RUMOR: Future Star Wars Spin Off Movies Have Been Put On Hold By Lucasfilm

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Collider is reporting that Lucasfilm has decided that after the dismal performance of “Solo: A Star Wars Story” at the box office, that they are considering putting all future Star Wars spin-off movies on hold.

From Collider:

It may be a while before we see any more movies like Solo: A Star Wars Story out of Lucasfilm. Sources with knowledge of the situation tell Collider that Lucasfilm has decided to put plans for more A Star Wars Story spinoff movies on hold, instead opting to focus their attention on Star Wars: Episode IX and what the next trilogy of Star Wars films will be after that film. Sources tell us that the previously rumored Obi-Wan movie was in active development, but those who were working on the film are no longer involved. It was recently reported that Logan filmmaker James Mangold was in early talks to write and direct the Boba Fett film, but that was before Solo’s release.

If this rumor is true, it appears that Lucasfilm has realized that they need to be more selective about which characters they choose for future spin-off movies. Maybe the failure of Solo could go down as a good thing if  Lucasfilm begins to focus on quality instead of quantity.
