From superhero antics to people cruising through space in ramshackle spaceships, each of these franchises holds a devoted league of fans knowledgeable in almost every aspect of the story behind the movies and characters. This includes fictional languages. The harsh or soft foreign-sounding words spoken in these popular movies have languages attached to them. If you're curious, read on.
