5 reasons to get excited about Solo

5 reasons to get excited about Solo

After Lord and Miller exited the Star Wars spin-off, director Ron Howard stepped in. This went against Kennedy and Kasdan's wishes, and the two weren't pleased with Lord and Miller's improvisational approach. "I just say over and over again that, yes, it was an incredibly hard decision that we had to make and obviously it was pretty late in the game, which shows we spent a lot of time trying not to have to make that decision", Kennedy said.

Despite the axing, there's no real bad blood between Lord, Miller, and Kennedy.

Weiss and Benioff's canned quote has them saying they plan "to get started as soon as the final season of Game of Thrones is complete".




What she didn't reveal, though, and what we still don't know, is just how much of Solo Howard actually helmed. So some time in 2019 then, which means that after rewrites, casting, the usual Hollywood run-arounds and whatever internet-induced existential crises threaten the movie industry in coming years, perhaps one of the series might make it onto the silver screen in the early 2020s. So, it literally came down to process. Kennedy was left no other choice.

"I said, well, do you know what you'd want to do after American Graffiti?". I hope fans won't even think about how the movie was made. It's rough on everybody and disappointing for everybody, and I've just tried to come in and - of course, Phil and Chris's fingerprints are all over the movie, given how much they put into it and the time they put into it. But in 2012, Lucas sold his creation to Disney, and while he's since visited the sets of The Force Awakens, Rogue One and The Last Jedi, usually that was just to see how these new movies were coming along. "We are really proud of the awesome and world-class work of our cast and crew". "I think in terms of us leaving the project, I think everybody went in with really good intentions and our approach to making the movie was different than theirs. Sometimes people break up, and it's really sad, and it's really disappointing, but it happens and we learned a lot from our collaborators and we're better filmmakers for it".

Debuting in theaters on May 25, Solo: A Star Wars Story is directed by Ron Howard and stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Woody Harrelson as Tobias Beckett, Emilia Clarke as Qi'ra, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Thandie Newton as Val, Phoebe Waller-Bridge as L3-37, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Paul Bettany as Dryden Vos and Harley Durst as Moloch.
