10 Reasons Disney Needs To Make Solo 2 Happen

10. It's A Fan Favourite

Lucasfilm

Despite its poor box office performance, Solo has proved hugely popular among fans, making it to the upper tiers of a number of 'Best Star Wars Movies' across all corners of the internet. Critics lauded the film for its light hearted summer blockbuster tone and stunning visuals, as well as Donald Glover's unforgettable take on the smooth-talking, always-charming Lando Calrissian.

Two years on (and with all future Star Wars Stories apparently scrapped), fans are still calling for a sequel, with a hashtag #MakeSolo2Happen and accompanying petition taking Twitter by storm in recent months.

If Disney is worried about making a box office loss, they could release a lower-budget sequel (for no good reason at all, Solo turned out to be the most expensive Star Wars movie ever made), launching straight on their flagship streaming service Disney+.

Indeed, this might be the best way to go: a Disney+ Solo sequel might even attract fans not convinced by the Mandalorian to subscribe to the service. Plus, a lower-budget adventure might give us the character study fans deserve.

Two hours of Han stalking around gloomy cantinas, lamenting Kira's betrayal and complaining about his new boss Jabba The Hutt? Seems like something Dave Filoni could just about pull off....
