Star Wars Spin-Off Films Reportedly On Hold

Star Wars actor John Boyega recently spoke out in defence of The Last Jedi actress Kelly Marie Tran after she was targeted online by abusive fans.

No more Solo-s? Lucasfilm reportedly sets aside the Star Wars Story films to focus on trilogy work.

As for the Boba Fett spin-off, the Collider report says it may not even be past the "early talks" stage since the news broke just "before Solo's release". Unlike the first three Disney Star Wars films, Solo occupied a traditional May summer slot, and one so close to two other movies that so obviously overshadowed it.

Of course the May release date could have had something to do with Solo's disappointing performance.

How to Watch Iran vs. Spain
Iran were playing with numbers behind the ball from the word go and frustrated La Roja who were looking for an early goal . Labelled the "Iranian Messi" Azmoun will be facing Spain in the familiar surroundings of the Kazan Arena.

This absolutely doesn't mean we're not getting more Star Wars though. Then story issues led to extensive reshoots on Rogue One that reworked the third act, with Tony Gilroy (The Bourne Legacy) overseeing the new scenes. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were fired in the middle of shooting "Solo", with Ron Howard taking over.

The studio is now putting all of their focus into the upcoming Star Wars: Episode IX, which arrives Christmas 2019, and will continue to develop the previously announced trilogy from Rian Johnson as well as the series of films from Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Both films already had directors attached - Stephen Daldry for the former and James Mangold for the latter - but it's unclear how far along either project was. But it definitely could indicate a pivot towards telling big new stories in the Star Wars universe rather than leaning on filling in the gaps in existing mythos - like Solo and Rogue One did.

Directed by J. J. Abrams, Star Wars: Episode IX is expected to feature the return of Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, and Adam Driver.

More as we hear it.
