Yesterday, it was announced as major breaking news that Ron Howard will be taking over the director’s chair for the new Lucasfilm Star Wars Han Solo spinoff film! Wait, what! The filling in nearly 3/4 of the way through! Many are very excited with Ron taking over as this will be his first time being involved with a Star Wars film and the first time an Oscar-winning director has worked on the Star Wars franchise!
It was just announced recently that Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired from the production of the film after many months of filming. It was reported that these producers were making the film too funny or silly, which could lead to disappointment by the huge Star Wars fan base.
Ron Howard will immediately work on moving this film to its completion with the film still being scheduled for release later this year.
