Solo Director Optimistic About Sequel

Director Ron Howard has shared his thoughts regarding the chances of a sequel to Solo: A Star Wars Story. While the spin-off suffered some production difficulties and a lukewarm box office result, there’s been a positive fan campaign to #MakeSolo2Happen – and we’re sure those campaigners will be pleased with what Howard had to say about its chances.

Speaking to the Lights, Camera, Barstool podcast, and reported by Star Wars News, Howard was clear that there are no current plans for a sequel or a Disney Plus project. However, the director also said: “I think there is interest in those characters. I think there’s interest in [the] gangster world… somewhere down the line.”

Alden Ehrenreich is Han Solo and Joonas Suotamo is Chewbacca in SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY.

He added: “One great thing is that there’s been a lot of affection shown for Solo kind of in its afterlife, and so of course that keeps boding well for them to eventually turn it around.”

Solo: A Star Wars Story is in my opinion the most underrated of the Disney era Star Wars movies. The movie is “A flawed yet fun and fast-paced space adventure, Solo: A Star Wars Story should satisfy newcomers to the saga as well as longtime fans who check their expectations at the theater door.” The movie did leave some loose ends and a sequel is need to tie them all up. The story and mannerisms portrayed by  all the actors involved was the perfect compliment to a movie that showed a gritty crime ridden side of  the Star Wars universe.

Screenwriter Jonathan Kasden has talked about the #MakeSolo2Happen campaign on Twitter before and hinted at a possible storyline for a sequel with a war between Darth Maul’s Crimson Dawn, the Pykes, and the Hutts.


Ron Howard also shared the original Han Solo’s reaction to his movie. “Harrison Ford liked Solo very much and was very supportive when he saw it, and was so gracious and complimentary to Alden Ehrenreich,” Howard said.

If the Twitter-verse was able to set things in Motion for a Snyder cut of the Justice League then the #MakeSolo2Happen shold have no problem taking
