Chewbacca actor Joonas Suotamo wants to be reunited with his pal, Han Solo, for some good ol’ fashioned shenanigans in a galaxy far, far away. CBR reports that Suotamo recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter and was asked if he keeps in touch with his Solo: A Star Wars Story co-star, Alden Ehrenreich. The 33-year-old actor revealed:
“I do keep in touch with Alden every once in a while, but I haven’t seen him since the premieres. Every now and then, we’ll message each other, and I hope he’s doing great. If we ever return to Solo, I can’t wait to work with him again."
Suotamo and Ehrenreich joined forces in 2018 for the spinoff film that followed young Solo and Chewy’s beginnings as galactic smugglers. They were also joined by Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke as Qi'ra, as well as Donald Glover as a young Lando Calrissian, and Woody Harrelson as Beckett.
While the film was generally well-received by critics and the fandom, it grossed $392.9 million, which was $107.1 million short of the goal needed to break even with production costs. Because of this, it is highly unlikely that we will see a Solo sequel anytime soon, especially given the fact that Disney and Lucasfilm seem to be focused on TV shows on Disney+ for now.
However, in the Star Wars universe, fans never know what will happen. There is always a small chance that we will someday see Suotamo and Ehrenreich in the front seat of the Millennium Falcon once again.
