    <p style='text-align: center;']ABOUT THE MOVEMENT </p>
    The hashtag was created by our own John Hoey, and has been an active campaign of positivity started by our podcast The Resistance Broadcast with John, James Baney, and Lacey Gilleran. But it isn't about us, it is about ALL of us. Here are fans of all ages sharing why they want to see Disney and Lucasfilm #MakeSolo2Happen!

    #MakeSolo2Happen Went Viral

    The hashtag made waves when the podcast launched #MakeSolo2Happen day on May 23 2019, celebrating the one year release of Solo. It became a top trending topic in the United States and internationally, even beating out the marketing campaign for the new Terminator movie which also launched that day. The hashtag was a top trending topic once again in 2020.



    Acknowledgments

    The movement has been recognized and acknowledged by many involved with Solo including:
    • Director Ron Howard
    • Writer Jon Kasdan
    • Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca)
    • Erin Kellyman (Enfys Nest)
    • Ray Park (Darth Maul)
    • Producer and ILM Head Rob Bredow
    • Puppeteer Brian Herring
    • Composer John Powell
    • Creature Performer Nick Kellington
    • Sound Editor Matthew Wood
    Even Lucasfilm’s VP of live action development and production Michelle Rejwan spoke with us about it at the Global Press Conference for The Rise of Skywalker.
