‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Writer Unsure Sequel Is ‘Happening Anytime Soon’

Solo: A Star Wars Story writer Jon Kasdan has revealed that he doesn’t think the film will get a sequel “anytime soon”.

Solo: A Star Wars Story was a sour point for many Star Wars fans. For some, it was an unresolved promise that failed to live up to expectations. For others, it was a wonderful underrated chapter to the franchise. Nevertheless, both sides will agree that the film’s box office returns were disappointing. It appears that Jon Kasdan, one of the film’s writers, would agree.

Kasdan released a list of fun facts and trivia from the development of the film, and in his final post he answered whether or not Solo could have sequels:

“Will there ever be a sequel ’cause it really seems like you guys were setting one up? To be honest, I think the challenge has more to do with the foreign box office than the U.S. Personally, I think there are great Star Wars movies to be made that don’t need to cost quite so much. Hopefully that will be the trend in years to come, and maybe, just maybe, that trend will allow us, one way or another, to tell more stories with Alden [Ehrenreich], Joonas [Suotamo], Emilia [Clarke], and Donald [Glover]. With those actors and [Ron Howard], I would jump at the opportunity. Given the way Hollywood, and the culture at large, seem to run from anything labeled a disappointment, the odds seem like they’re against it happening anytime soon. But, I suppose, Han wouldn’t have it any other way.”
