5 Ways That Solo: A Star Wars Story Sets Up Future Films In The Franchise


Despite middling reviews, a problem-laden production and its failure to set the box office alight, Solo: A Star Wars Story still has plenty to offer. Any trepidation around Ehrenreich’s performance as the titular burgeoning smuggler proves unfounded and the buddy chemistry between him and New-bacca, Joonas Suotamo, is a real joy to behold.

As is now a staple of Disney’s saga, there are callbacks to the Original Trilogy and – *gasp* – the prequels that will either excite or exhaust, depending on your point of view (the dice are not a thing. Just leave them alone). Of course, there still burns the obvious question, though: “Do we need to see this?” That’s up for debate, but overall, Solo ends up asking a lot more questions than it answers.

And so, on that note, join us as we take a look at what’s next for both the franchise as a whole and for everyone’s favorite scruffy-lookin’ nerfherder. It may not have planted too many seeds, but Solo: A Star Wars Story certainly dropped more than a few hints of where we might be headed next in that galaxy far, far away.

Of course, if you’ve got any of your own ideas, be sure to add them in via the comments section down below.
