After one year since being released in theaters to mostly poor reviews, Solo: A Star Wars Story 2 is trending on social media.

That’s because fans of the film are trying to get a sequel made, hoping to see what happens of young Han Solo and his rebellious journeys. Even Solo director Ron Howard has chimed in on the recent #MakeSolo2Happen movement, posting a smile on his Twitter account.

Solo went through various reshoots, due to the firing of original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, which in turned cost the film’s storyline and budget. In May of 2018 Howard also shared Disney’s goal in turing Solo into a bigger franchise. “I think the fans are going to define all of that,” Howard told Fandango.

He continued, “I mean I think that Lucasfilm and Disney in casting actors, and particularly younger actors, want to see what happens and build upon that. Certainly, they want the commitment from the young actors, but there are no concrete plans. I think there’s been a lot of creative energy and now marketing energy going behind this movie.”

When asked about the anthology series centering around one-off adventures, Howard said, “I think these are exactly what they’re meant to be, or what they’re designed to be. They’re single movies exploring the galaxy; but of course, as a company, I think they’re going to be very interested to see how people respond to it and take it from there. This whole thing is kind of a cool, ambitious exploration of what the galaxy and the Star Wars sensibility can continue to mean to fans.”

Only time will tell if Disney decides to pursue a big screen sequel or if Solo will head to its Disney+ streaming service. Let us know in the comment section below if you would like to see a Solo sequel.
