    Rumors abound on the stories of Han, Lando, and Qi'ra continuing in some fashion on Disney+. For the sake of this discussion let's assume all to be true.

    Would you rather see each character get their own show, or have 3 concurrent storylines all in one show? Or some other combination?
    What other characters would you want to see involved?

    Two shows.

    Lando should have his own adventures, and Qi'ra should be the antagonist/nolongerloveinterest for the Solo series.

    That 10 year gap between SOLO and ANH is just too good an opportunity to miss.

    I would rather individual series however I wouldn't be against 3 story lines as one long series, as long as we get more Solo!!!

    I was just thinking that with the mention of Tatooine at the end of Solo, there's plenty of opportunity for even a Kenobi crossover into Solo, but that would mess too much with ANH. I guess there's probably a way to do it though, and still not have both meet directly...

    What if at some point Kenobi hired a smuggler through the Hutts, and unbeknownst to him it ended up being Han? That would be kind of cool. As far as ANH is concerned they've never met before but they are both a lot closer than they know.

    My line of thought is probably pretty similar to this. Solo would feature Han & Chewie, getting into and out of Jabba's good graces. Plenty of opportunity for other underworld characters to appear in there. I would love to see the friction / uneasy alliances between the crime syndicates, like the Hutts vs. Crimson Dawn, which is where Qi'ra would come into play.

    The thing that kind of trips me up is that you also have an easy tie-in to Kenobi with Maul & Crimson Dawn.... so maybe Qi'ra's story lives on partially in Kenobi instead of Solo. Or maybe both. Why not? Lets just go both. :D

    Individual series with potentially overlaping story-lines and arcs. Perhaps something like what the Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage etc. shows did?

    @Angelman's got your answer there! I was actually thinking something along the same lines.

    I want to see Solo 2 in the form of a massive show, only because I don’t seem Lucasfilm doing a Han and Chewie show on its own and they’re who I want to see again the most. Lando doesn’t even have to have a major role in a Solo follow-up since he’s reportedly getting his own show anyway.

    That would just leave two big storylines to weave in and out of: Han Solo and Chewbacca working for Jabba the Hutt and Qi’ra operating Crimson Dawn under Maul’s influence. (With Lando showing up every now and then as a backdoor pilot for his own show.) The way they could tie the two threads together is by having some sort of competition between the criminal syndicates or something.

    The show could even tie in with Rebels and the larger Skywalker narrative by having Vader show up to end this war in the criminal underworld and absolutely annihilating Maul, which could show why Maul was so apprehensive of Vader by the time of Rebels. And at the very end of the series, Qi’ra could finally gain her freedom by betraying Maul and stranding him on Malachor, leaving him to be found by Ezra, Kanan, and Ahsoka in a few years.

    There’s just so much story potential for a Solo follow-up and I think that an epic series that ties in with other parts of Star Wars is the best way to do it. Let’s just hope these rumors come to fruition in some way.

    You know what I would want to see in this show. Lando losing the Falcon to Han in Sabac. That would be a cocky, dramatic scene. This show would be amazing. I’d definitely follow it.

    I could see it either way. The Star Wars comics did a good job of having two separate comics tell the same story. Each show would have its own cast of characters to learn about and love, and that would be great. On the other hand, having everyone together would allow for just overall more fun. But in that case the title of the show becomes a BIG point. If it's called Solo but Lando steals the show, then you've got a problem. If the show is titled after Lando, but everyone is waiting for Han to appear instead of Lando's adventures, then you've got a problem. If it's called Crimson Dawn but Qi'ra is only involved when a villain is needed and isn't a major part, then you've got a problem.

    Flights of the Falcon is terrible name, but maybe that could work if all the shows are one? ...and now I'm think of Flight of the Conchords...

    I've thought of this exact scenario for a Kenobi series/movie. I think I ended up switching it to Lando because as much fun as it would be for Han and Obi-Wan to meet and not know each other beforehand (or for Chewie to be the link between the two), I thought it'd be too much of a risk to upset canon. Hiring Lando - and hearing about Han through him - feels like a better connection while also keeping that slight degree of separation.

    I was thinking the exact same thing! The 2015 Star Wars and Darth Vader comics did that particularly well, where you may get the same story from different points of view, and it was an exciting puzzle to piece the story together.
    Also, the CW DC shows (usually just Arrow and the Flash) did that as well!

