Really?  Okay.  Netflix threw a boatload of money at these guys, and I suspect that between that and the GoT final season reviews it wasn't a difficult decision for these guys and Lucasfilm to party company. 

So what's next?

I'm still excited by the news that Kevin Feige is developing a Star Wars project.  And combine that with the Russo Brothers having "dropped by" Lucasfilm to appear on The Star Wars Show, I think that something really positive could be in the works between them.

I guess I'm not surprised that the hundreds of millions from Netflix they got lead to this, but its a bummer because it will just be more fodder for the "Disney Star Wars is a train wreck" folks.  Stuff like this happens all the time in Hollywood but for some reason when it happens in Star Wars it's somehow Mickey Mouse or Kathleen Kennedy's fault.   ::)

So what's next?

I'd love for this to re-open the idea of doing a second Solo film with Han and Chewie working for Jabba, running into Boba Fett for the first time, etc.  So much potential there for OT Imperial run-ins and what not.

I think there's genuine momentum and optimism for a sequel to "Solo".  The podcast associated with Star Wars News Net has gained some traction with their #makesolo2happen movement.  And I agree, it seems to be fertile ground for some fun storytelling.

We can hope. Lets add Greedo in the mix too.

RE:  Solo - It's astounding that a movie which had such challenges and still made $400 million is regarded as a failure.

I still think Solo would be better off continued as Disney+ series. I enjoyed the film, but the whole time I was watching it i couldn't help but think it has so much more potential as an episodic tv show.

This. Agree 100%. I really, really liked Solo and would love to see it continue either as a Disney+ show or movie. It really seems like it might be a fresh start after Rise of Skywalker, at least movie wise, with this latest cancelled movie originally scheduled for 2022. So, we may have a wait for big screen Star Wars, which is maybe for the best? But yes, more Solo please.

Iím with Jeff Iím hoping this cracks the door open a little more for a Solo2 since that film feels so unfinished with how it ended.  I loved Solo, and would gladly love to see more.  I was skeptical at someone besides Ford doing it, but they really did a good job.

Judging from the way the final GoT season was received, and their attitude towards fans in general, we may have dodged a bullet here.

Either sequel movie or continue the story on Disney+, as long as they can get all the actors back, I'm cool either way.
This is the way.
