LucasFilm Suspends More “Star Wars” Spin-off Films

In response to poor box office receipts for “#Solo: A #StarWars Movie”, #LucasFilm is suspending work on future “Star Wars” spin-off movies to focus instead on the core franchise movies like the upcoming #StarWarsIX.

This effectively means that there won’t be Obi-wan or Boba Fett spin-offs.

After 26 days since opening, “Solo: A Star Wars Movie” has only made $343-million worldwide, which is $196-million domestic + $147-million internationally. This is a far cry from the near $482-million that the previous spin-off, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”, made domestically in its first 26 days. And that $482-million domestic is $150-million more than what Solo made both domestically & internationally combined.