    What about this: Four somewhat overlapping shows set in the pre-ANH era; Solo & Chewie, Lando, Cassian & K2-SO, and Kenobi.
    • Solo & Chewie overlaps with Lando 'cause of course they do (i.e. the smuggling/L3-37/Millennium Falcon/common history connection)
    • Solo & Chewie overlaps with Cassian & K2-SO via Enfys Nest (i.e. the insurgency connection)
    • Lando overlaps with Cassian & K2-SO via suave spy stuff (i.e. the high society connection)
    • Kenobi does NOT overlap with Solo & Chewie (or, there's a possible tweak here in that ANH almost makes it seem like Kenobi knows Chewbacca from earlier. There COULD be an behind-the-scene PT connection there, somehow. Let's call it "the Yoda connection" for good measure)
    • Kenobi's current "d@mn fool idealistic crusade" might touch base with Lando in high society and Cassian & K2-SO in insurgency circles (possibly eventually tipping Bail Organa off to the fact that Kenobi is still alive - heck, Bail & Obi Wan could probably even meet, through the Rebel conneciton, without it breaking continuity!).
      • If Ahsoka becomes a thing here, then she is almost guaranteed to be the connective tissue between Cassian & K2-SO and Kenobi. (But, Kenobi knowing that Ahsoka is alive does cause some problems with Luke, as Kenobi should have mentioned her as a potiential ally in the OT. Of course, Kenobi and Ahsoka could have a falling out in the series that prompts him to never mention her to Luke (and Yoda?)... still, the easiest way to handle canon here is to have Kenobi and Ahsoka never meet post the PT.
    • And then there's the Crimson Dawn, which could overlap with ALL storylines, running like a common thread through all shows, making it the Big Bady faction that all shows spend seasons dealing with (read: Maul = SW's version of MCU's Kingpin), relegating The Empire to a mostly monolithic background threat for all shows except Cassian & K2-SO (and possible other shows towards the end of their run). In other words, the Crimson Dawn could work:
      • for Solo & Chewie via Qi'ra (i.e. the love interest/common history connecitoin),
      • for Lando via Qi'ra (i.e. the high society/common history connection),
      • for Cassian & K2-SO via either Qi'ra or Maul or underlings (i.e. the underworld connection), and...
      • for Kenobi via (the building threat of) Maul (i.e. the common history/common destiny connection - man, I would love to see the final Kenobi vs. Maul duel reimagined as a weighty live-action showdown at some point several seasons down the line!).

    How about that? :)

    The music for the end credits was a bit different in the clip, but this was the music that really should have been played in the movie.

    How about Star Wars: Outlaws as a name for this project? That way it doesn’t have to completely focus on any one character and can delve into the criminal underworld in general.

    I prefer 2 more movies following the story told in Solo. To complete a Solo trilogy like the others SW movies (except RO).

    If its going to be a theatrical released or as a TV format it doesn't matter.

    All 3 story lines in one massive series.

    Like 8 to 10 episodes maximum.

    Make it a Prequel, I want to see Han Solo spending time at the Imperial Academy. I'm not interested in watching stand alone episodes with Han and Chewie Adventures set after the time of Solo.

    Furthermore we would learn more about the Empire. That would be a win-win IMO. There is too much focus on the Rebllion and the Resistance in the current canon.

    I dunno... I like the idea of a series that introduces us to a new character, but in various episodes will meet and encounter the likes of Han and Lando and Crimson Dawn, and not necessarily all at the same time. Boba Fett would should up as well of course, and maybe some of the other bounty hunters we know.

    Failing that, something similar but with a focus on Lando. Although I'm not sure how much scope there is for Han featuring as well. Didn't 'Solo' pretty much tick all the boxes in one movie for everything we'd already heard about their past? Is ESB the next time they meet?

    How about an Enfys Nest show?

    She's a pretty new character, so there's a lot of ground that could be covered with her. She's rooted in both the proto-Rebellion (relatively unexplored, especially since it appears separate from the cells we've seen in Rebels), but also the criminal underworld.

    She's poised to be in further conflict with Crimson Dawn, Qi'Ra, Maul, the Hutts (and by extension, Chewie and Han), potentially have some run ins with Lando and bounty hunters, crossover with a young Cassian or Din Djarin, or Kanan and Hera... lots of opportunities.

    Oh, and she's a badass character.
