Lucasfilm Denies Reports Of Spin-off Films Being On Hold

This week there were reports that due to the apparent poor reception of Solo: A Star Wars story at the box office, Lucasfilm was putting their spinoffs on hold and concentrating their efforts on Episode IX and other projects.

However they have weighed in on the rumours to claim that they are false (of course they have!) A statement released yesterday says that these reports are inaccurate and that there are multiple films still in development outside of the confirmed new works by Rian Johnson (currently developing a new trilogy) and Game Of Thrones duo David Benioff and DB Weiss.

Just to get you up to speed, Collider reported that after Solo didn’t do as well as they had wanted, films like Obi-Wan and Boba Fett were no longer in production whilst the company focused on its primary films. Despite the fact that nothing had been confirmed, it seems Lucasfilm wanted to put this fire out before the rumours spread, perhaps a lesson learned after constant Solo production gossip got a little out of hand.

Solo has made $196.2m in its first three weeks, by comparison Rogue One had made $455m in the same amount of time which is going to be a concern for those involved. Soon after the release of Solo, news was released regarding of a Boba Fett movie being directed by James Mangold, what exactly is going to happen to this remains to be seen.
Keep. It. Reel.
