I loved Ron Howard’s Solo and it would have been awesome to see the story it started continue. While there are currently no concrete plans for a Solo sequel, Howard believes that the interest the fans have in the story and characters bodes well for the future of these characters.

While speaking to the Lights, Camera, Barstool podcast, Howard Explained:

“I think there is interest in those characters. I think there’s interest in [the] gangster world… somewhere down the line. One great thing is that there’s been a lot of affection shown for Solo kind of in its afterlife, and so of course that keeps boding well for them to eventually turn it around.”

As you may have seen, there’s been a #MakeSolo2Happen campaign on Twitter. During the height of that campaign, Screenwriter Jonathan Kasden said, “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…”

Kasdan later teased a Solo sequel in 2020 with the following post:

Ron Howard went on to praise Lucasfilm’s “commitment to excellence” when referring to The Mandalorian, which his daughter, Bryce Dallas Howard, has been a director on.

Howard also shared Harrison Ford’s reaction to his movie saying that he “liked Solo very much and was very supportive when he saw it, and was so gracious and complimentary to Alden [Ehrenreich]. He said some things publicly but privately it was really great to see Harrison like put his hand on Alden’s shoulder and say ‘great job kid’ kind of thing… and Alden worked so hard… and it was a very high-risk sort of situation for him and he was a cool customer and really was a pleasure to work with, as was that entire cast.”

There have been rumors of a Lando Calrissian series with Donald Glover returning to the role. But there’s been no confirmation of that. I don’t know if we’ll ever get a Solo sequel, but it would still be cool to see the stories of these characters continue in some way. There are a lot of good ideas and story concepts to play with.
