Billy Dee Williams certainly hasn't shied away from staying involved in the Star Wars extended universe via video games and voiceover work, so it stands to reason if Abrams has offered him a spot in the film, he'd jump at the chance. "Solo" grossed $65 million internationally in its opening weekend, including a paltry $10.1 million in China.

However, the film was generally praised by critics when reviews first came out.

The dire numbers will definitely result in some soul searching at the studio, said Disney's worldwide distribution chief Dave Hollis.

"Triplecross" was the sixteenth episode of Star Wars: Forces of Destiny season 2, and it also brings back two familiar faces: IG-88, the bounty hunting droid from The Empire Strikes Back; and Hondo Ohnaka, the fan favorite space pirate who appeared in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.

"There's a question of frequency, and how many times people will go to the movies".

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Disney distribution chief Dave Hollis revealed that he believes that Solo's poor opening weekend might have been caused by two other major blockbusters now in theaters: Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2. "Everyone acknowledged the risk of releasing another movie five months after Jedi". "This is just the fourth movie and the first three did $4 billion combined". We have a Thor and a Black Panther and an Infinity War coming out in November and February and May and each are massively successful. Solo had quite the competition, though, as pointed out by a key Disney exec. The short also illustrates Qi'ra's ability to manipulate both of her opponents with simply a few timely questions that made them turn on each other.
