Solo: A Star Wars Story didn't exactly make a huge impact at the box office, but it was mostly well received by audiences, and fans remain desperate to see some sort of continuation - mainly due to Lucasfilm's decision to essentially leave things on a cliffhanger with the surprise appearance of Maul and Qi'ra's unresolved story arc.
During a recent interview with Radio Andy on Sirius XM (via ComicBook.com), director Ron Howard was asked about a potential Solo sequel, and replied: "Well, there's no sequel planned now."
That shouldn't be taken as confirmation that it definitely isn't happening, because a) Howard isn't exactly going to spoil Lucasfilm's plans, and b) there's nothing to say he would privy to what they're doing anyway. After all, it's not been reported that we're getting a big screen sequel to Solo; instead, the story is reportedly set to continue on television via the Disney+ streaming service.
Regardless, Howard went on to acknowledge that he's glad Solo has found an audience despite its failings at the box office. "It's amazing to be a part of a Star Wars movie that seems to be a kind of underground hit," the filmmaker explained, "which is not what you'd expect, but that's been an odd, strange journey for that movie."
Time will tell what the future holds in store for the characters from Solo, but it would be a great shame if Lucasfilm didn't find a way to address those lingering questions fans have about the heroes.
