Disney, Lucasfilm Put Future Star Wars Spinoff Film Plans On Hold


It may be a while before we see any more movies like Solo: A Star Wars Story out of Lucasfilm.

The outlet's sources claim that the Obi-Wan Kenobi film was in active development, but now those who were involved are no longer working on the project. The company is reportedly contemplating the next trilogy to capture the hearts of Star Wars fans, though whether this will continue that generational epic is unknown. Going off of a report from a Collider source, there is word that the anthology "Star Wars Stories" will be taking a pause so that Disney can properly plan out Episode IX while also thinking about what the next trilogy of Star Wars movies will be about.

Logan director James Mangold was also reportedly set to helm a Boba Fett movie, but this report doesn't indicate what will happen to the solo movie focused on the bounty hunter, though it seems safe to say it won't go into production. For comparison's sake, Rogue One opened to $155 million and had grossed $424 million domestic by Week 4. Solo grossed only $85 million in its opening domestic box office weekend, going on to earn a domestic total of $192.8m so far, four weeks into its release. And while "Rogue One" managed to be a box-office success, Tony Gilroy was brought in for extensive reshoots.

DISNEYStar Wars Solo flop puts Obi-Wan film on hold? But Lucasfilm's main focus at the moment is planning the next trilogy after the Abrams-directed Star Wars 9, which is expected to conclude the story of Rey (Daisy Ridley) that began with The Force Awakens. There has been a lot of speculation about why Solo is underperforming at the box office, with reasons ranging from backlash against Star Wars: The Last Jedi to bad timing in an already packed May.
