Since #ReleaseTheSynderCut proved that if fans make a fuss long enough, they will eventually get what they want, Star Wars fans have gathered on social media to try and get Disney to commit to a sequel to the Han Solo spin-off, Solo: A Star Wars Story with the hashtag # MakeSolo2Happen trending on Twitter.
While not the top rated item in it Star Wars franchise, Solo gave fans a brand new adventure based in the universe that included more from The Force and lots of Wookie action. It also served as a potential launch pad for other sequels and even more spin-offs, which is always the case with any movie associated with one of the greatest franchises in the world. For that reason, many assumed that now three years later Solo‘s release, something would have come from Lucasfilm about a new adventure for the mischievous pilot of the Millennium Falcon and his furry companion. Until now, however Solo 2 seems like a no go.
There is a complete lack of updates on whether or not there will be more outings for Han Solo in the ongoing Star Wars universe, played in Aiden Ehrenreich’s prequel, likely due to the lower than expected box office results for the first movie. But that doesn’t mean fans are giving up on the possibility of a sequel for now, and they made their voices heard with a series of tweets that quickly started trending, much like last year on the film’s second anniversary.
Tweeted this photo of George on the Solo premiere for no other reason than for # MakeSolo2Happen, “one user posted. A second said,” I need more Solo you all. This quickly snapped up as one of my favorites. # MakeSolo2Happen “. Another account added,” It’s # MakeSolo2Happen Day! I love Solo a lot, but it was mostly about things we already knew was happening. The Kessel Run. Meeting with Chewie. Grab his blaster. Origin story stuff. I would love a sequel or series so it can surprise me and develop all the new things it introduced. “
John Hoey, the creator of the hashtag, made numerous references to the tag, including by pointing out that it took 7 years for Lucasfilm to develop further The Clone Wars, and that someone involved in that show said to him, “the fans were indeed a big part of saving” the show. “Never think your voice is insignificant when sharing what you like.”
The fight for one Solo sequel saw some fans elaborate on how Disney could continue the story, with plot points and possible developments explored in one or even more sequels, while others simply added their weight by placing the tag repeatedly in the hope that it would wave enough to show Lucasfilm and Disney that there is interest in a new film.
While it would be a bit of a fairytale for fans to lend a hand with a new one Solo film, there are numerous other projects in development and production, including recent confirmation thereof Star Wars: Lando is being developed, so whether it’s the kind of fan action that saw Zack Snyder’s release Justice League adding something to that schedule is something we’ll just have to wait and see.
