This week, nearly a year since the release of “Solo”, fans on Twitter launched a hashtag campaign to #MakeSolo2Happen and managed to get it trending.

Seeing the fervour online, “Solo” director Ron Howard tweeted, signalling his support for a sequel with a coy smiley face emoticon.

Last year, Howard addressed questions about a potential sequel, telling Fandango, “I think the fans are going to define all of that. I mean I think that Lucasfilm and Disney in casting actors, and particularly younger actors, want to see what happens and build upon that.”

The film went on to gross approximately $390 million at the global box office, the lowest ever for a live-action “Star Wars” film and the first in the franchise to be considered a bomb.
