Solo Struggles in the Box Office

There was a time when anything that was related to Star Wars was going to be a massive hit. For one thing, the Star Wars movies were well written and well-made. However, after The Empire Strikes Back, there has been a decline in quality when it comes to Star Wars. The prequels which have been written and directed by George Lucas are considered to be inferior to the original trilogy. Revenge of the Sith was the best of the series. About 10 years after the prequels came The Force Awakens. It was met with a lot of praise initially, but fans soon drew comparisons between The Force Awakens and A New Hope.

The most recent film in the Star Wars franchise has been released under the title of Solo: A Star Wars Story. However, this film is not doing very well in the box office. For one thing, it is following in the heels of the massively disappointing The Last Jedi. Another issue was the rough production that the film went through. Then when they finally released a trailer, people weren’t totally sold on the lead actor for Solo. While Donald Glover has impressed people with his portrayal as Lando Calrissian, even that couldn’t save the film.

It seems like the age of Star Wars has been put on pause. Now, this is the age of the MCU with two successful films this years. While both are owned by Disney, one can be very interested in why one property is failing while the other is thriving.
