Lucasfilm has Solo star Alden Ehrenreich signed up for three films, he confirmed to Esquire.
We first heard this back in 2016 – and no one was particularly shocked by it then. Signing up your stars for multiple films is pretty standard when you’re dealing with big franchises like Star Wars, even in the (now rare) cases where sequels aren’t planned. I don’t think this means that Solo sequels are a given, but it does give Lucasfilm the option.
(And yes, I’d be shocked if Donald Glover doesn’t have the same stipulation in his contract – and Lando, I think, is a far more likely avenue for a Solo “sequel.”)
Meanwhile, here’s the full Ehrenreich profile from Esquire, where he addresses the Phil Lord and Christopher Miller situation – and says it’s not true that he approached higher-ups about them.
