The anthology film, which gave us Han Solo’s origin story, provided us with so many moments: how Han got his last name, meeting Chewbacca, young Lando Calrissian, that cameo!, and more. The movie also ended with the possibility that a Solo sequel could happen.
The growing sentiment from fans is they want it to happen. A social media campaign has made its way through much of Star Wars Twitter, which was started by The Resistance Broadcast and has since created a Twitter account for it.
Even with the box office “failure” Solo had been, there are still so many reasons for a sequel or two.
Here we list five reasons we want a sequel to Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Han and Chewie’s adventures
Han Solo and Chewbacca are one of the greatest friendships in cinema. Even through all of the drama in their personal lives, they always had in each other.
In Solo, we saw how their friendship formed. Han and Chewie worked together to free themselves as prisoners in the Imperial Army. Then, they only had each other as they manipulated their way on to Beckett’s crew.
They’re trust in each other formed quickly despite their muddy beginnings.
And we want more of it. Seeing Han and Chewbacca on more adventures would be fantastic. We would get to see how they shaped each other. Chewbacca always seemed to be Han’s moral compass, and many Star Wars fans would love to see that friendship grew deeper.
How did Chewbacca get his bowcaster? Why did they stick together? Did Chewie ever have thoughts of leaving and going to find his family?
There’s so much more that could be done with these two great friends.
