The "Star Wars" trend of its films making money hand over fist came to a somewhat crashing end with the release of "Solo: A Star Wars Story". Instead, the studio is focusing on completing Episode IX, which is set to begin filming sometime this summer, as well as the next trilogy of films being developed by The Last Jedi writer-director Rian Johnson.
The report further asserts that the previously rumored Obi-Wan movie was in active development, but those attached to the movie are no longer working on it.
Regardless, this is having an impact on Disney's plans to expand the Star Wars mythology with more Star Wars Story spinoffs.More news: Mexico's Marquez in 'great shape' at fifth career World Cup
"You're not entitled to politeness when your approach is rude". Indeed, while the film was fun, it spent way too much time answering questions no one was really asking, and in doing so, failed in that stated mission of relevance.
"Solo: A Star Wars Story" has grossed $192.8 million domestically so far, compared with a four-week domestic gross of $424 million for the other Stars Wars spin-off "Rogue One".
That's despite recent reports suggesting eagerly-anticipated flicks based on timeless characters like Obi-Wan Kenobi (starring Ewan McGregor) and Bobba Fett were next in-line.
This move comes just weeks after Solo: A Star Wars Story arrived in theaters. But the story of young Han Solo did receive mixed reviews, whereas Rogue One was nearly universally praised.More news: How to Watch Iran vs. Spain
At the end of the day, whether we get more trilogies or standalones, the steady march of Star Wars on the big screen isn't going to end any time soon.
Solo was the second of Disney's line of Star Wars spin-offs, following Rogue One. Obi-Wan and Boba Fett's stories are already expanded in The Clone Wars. Let us know down in the comments.
The rumored film, which would have been an anthology film focused on the legendary Jedi, and with Ewn McGregor expressing interest in reprising the role for the film, was supposedly moving foraward a year ago when Daldry was seemingly revealed as its director, despite the film not yet having been announced or even confirmed.More news: Why Didn't Kate Middleton, Prince William Attend His Cousin's Wedding?
