While Solo: A Star Wars Story may have underperformed at the box office during its 2018 debut, there’s a possibility that the story isn’t over just yet for the young Han Solo.
The publication reports that the idea of a Solo spin-off “has evolved into a true continuation of where the story left off at the end of the 2018 film”, with the film’s cast expected to return.
RadioTimes.com has reached out to Disney+ for comment.
Earlier this month, Ehrenreich revealed on Josh Horowitz’s Happy Sad Confused podcast that he would love to do a Solo sequel on the condition that “it would have to be the right version of it”.
He’s also said that while he didn’t know anything about a potential sequel, he had heard some rumours about happenings in the Star Wars world.
“I think our movie was kind of the last of the conventional-era Star Wars movie release time. I’ve heard soooome stuff, but nothing concrete,” he told Esquire.
Since Ehrenreich’s comments, various rumours of different Solo spin-offs have surfaced, including a possible Disney+ series focused on Lando Calrissian, with Atlanta’s Donald Glover reprising his role as the intergalactic smuggler.
Solo: A Star Wars Story, which debuted in cinemas in May 2018, also starred Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Paul Bettany.
The film, which was originally directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller before Ron Howard took over, earned $393.2 million (£305.39 million) at the box office but needed at least $500 million to break even.
A Solo sequel would be the latest Star Wars project to land on Disney+ after the streamer announced earlier this month that Clone Wars spin-off Star Wars: The Bad Batch would be arriving on the platform next year.
