Considering it is also reported to be the most expensive Star Wars film ever made, industry estimates suggest that it would need to take $500million just to break even. The article specifically states that the individuals attached to the Obi-Wan Kenobi movie, which has never been officially confirmed by Lucasfilm, are no longer involved.

According to a new report, Lucasfilm has put plans for further Star Wars Story spin-off films on hold after Solo disappointed at the box office.

The box office for Han Solo is at a current dismal $342 million, which is a horrendous return considering the three previous Star Wars movie all surpassed a billion dollars.

Logan director James Mangold was also reportedly set to helm a Boba Fett movie, but this report doesn't indicate what will happen to the solo movie focused on the bounty hunter, though it seems safe to say it won't go into production.

The news, however, won't affect the previously announced Star Wars trilogy from Rian Johnson or the Star Wars films from Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

The Star Wars standalone films have had to undergo director changes for both films with Tony Gilroy being brought on to help reshoot Rogue One and Phil Lord and Chris Miller being let go and veteran Ron Howard taking over for Solo.

Solo did really well by any blockbuster standard when it came to the box office, but didn't quite hit the the lofty expectations Disney has for such a massive Star Wars event. And between Star Wars Rebels and the official Star Wars comic, we've already filled some gaps in Obi-Wan's timeline, like what he did after watching over Luke Skywalker on Tatooine. Lucasfilm will instead focus on Star Wars: Episode IX and its future trilogies.

More as we hear it.
