Star Wars Story Spin-Off Movies Reportedly On Hold at Lucasfilm

Did you enjoy "Solo: A Star Wars Story"?

When considering why Solo did so poorly compared to Disney's other Star Wars movies, many theories have been floated, from Solo's release coming too soon after The Last Jedi to fans who didn't like The Last Jedi turning Disney and sitting out of future installments.

For now, the only Star Wars film confirmed with a release date is the upcoming Episode IX, which will debut December 20, 2019. This includes the previously rumored Obi-Wan Kenobi and Boba Fett films, which would've focused on the characters' lives before "A New Hope", the sources said.

Directed by Ron Howard from a script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke as Qi'ra and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca.

Though still showing around the world, Solo has made $343 million so far, from a reported $275 million production budget, meaning a likely loss once huge marketing budgets have been taken into consideration.

What do you think about LucasFilm putting the "A Star Wars Story" series on hold?

1 killed, 2 injured in shoot out at Walmart in Washington
Before attempting the carjackings, Tumwater Police said Day went into the Walmart and fired at a locked ammunition display case. However, thanks to an armed civilian's quick thinking, the suspect was shot before anyone else could be injured or killed.

There is still plenty of big-screen Star Wars on the way, including the aforementioned trilogy from Rian Johnson as well as a series of films being developed by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. But the story of young Han Solo did receive mixed reviews, whereas Rogue One was nearly universally praised.

Are we suffering from Star Wars fatigue?

More as we hear it.

The sheer scale of the Star Wars universe has led to countless rumors about which characters and events could get their own film, though recently the most credible reports have emerged from The Hollywood Reporter.

Of the eight Star Wars films released to date, it ranks eighth on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes with 71 per cent, ahead of only Attack Of The Clones and the much-derided Phantom Menace.
