On Anniversary of Solo Fans Now Hoping for Solo 2 Film

It’s been two years since Solo: A Star Wars Story was released, receiving a disappointing response. That has not stopped fans from calling for a sequel.

Solo starred Alden Ehreneich as Han Solo, alongside Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, and Donald Glover. It became the first Star Wars film to be a commercial flop. Audiences were hesitant to watch it in theaters.

The film grossed $393 million, with a budget approximately $275-300 million. Solo was plagued with problems during production. The film managed to switch directors mid-production and going over budget. Despite all of that, on the second anniversary of the movie, fans are taking to social media letting Lucasfilm and Disney that they want more from the young Han Solo.

Some have even begun putting together ideas of where a sequel could go. Many have taken interest in what happened to Clarke’s character Qi’ra. Others have turned to using #MakeSolo2Happen on Twitter.

When Ehrenreich signed on to the project during, it was reported that he was contracted for two additional films. Clarke also signed on for future installments, but due to the commercial response it appears unlikely we’ll get Solo 2. Co-writer Jon Kasdan recently indicated that no one is “pursuing a Solo sequel at the moment,” because he believes a feature-length follow-up would be “a tough sell.”
