Han Solo Directors Removed; Ron Howard Ideal to Takeover

CelebNMovies247.com has learned that the co-directors of The LEGO Movie preferred an improvisational approach and a comedic sensibility on the Star Wars spin-off.

What? That sounds terrible and would ruin the foundation that Star Wars is build on. Han Solo needs a talented director, not animation/comedy directors who don’t know how to make a serious movie with comedic aspects.

Han Solo Director were asked to resign from Star Wars spin-off:

Apparently, Lawrence Kasdan, Jon Kasdan, and Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy all agreed with what we are saying. Kasdan, and Kennedy know what works and what doesn’t with a Star Wars spin-off and what Lord and Miller were doing was NOT right.

The movie will NEED to be retooled with a new director, possibly Ron Howard. However, Lucasfilm and Disney remain committed to releasing the stand-alone film over the Memorial Day holiday in May 2018.

Kennedy said:

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are talented filmmakers who have assembled an incredible cast and crew, but it’s become clear that we had different creative visions on this film, and we’ve decided to part ways. A new director will be announced soon.”

After making a mockery of the Han Solo movie, Lord and Miller released this statement:

“Unfortunately, our vision and process weren’t aligned with our partners on this project. We normally aren’t fans of the phrase ‘creative differences’ but for once this cliché is true. We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew.”

Han Solo started production at Pinewood Studios in London back in February.

With a new director, this means that the movie will have to be re-shot and reworked since Lord and Miller were flying off course.

Warren Beatty’s Rules Don’t Apply star Alden Ehrenreich, plays Solo in the origins story. The cast includes Thandie Newton, Woody Harrelson, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, and Fleabag creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Lord and Miller directed The LEGO Movie, 21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street, and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs. They need to stick to LEGO movies, animation, and comedy. It’s a lane that works for them.
