“Star Wars” Spinoffs of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Put on Hold

Following the poor "Solo" performance, any plans for the spinoffs has been halted.

Following the underwhelming performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story at the box office, the Boba Fett and Obi-Wan spinoff movies have been put on hold. Collider reports that Lucasfilm has decided to instead focus their attention on Star Wars: Episode IX and what the next trilogy of Star Wars films will be after that film. Solo raked in $84.4 million on opening weekend and has since grossed $192.8 million domestically, as well as $339.5 million worldwide. Though this is a lot of money, it is far lower than the performance of other Star Wars movies.
