    A few days ago, we shared with you what Solo: A Star Wars Story writers Lawrence and Jonathan Kasdan had to say about the surprising cameo towards the end of the movie. Now, director Ron Howard has spoken with Slashfilm, giving even more details about the unexpected appearance as well as discussing the chance of seeing any Solo sequels in the future.





    When asked about the cameo by Slashfilm Ron Howard responded:



    Howard also talked about the possibility of Solo sequels and whether or not Maul's inclusion was a deliberate hint at future stories:



    Maul's surprise entrance may have been confusing to some, but it did make a lot of sense to fans of Star Wars animation and comics given his return on the Clone Wars series, his subsequent story arc in a comic mini-series, and his later appearance on Rebels. The Solo era is at an untapped point on Maul's timeline, and given his dubious activities at other times, he fits into the story quite nicely.



    Whether you liked the idea of bringing Maul back to the big screen or not, it was really neat to see that they are really sticking to their plan of executing a larger cohesive narrative across all Star Wars media. Maul was 'resurrected' back in 2012, so his appearance in Solo shouldn't really be that big of a game changer. I guess the shock factor comes mostly from the fact that movie-only audiences have been unaware of his survival after his confrontation with Obi-Wan in The Phantom Menace.

    Having been conditioned in the Marvel Studios era of filmmaking, many viewers probably assumed that a bigger plan was being devised behind the scenes, and the idea of a crime trilogy via Solo, Boba Fett, & Kenobi sharing Maul as its villainous connective tissue has already been speculated by fans. While anything is possible, it definitely seems like Lucasfilm is playing it by ear at this point concerning any sequels or spin-offs related to Solo.



    A Boba Fett movie is certainly happening, but whether or not it will have any connection to Solo is yet to be determined, let alone whether or not Maul will be involved. The idea of seeing Boba Fett, Han, and Chewie working for Jabba and going up against Maul's Crimson Dawn crime syndicate sounds very plausible given the conclusion to Solo. But what do you think - should the Boba Fett film tie-in to Solo or should it be its own thing? Do you want to see Maul in future Star Wars movies?

    Yeah, if they want these spin-offs to perform better at the box office and get the kind of traction the Marvel movies have built, then they should treat them like Marvel movies. There should definitely be some overlap between Solo and the Boba Fett movie. Maul and Qi'Ra would be a natural candidates for that given Crimson Dawn's place in the crime world. A brief cameo with Han and Chewie would be cool too. But I'd prefer if they don't have too much time in Boba Fett as I'd love to just see a Solo sequel that focuses on Solo's time with Jabba and the events that led to him to drop that infamous cargo.
