It may be a while before we see any more movies like Solo: A Star Wars Story out of Lucasfilm. Sources with knowledge of the situation tell Collider that Lucasfilm has decided to put plans for more A Star Wars Story spinoff movies on hold, instead opting to focus their attention on Star Wars: Episode IX and what the next trilogy of Star Wars films will be after that film. Sources tell us that the previously rumored Obi-Wan movie was in active development, but those who were working on the film are no longer involved. It was recently reported that Logan filmmaker James Mangold was in early talks to write and direct the Boba Fett film, but that was before Solo’s release.
Massive exclusive for the gang at Collider.
Certainly adds fuel to the anti-Disney Star Wars fire which formed after The Force Awakens and burned ever so brightly after The Last Jedi.
Honestly, I think that the difficulties heading to the screen of Rogue One and Solo – even if the final products were quite good – have lead to a need to step back for Lucasfilm and a re-evauluation of a “Star Wars Universe”.
