So I’m sure you’ve heard the rumors by now the Lucasfilms has decided to put any future STAR WARS spin-off movies on-hold. Supposedly due to the lackluster box-office for SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY.
Now I can’t stress enough that this is currently only a rumor, with sources citing the usual generic, “…with knowledge of the situation…”.
But if the rumors are true? And SOLO is the reason? Well, don’t make shit movies.
Don’t get me wrong, SOLO was fun, but overall I was pretty bored. I wasn’t invested or engaged with the story or any of the characters. There were no surprises in the movie, everything I expected to see, I saw. Nothing new.
And as far as what I expected to see? It was just too much for one movie. Honestly, I would offer there was probably plot lines in SOLO that could’ve been spun into a trilogy, easy. And maybe that way, you could’ve given more invested into the characters to engage me more in the movie.
(I’d go into more detail, but holding back in case someone hasn’t seen it.)
But that’s just me.
That said, if the rumor is true, I hope Lucasfilm isn’t using SOLO as a benchmark. I mean ROGUE ONE went through a similar production history, and I personally loved that movie! My only worry here that if it is true, it’ll mean I’ll have to wait wait longer than anticipated for the KENOBI and BOBA-FETT movies.
Currently there’s no word from Lucasfilm if this is true or not. But as soon as I here something, I’ll definitely let you know.
