The clamour for a second Solo big screen adventure is real, and despite the movie being criminally overlooked at the US and worldwide box office – what were people thinking? – a year after its release the #MakeSolo2Happen gained serious traction, enough to grab the attention of one of the films screenwriters, Jon Kasdan.
Kasdan tweeted about the campaign, making it clear that he would absolutely be interested in continuing the adventures of Han, Chewie and co.
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… pic.twitter.com/8Y3YEhC4SU

Since Solo, Kasdan moved on to the 5th Indiana Jones and then – rumour has it – onto the proposed Willow TV series which will see him not only reteam with Solo director Ron Howard and Solo star Warwick Davis, but take on Lucasfilms third major original franchise. It appears that Kasdan is a keeper as far as LFL are concerned, so if anyone’s going to be writing the further adventures of Han and Chewie, he’s the orbak to bet on.
