Star Wars Story spin-offs on hold

Not even Darth Maul could prevent the Star Wars Solo flop

"Instead", Collider continues, Lucasfilm will opt to "focus their attention on Star Wars: Episode IX and what the next trilogy of Star Wars films will be after that film".

Disney's second anthology film within the Star Wars universe, Solo is an origin story for everyone's favorite intergalactic smuggler. Rian Johnson's new trilogy is still being worked on, as well as a series of Star Wars films from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (GFame of Thrones). The next two entries were rumored to be an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie directed by Stephen Daldry (The Reader, The Hours) and a Boba Fett movie written and directed by James Mangold (Logan, 3:10 to Yuma).

It's been reported that Lucasfilm is putting all of its Star Wars standalone films on hold in the wake of Solo: A Star Wars Story's less than stellar performance.

It's hard to know precisely what's going on behind the scenes and it may be that the abject failure - commercially, speaking - of "Solo" has everyone anxious for the future of "Star Wars" as a whole.

Solo ultimately went on to gross far lower than fellow spin-off Rogue One, and is set to be the first Star Wars film since the Disney takeover to make a loss.

Rashford praises England's 2-goal captain Kane
It's fair to say that, unlike the majority of his England teammates, the softly-spoken Maguire hasn't played in the really big games, domestically or in Europe.

Episode 9 was nudged back from May 2019 to December 2019, it didn't seem too much of a stretch for the same to happen with Solo - but the release date did not budge.

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.

The franchise's other standalone movies have also experienced production trouble.

Not only did Solo: A Star Wars Story divide audiences, but it bombed at the box-office. Were you interested in seeing more Anthology movies? Plus, there's a great reveal late on which we won't spoil, in case you somehow don't know about it yet. Just this week, a group of fans announced in earnest that they are trying to raise money to remake The Last Jedi, which they felt was unbecoming of a "true" Star Wars film.
