Despite having the unfortunate distinction of the lowest-box office performance of any Star Wars film to date, Solo: A Star Wars Story has a very loyal and vocal fanbase who want to see more.
This weekend marks the anniversary of Solo hitting theaters, and the hashtag #MakeSolo2Happen was trending for a bit, prompting a tweet from the film’s co-screenwriter, Jon Kasdan (who wrote it along with his father, Star Wars and Indiana Jones alum father Lawrence Kasdan).
Beyond grateful & galvanized by the #MakeSolo2Happen energy on Twitter today. Means so much to everyone involved & ur enthusiasm makes it possible for us to keep advocating for it! 'Cause, the Maker knows, there's a WAR story set in a Galaxy Far Far Away that's yet to be told… pic.twitter.com/8Y3YEhC4SU

There are so many ways a Solo sequel could go- following all four of our main characters of Qi’ra (Emilia Clarke), Lando (Donald Glover), Han (Alden Ehrenreich) and Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo) could set up endless adventures from one end of the galaxy far far away to the other.
Maybe moving a follow-up onto Disney+ as a tv show would work, too.
We may never get another chapter of the pre-Skywalker envelopment in the Corellian smuggler’s life, but, we can enjoy Solo: A Star Wars Story as it stands.
We’ll let you know if anything comes of this fan-push.
