Solo: A Star Wars Story, a movie that, from its first announcement, was unwanted by Star Wars fans is projected to cost Disney $50 million dollars, possibly more. With an opening week of $84.7 million here in the United States, and dropping down to $29.2 million its second week, Solo has been deemed a failure by many.Solo is not a bad film, it just suffered from a string of bad luck. After the firing of the directing duo of Lord and Miller with the entire movie nearly filmed, Ron Howard was hired to finish the project and reshoot a large portion of the movie. This caused the film’s budget to massively increase. Along with the recent releases of Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2, moviegoers were picky about what they’d be seeing, and sadly, Solo got the short end of the stick.
The underperformance of Solo is no concern for Disney as they’ve already made billions of dollars this year on their Marvel properties alone. This just means we may not get to see a sequel to Solo.
