‘Solo’ is one of the lesser-known films from ‘Star Wars’
Maybe it was because of its location right after the controversy The Last Jedi. Or maybe people felt a tiny bit Star Wars tired. But whatever it is, Solo did not work very well.
It was the first film in the franchise that was considered a “flop”. According to Vanity Fair, the film lost 65% of box office revenue in the week following its opening. There wasn’t a ton of fanfare about it, and it’s sort of forgotten Star Wars film.
The film focused on a young Han Solo and showed how he got into contraband, the story behind the Millennium Falcon and his friendship with Lando Calrissian. It also showed his close connection to Qi’ra, who ended up turning against him and working with Maul and Crimson Dawn.
Alden Ehrenreich is not totally opposed to making another film as Han Solo
While Solo did not work very well, there was still talk of a sequel. It was reported in 2018 that Ehrenreich was registered for more films. Was he an accomplice in the film’s performance? It’s unclear. But Ehrenreich is not opposed to more.
“It depends on what it is … how it is done,” he told Esquire on July 14 about resuming the role of Han Solo. “It depends if it seems innate in history. ”
And when it came to knowing if he had heard of a sequel, he said he knew nothing.
“I mean, you know, I think our movie was sort of the last one in the Star Wars era of the conventional era. ”
However, he told the publication that there were pieces he had heard about the galaxy from afar.
“I heard so many things, but nothing concrete. “
A sequel is not a very popular idea for creators
Even if contracts may still be in force for certain players or ideas may circulate, the prospect Solo the sequel did not attract those who worked on the film after its release.
In September 2018, co-writer Jonathan Kasdan spoke of the low chances of a sequel to the film Han Solo. Comicbook.com reported that it tweeted several things about the film, including a mention of the potential (or lack thereof) of a sequel.
“To be honest, I think the challenge has more to do with the foreign box office than the United States,” he wrote. “Personally, I think there are great Star Wars movies to make that don’t have to cost that much. I hope that this will be the trend in the years to come, and maybe, maybe, that this trend will allow us, in one way or another, to tell more stories with Alden [Ehrenreich], Jonah [Suotamo], Emilia [Clarke]et Donald [Glover]. »
So things are really up in the air on this one. But if Disney and Lucasfilm look at what works for the fans, they will be more oriented The Mandalorian and Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
