    I mean word of mouth limited the box office. The opening weekend projections for "The Last Jedi" were accurate, but bad word of mouth limited the total gross of the film.

    The pessimistic global box office prediction for "The Last Jedi" was $1.447 billion vs. an actual worldwide gross of $1,332 billion.

    I think the most idiotic part is what they did to the character. Every fun, light-hearted adventure now leads to "and then everything he fought for was destroyed and he was murdered by his own son." It's such a spectacularly stupid thing to do.

    My first reaction, "You have got to be kidding me?"

    Many people have commented that with Lucasfilm being bought out by Disney that Disney was going to milk this franchise for all it's worth. This was confirmed with the announcement of 2 completely different trilogies that will go into production after Episode 9.

    Now to learn that they are actually turning the Solo Story into a Trilogy of movies? Personally I think this is getting beyond ridiculous.
    I think this announcement is more damage control from Lucasfilm. Rian Johnson's new trilogy was announced in November 2017, before "The Last Jedi" came out. It was as if Lucasfilm knew "The Last Jedi" would be divisive and wanted to put a positive spin on it, e.g., "This movie is soooo good we're giving the director a whole new trilogy."

    Now, half of Star Wars fandom is planning to boycott "Solo" and is actively rooting for that film to fail. So Lucasfilm "leaks" that "This movie is soooo good it's the first of a whole new trilogy."

    I'll believe it when I see it. Before the "The Last Jedi" opened, it was projected to make $742 million domestically. It actually made $620 million. Interestingly, the opening weekend forecast was right on the money. It was projected to make $215 million and actually made $220 million. That shows you the power of word of mouth right there.
