    There is a dedicated base of fans who are pushing #MakeSolo2Happen all over the internet this weekend (being the 1 year anniversary of the movie), and even Ron Howard responded. I would love for them to make a Solo Sequel, but realistically it will probably never happen. But I love that there is a cult fanbase out there who love the movie, and think it got short-changed for various reasons last year.

    You know that that hashtag was created by our podcast guys, right? Specifically @John Hoey? They were advertising MakeSolo2HappenDay since Celebration and when it finally hit, people really took to it. You might want to check SWNN twitter from 2-3 days ago. :)

    I just watched their podcast and realized they were the ones who got the ball rolling. Ron Howard and Jon Kasdan responded so who knows.....

    Unfortunately, they don't have any say in it.

    But, more then anything, I personally enjoyed positivity about Star Wars for once. Lately, I have a hard time getting past all the petty negativity and this was lovely.

    The one thing I have noticed is that the Standalone films don't get the widespead hate/arguments like the PT and ST debates. I think fans have a 'take em or leave em' attitude towards the Standalone films, so the only ones debating/care about them are the fans that like them. Where the Saga films still tie into the OT and everyone feels ownership to them so that is why they are so controversial.

    I can't think of 1 Solo or R1 thread that has gotten toxic on this site or overall, but any PT/ST thread is going to find the Pro and Anti crowd somewhere along the line. That is why I am more and more convinced that Standalones were probably the better route for Disney to take (in the long run) then making the ST. I know that the ST was a huge money maker (bringing back Ford, Fisher and Hamill was a reason to print $$$), but I think it hurt the franchise in the long-run because they really don't know where to go right now cause you those characters can't live on forever.

    I think if they would focused on good standalone/stories from the beginning, it would have made less money, but strengthened the fanbase for the long-term cause it would have looked they had a plan. Plus I still contend that the standalones give them the storytelling freedom that the Saga movies don't allow. Right now all I hear people debating about Episode 9 is the return of Palpatine, how Luke Skywalker will be handled, and will Kylo be redeemed. All of these plot points were essentially in ROTJ.
