Ron Howard Confirms Lucasfilm Isn’t Developing a Solo Sequel

Ron Howard confirms that Lucasfilm isn’t developing a Solo: A Star Wars Story sequel

Even though Solo: A Star Wars Story probably doesn’t rank highly on anyone’s list of the best Star Wars films, the movie ended on a pretty big cliffhanger when it was released in 2018. So it makes sense that some fans are hoping to get a sequel, if only to tie up loose ends. Over the last two years, rumors about Lucasfilm’s plans for Alden Ehrenreich’s young Han Solo have continued to swirl online. But now, a new update has come courtesy of director Ron Howard, and it’s not very reassuring.

Howard recently spoke to Radio Andy on Sirius XM (via about the various projects he’s currently working on. Sadly, his upcoming slate doesn’t include a Solo follow-up.

“Well, there’s no sequel planned now,” said Howard. “And it’s amazing to be a part of a Star Wars movie that seems to be a kind of underground hit, which is not what you’d expect. But that’s been an odd, strange journey for that movie.”

“Strange” doesn’t even begin to describe Solo’s evolution from concept to screen. Lucasfilm originally hired Phil Lord and Chris Miller to direct the movie in 2015 and they began shooting in 2017. However, the studio fired them a mere five months into production due to creative differences. Howard subsequently came onboard to replace them, and he allegedly re-shot at least 70% of the film.

Howard’s latest comments follow rumors that began making the rounds last week about how Lucasfilm was considering a new Disney+ series headlined by Donald Glover’s young Lando Calrissian. Unfortunately, a show like this probably won’t be materializing anytime soon. Solo co-writer Jon Kasdan also weighed in on the chances of a sequel back in March, but his outlook was similarly bleak. Regardless, Howard and Kasdan aren’t completely severing their relationship with the House of Mouse. During the same interview with Radio Andy, Howard claimed that their long-gestating Willow sequel series is in “active development” at Disney+.
