As crazy as it may seem, we already have another Star Wars film set to debut within the next six months. Solo: A Star Wars Story is supposedly aiming to premiere on May 25, 2018, but that raises the serious question as to why we haven't seen any footage yet. Given the fact that Ron Howard stepped in to replace Phil Lord and Chris Miller over the summer -- when the movie was already close to completion -- the fact that no trailer has dropped yet could be cause for concern among fans as the May release date closes in on us.

But why does it even have to debut on May 25, 2018 at all? Today, we're going to dive into the reasons why Disney and Lucasfilm should delay Solo: A Star Wars Story. There are a few key points to address here, so let's get started with the fact that the Star Wars franchise already seems quite comfortable in the holiday season.

Star Wars Already Owns December

Over the course of the last three years, many fans have become accustomed to the debut of a Star Wars movie during the holiday season. The franchise previously called May home (which Solo: A Star Wars Story intends to revive), but the last two Saga films and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story have seen great success by going relatively unopposed in the middle of December -- not that anyone would want to oppose a Star Wars movie anyway.

Considering how much success Star Wars: The Last Jedi just saw with a December 15 release, there's really no reason to switch things up. By delaying the Han Solo movie to similarly debut in December, Disney and Lucasfilm would not only continue to monopolize winter, but they would also offer Ron Howard extra time to work on the movie and deliver a good product at a date that many fans expect. December will continue to work just fine.
