Howard does, however, encourage fans to not lose hope because anything might happen in the future of the franchise.

“But there’s some great characters launched, and the folks from Lucasfilm love the fans and really do listen so I would never say never — but I’m not aware of any concrete plans right now to extend the story or deal with that particular set of characters.”

The movie series seems to be at a standstill with only the fans and the director himself demanding a second part. Even though the reviews of the movie had been both good and bad, the post-credit scene gave fans a reason to grip onto the story and demand more of what the sequel might be able to offer.

Something the writer pointed out was that currently, the world is getting Star Wars content from every direction. New series, new seasons, and various new movies are all becoming more and more frequent. So adding another Solo movie might not be the best in terms of timing, especially considering the mixed reviews the first part got. Although, he is just as excited to someday get back to writing the sequel and bringing more depth to a character that fans adore so much.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is available to watch on Disney+.
