Standalone Star Wars Movies Have Been Put On Hold

Disney and Lucasfilm were riding high thanks to a string with recent Star Wars films that made lots of money at the Box Office.

Well their winning streak did not last forever because Solo: A Star Wars Story severely underwhelmed at the Box Office earlier this year when it released in late May

Lucasfilm had lots of Star Wars movies in pre-production including standalone movies based on the characters of Boba Fett, Obi-Wan Kenobi and more just to name a few.

However, the future of these films are in limbo at the moment because the studio is working hard now on how to maximize profits.

In an exclusive report from Collider, the website has learnt that every Star Wars standalone movie has now been put on hold.

This includes films that have the "A Star Wars Story" in their subtitle. So far only Solo and Rogue One have been released under that banner.

Now Disney and Lucasfilm are instead putting all of their efforts in Episode IX and the Rian Johnson trilogy.

The only reason the standalone movies have been put on hold is thanks to the poor Box Office reception of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Solo: A Star Wars Story was released a month ago and has only grossed $343 million worldwide at the Box Office thus far.

This number is very disappointing considering the budget for the film was around $275 million thanks to a lot of reshoots.
