You’re right, but I don’t think Disney looks at it that way. If it grossed just a million dollars, then they know they made a mess of it, not with the current $1.3 billion.Box office is a measure of how many people paid to see a movie, not a measure of how many people liked a movie.

For Disney a signal they’re on the right track.
I haven’t seen Solo yet, it will be a blind buy. But definitely will buy the UHD and this edition of course.
go watch it bloody good film imho stands up on its own and should have been called when han met chewie really.
June 2018 Lucasfilms had said the followingAbsolutely agree with the first statement here.. you have to first pay to see a film to realise you don't like it and the fact is the majority of Star Wars fans did not like this movie. As a movie it has been shot well, the acting is fine and the special effects are great...technically it's a good movie but as most would agree, it's not a good Star Wars movie.
As for the second statement, I think Disney do see it the way the fans are seeing it because Solo has made peanuts compared to Rogue One, Force Awakens and Last Jedi. For this reason they've scrapped their "a Star Wars story" slate and are currently on a course correction. Did it tank because of Last Jedi? I think that's a big part as that movie left a bad taste in alot of fans mouths. Ultimately throwing a Star Wars movie out every year going forward hinges mainly on the core fan base and if you're pissing them off with shitty movies then they just won't come, just like with Solo. I personally liked Solo, preferred it to Rogue One but that's me.
That whole statement is so vague if that's what they're actually saying. To say rumours are inaccurate isn't saying they're wrong completely, there's probably elements that aren't true but I also bet there are elements that are. The facts are they outright stated they would be making and releasing a new Star Wars film every year going forward from the Force Awakens. Before Last Jedi officially released they were making statements on because how great the movie was that Rian Johnson would be getting his own trilogy and there were plenty of talks of a Boba Fett and Obi Wan Kenobi movie. Last Jedi releases, pretty much hated or that's the general consensus. Solo comes out and flops at the box office by Disney standards especially compared to the previous 3 films then all of a sudden Johnson's trilogy buzz goes away... no confirmation of the next movie after episode IX and lots of inside reports of a reshuffling of power inside Lucasfilm. Where there is smoke there's fireJuly 2018 Disney had said
Lucasfilm isn't scrapping their A Star Wars Story plans
Lucasfilm said the rumors were "inaccurate" and "speculative at best." Lucasfilm have said that there are still "multiple" Star Wars films currently in development that have not been officially announced
