Solo: A Star Wars Story
While watching “Solo: A Star Wars Story” from director Ron Howard, I couldn’t help but wonder how different it might have been if directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller had remained on board.
You may recall that Lord and Miller were unceremoniously dumped/fired by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy just four months into filming “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” allegedly for creative differences. Howard was brought in to finish the film—about 70 percent of it--and Lord and Miller received executive producing credit. The two are best known for directing “The Lego Movie,” “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” and “21 Jump Street.”
So, how “Solo: A Star Wars Story” would have turned out under their quirky style, we’ll never know.
