Lucasfilm hits pause on 'Star Wars Story' spinoff movies

Solo A Star Wars Story is set to be the first flop in the franchise's hstory.

If true - and it's important to note this news has not been officially confirmed by either Lucasfilm or Disney - that would mean that both the Obi-Wan Kenobi spinoff and the standalone Boba Fett movie, both of which were in development before Solo's release, are likely to be put on the back burner for now. The film scored $84.4 million on opening weekend and has grossed $192.8 million domestically (and $339.5 million worldwide) in four weeks, which is nothing to scoff at but is far, far lower than the performance of other Star Wars movies at this benchmark. Going off of a report from a Collider source, there is word that the anthology "Star Wars Stories" will be taking a pause so that Disney can properly plan out Episode IX while also thinking about what the next trilogy of Star Wars movies will be about. To put it simply, while Solo did fine by blockbuster standards, it wasn't the "event" that Lucasfilm expected out of a brand new Star Wars movie. As opposed to Rogue One or the episodic films by J.J.

Next up for Lucasfilm's space opera is the release of Episode IX on December 20th, 2019.

Now a major United States site is reporting that Disney and Lucasfilm has put all future Anthology movie plans "on hold". There has been a lot of speculation about why Solo is underperforming at the box office, with reasons ranging from backlash against Star Wars: The Last Jedi to bad timing in an already packed May. J Abrams concluded the sequel trilogy.

According to the report, Rian Johnson's recently greenlit Star Wars trilogy is not one of the cancelled projects and is still in active development, as are a potential series of films from Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
