After Willow Series’ Failure, Kasdan Wants Another Go at Star Wars

 

Jonathan Kasdan, creator of the excruciatingly woke Willow series on Disney+, is now expressing his desire to return to the Star Wars galaxy by revisiting his previous Lucasfilm property, Solo: A Star Wars Story. Kasdan and his father Lawrence co-wrote Solo, which was coincidentally directed by Ron Howard, the same guy who directed the original Willow movie.

 

Kasdan learned nothing about pleasing audiences from Ron Howard

 

Kasdan surely must know that there is very little fan interest in further exploring the area of the Star Wars universe he introduced in Solo, specifically since the movie was such a failure Even Ron Howard knows better. But for some reason, Kasdan is convinced that the studio should let him have another go at it and believes they should take their cue from what has been working with their other strip-mined property, Marvel.

 

 

Kasdan recently told the Hollywood Reporter:

 

“I have been intrigued by the wonderful Werewolf by Night as a potential form of storytelling … So, I would love to see Lucasfilm embrace a short-form novella version for telling some of their stories. That certainly seems like a place where future stories about those characters could live.”

 

But with the release of the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, the initial reactions to both Marvel Specials have been very positive. And Emilia Clarke, who played Qi’ra in Solo, has previously expressed interest in returning to the character. Of course, any actor that wishes to continue working will always tell the press that they would be willing to do more of the same. And let’s be honest, Clarke’s indie comic project was pure garbage, so she should probably just stick to acting.

 

Will Kathleen Kennedy allow Jonathan Kasdan to return to the Star Wars universe after his massive Solo failure and a humiliating stint on the Willow series? The possibility is probably more likely than you can imagine.
