Disney boss Bob Iger spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about several projects and topics including Star Wars. When told that “many believe” (though we find that phrasing to be a bit arbitrary) Disney should pump the brakes and not put out a Star Wars movie every year, Iger responded with a reflection on the recent past but […]

On this episode of The Resistance Broadcast we talk about why Solo: A Star Wars Story deserves a sequel. From story-telling, returning characters, new characters, a wide open ending, to how well it was received by fans, we feel the biggest underdog in the franchise since the original Star Wars deserves a proper sequel and we get into why from every possibly angle. Will it happen? There's a very good chance it won't, but we are here to #MakeSolo2Happen!<br /> <br /> This week in THE WILL OF THE FORCE, we ask ourselves questions like - Now that he is Supreme Leader, will Kylo Ren have a throne room and distinct throne in Episode IX?<br /> <br /> To close it out we feature your tweets in RESISTANCE TRANSMISSIONS, did your tweet make the show?

But the film was overall well received by Star Wars fans. The movie had a perfect open ending and we are at that point still 10 years away from the events of A New Hope, leaving plenty of room for more adventures with Han and Chewie, as well as the continuation of Qi’ra’s story with Maul and of course the surprise hit Enfys Nest. Will the home video sales salvage an opportunity for a sequel to Solo? The story set us up for it, but Disney is a business first, so let’s talk about why Solo deserves a sequel! <br /> <br />  <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />  <br /> <br /> RESISTANCE TRANSMISSIONS!<br /> <br /> We pitch a question to you, and you fire away!
