Chris Miller and Phil Lord discuss leaving ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord recently appeared at Vultures L.A. festival and touched upon their removal from Solo: A Star Wars Story. The duo were famously replaced by Ron Howard earlier this year when Lucasfilm impresario Kathleen Kennedy stepped in to supposedly course correct the films production.

Speaking of the situation the duo said:

“We had the most incredible cast and crew and collaborators. 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. That was a really big gap to bridge, and it proved to be too big.”

Solo: A Star Wars Story is directed by Ron Howard. The film stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Emilia Clarke as Kira, Woodly Harrelson as Beckett, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca. The film also stars Thandie Newton, Warwick Davis and Paul Bettany.

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits cinemas May 25, 2018.
