It’s been a year since Disney released Solo: A Star Wars Story, which failed to spark the interest from the general public in the same way as previous movies, pulling in just more $400 million at the box office.
But this week, the hashtag #MakeSolo2Happen started trending on Twitter as a number of Star Wars fan outlets including Star Wars News Net and its Resistance Broadcast podcast started pushing Disney to continue the story of a young Han Solo, either as a sequel or a new series for Disney+.
Disney currently have two Star Wars series in development for the new streaming service, The Mandalorian, which is coming to Disney+ on November 12th and one is a prequel to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which will carry on the adventures of Captain Cassian Andor and K2SO.
There is also a third untitled series in development, which is leading to much speculation, such as a series based on the bounty hunter Boba Fett, Obi-Wan Kenobi or even the Knights of the Old Republic.
While Solo: A Star Wars Story didn’t do as well at the box office compared to previous releases, it was still a fun movie, which I personally enjoyed. And a short run series could continue the story of additional characters such as Qira, Darth Maul and the group of rebels, Enfys Nest.
Even the movies director, Ron Howard got in on the action, who is also working on a new Disney+ series with Lucasfilm based on Willow.
And Joonas Suotamo, the actor who played Chewbacca in the movie was also getting involved:
Many of the talented people who worked on the movie have also joined in on the action to promote that there is interest in seeing the adventures continued. Hopefully the people in the boardrooms at Disney have seen the outcry of love for a series on Disney+ and set the wheels in motion.
