There has been a lot of speculation about why Solo is underperforming at the box office, with reasons ranging from backlash against Star Wars: The Last Jedi to bad timing in an already packed May. Now we have reports from Collider that Lucasfilm is going to hold off on pumping out another A Star Wars Story film.

A new LEGO Star Wars set based on Solo: A Star Wars Story has been revealed in official images, with 75217 Imperial Conveyex Transport representing the film's daring heist sequence. The next two entries were rumored to be an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie directed by Stephen Daldry (The Reader, The Hours) and a Boba Fett movie written and directed by James Mangold (Logan, 3:10 to Yuma). This also means a standalone project from the much-loved bounty hunter, Boba Fett, could be a long time coming.

Lucasfilm has reportedly postponed its "A Star Wars Story" anthology series after Solo fell short of expectations at the box office. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opens next year at Walt Disney World in the late fall. "Even if you paid for a ticket!" As the most expensive Star Wars movie in history, with a budget over $250 million, its current global box office total of $343 million doesn't look so great compared to the over $1 billion brought in by every other Star Wars movie Disney has made.

While I personally would have enjoyed seeing McGregor return to the screen as Obi-Wan Kenobi, a role many consider to be a shining light in the Prequel Trilogy, I can not help but feel that this is the correct choice. What? This is Star Wars we're talking about here.

The news comes to us from Collider and is somewhat of a drastic reversal considering the recent murmurings of as many as nine films in the making.
