From We Got This Covered:

Solo: A Star Wars Story unfortunately went down as the first real flop in the franchise. However, it still has a lot of fans out there who are calling for it to get a sequel. Lucasfilm is unlikely to keep going with the series on the big screen though after it struggled at the box office, but there’s so much story potential set up in that film that they’d be foolish to waste it. Thankfully, we’re hearing that there are plans to make a sort of Solo sequel, just in a way fans wouldn’t expect.

As We Got This Covered has previously reported, Lucasfilm is working on an Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show for Disney Plus, with Ewan McGregor likely to reprise his role as the hermit Jedi knight.

    Darth Maul is synonymous with Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

    Just because he was pigeonholed into Solo (which, by the way, I still haven’t seen – rental price is crazy high), doesn’t mean you have the right to appropriate him.

    I’m very much for an Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series, though it’s almost certain to be set much before Solo, as that stand-alone was set a full decade after RotS. The writer of this article needs to understand that this show will not be made to fix any problems they have with Solo.
