The newest generation of Star Wars projects have been in the works in and around and have brought about a wide spread of opinions from fans, from a box office standpoint the new films have been nearly universal blockbusters.
The one exception to that trend was Solo: A Star Wars Story, a movie that wasn’t really a financial flop by any stretch but just came up significantly shorter when compared to the other films.
Having said that, there are still a lot of people that would love to see more stories from this particular corner of the galaxy far, far away, and Solo director Ron Howard thinks that such a thing is, at the very least, a real possibility.
Ron Howard recently made an appearance on the LCB Podcast and he was asked about the possibility of a follow-up film to Solo or possibly a Disney+ series using some of the characters. Such things have been rumoured previously as possibilities.
Howard, however, had no specific information about any of the aforementioned things happening, or these things even being discussed as possibilities, but the director still had some positive thoughts about the future as he says there is interest in some aspects of what was created in Solo and the support fans have shown certainly helps.
According to Howard, “No rumblings on it. This is not a spoiler, but I think there is interest in those characters. I think there’s interest in gangster world somewhere down the line. But I can assure you there is nothing being developed right now.
Either for a movie or Disney+. But one great thing is there has been a lot of affection shown for Solo in its afterlife. And so of course that keeps boding well for them to eventually turn it around.”
