ABOUT THE MOVEMENT
The hashtag was created by our own John Hoey, and has been an active campaign of positivity started by our podcast The Resistance Broadcast with John, James Baney, and Lacey Gilleran. But it isn’t about us, it is about ALL of us. Here are fans of all ages sharing why they want to see Disney and Lucasfilm #MakeSolo2Happen!
#MakeSolo2Happen Went Viral
The hashtag made waves when the podcast launched #MakeSolo2Happen day on May 23 2019, celebrating the one year release of Solo. It became a top trending topic in the United States and internationally, even beating out the marketing campaign for the new Terminator movie which also launched that day. The hashtag was a top trending topic once again in 2020.
The movement has been recognized and acknowledged by many involved with Solo including:
- Director Ron Howard
- Writer Jon Kasdan
- Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca)
- Erin Kellyman (Enfys Nest)
- Ray Park (Darth Maul)
- Producer and ILM Head Rob Bredow
- Puppeteer Brian Herring
- Composer John Powell
- Creature Performer Nick Kellington
- Sound Editor Matthew Wood
Even Lucasfilm’s VP of live action development and production Michelle Rejwan spoke with us about it at the Global Press Conference for The Rise of Skywalker.
If you’d like to buy a #MakeSolo2Happen T-shirt, they are available here on spring.com. The design for the logo (which was designed by James Baney), is also available on mugs, stickers, hoodies, and more!
This isn’t a demand, this isn’t a petition, it’s simply a positive show of love for Solo: A Star Wars Story and our hope for more adventures with Han, Chewie, and the rest of the awesome characters from the film. So join the movement and let’s #MakeSolo2Happen!
