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The Internet Reacts To Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The seventh Star Wars film officially has a name now — and the internet has a surprising amount to say about a subtitle.

Mostly, there are a lot of jokes out there. It’s hard not to poke some fun at the title, which manages to be both grandiose and generic. If nothing else, “The Force Awakens” opens up the door for tons of puns about the Force being asleep. Sure, there is tons of hype about the new movie…along with cynicism about Star Wars as a money-making machine. But regardless of how you feel about the upcoming movie, one thing is clear: everyone is talking about it.

Here’s some of what the internet had to say about The Force Awakens.

What about you, how did you react to the new name?


  • I think it’s a good indication of where the trilogy is going to go. As of the movies, we have what? 1 known force user left alive, so the natural order of things is that a whole bunch more force users are going to start popping up everywhere; thus awakening.

    • yeah the title makes sense.
      Hopefully they don’t overdo it though. The prequels sort of ruined it by making everyone a jedi.
      The idea of jedi being rare and most people not really believing the force exists is so much cooler.

  • The subtitles in all the star wars films have been just as basic but do the job of describing what the basic premise of the film is so I don’t think the title really matters until after we’ve seen it. The Phantom menace Subtitle is easily the worst for describing the film (or maybe it was the film that made it worse?)and I can’t remember a big backlash when that was announced. I wonder how many of the people complaining grew up with the latest trilogy as their first star wars memories. The film could be called Star Wars: A Shit Film That Will Ruin Your Life and I’d still go see it though. It’s freaking star wars!

  • Screw that guy for trying to get laughs off a Mel Brooks joke. Make up your own damn joke!

  • STAR WARS : The force awakens to future combat of Titans falling to combat the rising revengence of its phantom pain in realising its destiny lies with its crew and their dark souls but then bravely defaults back to among the sleep………pt1 !

  • I thought my comment over on Gizmodo was worth a run…
