Warning: this article contains a major spoiler for Solo: A Star Wars Story.
If you’ve seen Solo by now, or decided to spoil the movie for yourself, you likely know the movie features the first appearance by Darth Maul’s in live-action since his introduction to the franchise in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. While die-hard fans know the character returns in the animated series Star Wars Rebels — set almost a decade after the events of the Han Solo origin tale — leaving plenty of room to further explore the character in canon.
While Solo certainly leaves the door open for future adventures with Han and Chewie, a sequel has yet to be confirmed. However, during an in-depth discussion with Comicbook.com, Kasdan made it clear that the door for Maul to return again is still open:
“It opened it up for us, and certainly I think there’s room to go back and forth with that character and know more, because he’s a rich, rich opportunity.”
Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich as the young Han Solo along with Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca and Donald Glover as the young Lando Calrissian. The cast also includes Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Paul Bettany, and Ian Kenny. Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is now playing.
Every ‘Star Wars’ Movie Ranked From Worst To Best
Star Wars was released in 1977 and has become one of the biggest film franchises in the history of cinema. Han Solo. Luke Skywalker. Princess Leia. Darth Vader. These characters have become synonymous with pop culture around the world.
Star Wars has transcended generations but when Revenge of the Sith was released in 2005, many fans assumed that this galaxy far far away had come to a close and we wouldn’t be seeing any new films. It wasn’t until 2012 that everything changed. On October 30, 2012, Disney announced a deal to purchase Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion. Since that purchase, Disney has brought Star Wars back to the main folds of pop culture with The Force Awakens and even Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
