Solo: A Star Wars Story

In an interview for NME’s Absolute Scenes, director Ron Howard quashed any rumors about the possible development of a sequel to his 2018 Solo: A Star Wars Story. Howard stated that any buzz regarding a followup film was fan-based rather than originating from within the industry, although he left the possiblity open for the future. You can read a few highlights from Howard below and watch the full interview here.

On his current knowledge of the possibility of a Solo sequel: “The only discussion that I’m aware of about a sequel for Solo is coming from the fans at this point. I don’t think it’s a Lucasfilm priority, as I understand it.”

On if something could come of the idea at a later date: “But there’s some great characters launched, and the folks from Lucasfilm love the fans and really do listen so I would never say never – but I’m not aware of any concrete plans right now to extend the story or deal with that particular set of characters.”
