For the past few years, Star Wars fans have enjoyed The Force Awakens, the sequel to Return of the Jedi, and Rogue One, the first Star Wars spin-off film.
Now fans are looking forward to the December release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the stand alone Han Solo movie set to release in May 2018. However, the Han Solo film has recently undergone a major change.
Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have left the much anticipated movie about the early years of the famous smuggler.
“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,” said Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
Lord and Miller have written and directed other films such as Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, The LEGO Movie, and the 21 Jump Street franchise.
According to Kathleen Kennedy, the president of Lucasfilm, “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.”
Although the majority of the film’s principal photography has been completed, filmmakers still have to decide whether or not parts of the film have to be reshot.
Despite these changes, fans should still be excited to see Alden Ehrenreich play the role of Han Solo in his 20’s. The film also stars Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian and Joonas Suotamo as the famous wookiee Chewbacca.
