Future Star Wars Spin-Off Movies

Last week Star Wars fans heard the worrisome but unsurprising news that any future installments in the Star Wars Story spin-off banner from Lucasfilm were on hold. The news came in the wake of the less than satisfying box office performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story, which was meant to kick off an entire franchise of movies following young Han Solo. However, Lucasfilm released a statement saying that report was “premature” and “speculative,” and multiple Star Wars movies were still in development that hadn’t been officially announced. So what’s the deal here?

New details about future Star Wars spin-offs have emerged, and it sounds like the situation lies somewhere in between. A report indicates that Lucasfilm isn’t slowing down development of any future Star Wars movies, but “they are licking their wounds.” Let’s dive into what that means, including the status of previously reported future Star Wars spin-off movies focusing on Obi-Wan Kenobi and Boba Fett.

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Box Office

Jurassic World raked in a huge $208 million in the summer of 2015, landing one of the best opening weekends of all time (the only non-Disney distributed title in the top 10). That means Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom had a lot to live up to. But the sequel had a satisfying debut with the fourth biggest opening weekend of the year, and Universal’s second biggest debut ever, coming in behind only Jurassic World.

second half of jurassic world fallen kingdom

When the film he was reviewing would demand it, the late Roger Ebert would retell an old story he’d once heard. It was about a child prodigy, gifted at playing the piano, who was lucky enough to meet one of the old masters to perform. And so he did, skillfully getting every part of a famously tricky composition correct in his performance. When the child finished, the old master patted him on the head and said, “You know the notes. One day, maybe you will know the music.”

That’s a line that’s hard to ignore when watching the chaotic Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the second new film in the franchise that knows the notes without getting any of the music correct. This movie is chock-full of references to Steven Spielberg’s modern classic, all of which are simply reminders that this material has been done much better before.
