Star Wars Rumor: Solo Spin-Off Reportedly In The Works For A Disney+ Show

Darth Maul Was Reportedly Cut From First Version Of Obi-Wan Kenobi

Solo: A Star Wars Story was quite the flop at theaters for a Star Wars movie and any plans to make a sequel to the story were firmly put on hold. Yet, I think many fans, myself included, whilst not loving Solo, could see more potential in a sequel that wasn’t just trying to hit all the major milestones in the early years of Han, Chewie, and Lando.

Well according to the latest rumor from scooper Jeremy Conrad on social media, it seems like a spin-off show for Disney + could well be in the works. Check it out.

Conrad writes,

“While we’ll probably not see a sequel or continuation of Han’s story, I’ve heard a rumor that some kid of spin-off set after the events of the movie is being developed as a Disney + series. As it probably wouldn’t be about Han, Chewie, or Lando; some kind of underworld series dealing with the Crimson Dawn and other scoundrels sounds the most likely.”

This actually makes a lot of sense to me, I think the best bits of that movie were those that dealt with the shadier side of the Galaxy, Far, Far away. In fact, my least favorite aspect of the movie was the way they shoehorned in Han’s early connection with the Rebels. I definitely wondered as a fan what came next for Qi’ra when she went to meet up with her new boss Darth Maul (is he even called Darth anymore or did he change his name back to Dwayne Dibley, or the artist formerly known as Darth?). I’d honestly be quite happy to see a Disney + show in the tone of The Mandalorian featuring Emilia Clarke as a new underworld boss. There really would be no need to have Qi’ra ever meet up with Han or Lando again, though the odd cameo appearance by Lando wouldn’t go amiss, I really wouldn’t care to see more of Han and Chewie though.

I know my Last Call Podcast co-host Kyle Malone hated Solo and really has no interest in seeing anything more developed with regards to that story. In fact, Kyle believes they need to stop focusing on the period between Sith (Episode 3) and Hope (Episode 4). The way I see it, if it turns out to be an interesting and unique look at a different aspect of the Star Wars Universe, then I don’t really care what period it has as a setting.
