Why Is Solo: A Star Wars Story Is So Hard to Find on Netflix?

Why Is ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ So Hard to Find on Netflix?

On Wednesday, January 10, Netflix added Solo: A Star Wars Story to its vast library. The most recent Star Wars flick was more or less a flop at the box office, bringing in a worldwide total of about $392.9 million, per Box Office Mojo. That may sound like an astounding figure, but in Star Wars land, that’s peanuts: previous films brought in anywhere from $620.2 million (The Last Jedi) to $936.7 million (The Force Awakens) in the United States alone. But box office failure aside, Solo “is perfectly fine,” as our Brett White put it, and it’s therefore an ideal low-stakes movie to stream on Netflix. If you can find it, that is.

The problem, you see, is that Netflix is making it ridiculously hard for users to find Solo: A Star Wars Story. A search for “Solo” brings up results for a Netflix Original movie called Solo, a Bollywood film also titled Solo, a few other Star Wars films, and Solomon Kane starring James Purefoy. Solo: A Star Wars Story doesn’t appear until the fourth line (on my Netflix, at least), and even then, it’s listed after the Spanish version — as well as totally unrelated films like A Christmas Chronicle and The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. Decider has reached out to Netflix about Solo‘s placement on the interface but did not hear back by the time of publication.

A search for “Star Wars” yields better results but really not much. Solo: A Star Wars Story appears in the 2nd line but it’s still located below movies like Thor: Ragnarok and The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Films that are not part of the Star Wars franchise.

Confusing algorithm of Netflix didn’t sit well with Star Wars fans many of whom were hoping to stream Solo on Wednesday.
