Star Wars fans push for Solo 2 a year after its box

first_img Disney Star Wars Director Ron Howard, who took over after the original directors left, had already noticed how Solo was catching on after its digital release in September. He tweeted about how the movie’s Rotten Tomatoes audience score was creeping higher. All the Star Wars movies, from the cheesy to great, ranked Solo wasn’t a box-office hero but it still earned a lot of fan love. Walt Disney Pictures/Lucasfilm Solo: A Star Wars Story arrived in May 2018 and quickly became the lowest-grossing Star Wars film in recent memory. But sometimes bummers turn into runners. A year later, Star Wars fans are rallying for a sequel to young Han Solo’s story. Box Office Mojo shows Solo pulled in under $400 million worldwide. Compare that with The Last Jedi in 2017, which banked over $1.3 billion. It’s no wonder Disney didn’t rush in with sequel plans. Some fans attributed the poor showing to the marketing campaign or fan anger over the events of The Last Jedi. As it turns out, Solo was a fun romp of a film with engaging performances from Alden Ehrenreich in the lead role, Emilia Clarke as Qi’ra and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian.The hashtag #MakeSolo2Happen hit the trending charts on Twitter on Thursday with a push from Star Wars News Net and its Resistance Broadcast podcast. TV and Movies Star Wars fans were ready to get on board, tweeting their support for a movie sequel or a streaming series on Disney Plus. This casting was too perfect to be a one and done right? #MakeSolo2Happen @RBatSWNN— Craig (@xwingxing) May 23, 2019 Make it happen @Disney #MakeSolo2Happen— Aaron Nagler (@AaronNagler) May 23, 2019 3 as more people are catching up with #SoloAStarWarsStory I notice the #Rottentomatoes audience score is creeping higher! thanks for rating it!— Ron Howard (@RealRonHoward) September 18, 2018 I 💗 Solo: A Star Wars Story. As someone who grew up with the original trilogy, I always liked Han Solo, but this film, and Alden Erenreich’s performance, made me love him. And don’t get me started on Qi’ra. Her story NEEDS to be told.#MakeSolo2Happen— Jeremy Kulow (@jeremyjkulow) May 23, 2019 Share your voice Disney has carved out an extensive road map for future Star Wars movie releases, but Solo 2 doesn’t appear to be on the radar.
