‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Writer Casts Doubt On Chances For A Sequel

Solo: A Star Wars Story co-writer Jon Kasdan cast doubt on the chances of seeing a sequel to the standalone film.

In May 2018, Disney and Lucasfilm continued the standalone Star Wars film series with the release of Solo. Although it set up the possibility of further adventures with Alden Ehrenreich’s young Han Solo, the film’s poor performance at the box office seemingly killed any chances of seeing a sequel.

Of course, Solo received generally favorable reviews and has its fair share of supporters who would love to see a sequel to the Star Wars story. However, co-writer Jon Kasdan recently revealed that he doesn’t believe anyone is pursuing a Solo sequel at this time and that such a project would a “tough sell”:

“Don’t think anyone’s pursuing a Solo sequel at the moment @KenobiJj. I think a feature, at this point, would be a tough sell & the D+ Star Wars slate is really…pretty packed, all shows I’m lookin forward to. My work on Indy is long over but I’m excited there’s forward movement!”

Are you disappointed to hear we may never get a Solo sequel or were you never interested in seeing one? Let us know your thoughts on the matter in the comments section below.

Here is the official synopsis for Solo:

Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.

Directed by Ron Howard from a script written by Lawrence Kasdan and son Jon Kasdan, the film stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Paul Bettany and Ian Kenny.
