Solo: A Star Wars Story Cast Photo

When Lucasfilm fired directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller from Solo: A Star Wars Story, it came at a very bad time. The Star Wars spin-off was just about to be completed before the directors were given the axe due to creative reasons. Ron Howard would then step in as their replacement. But that even came with its own complications. While the “creative differences” excuse has been thrown around in situations like these, it appears there is some truth to it.

More on what lead up to Lord and Miller’s firing, how Howard did not want the gig at first, and what George Lucas did to help Howard. Check it all out here below.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

These Star Wars spinoffs are a part of the larger universe and are meant to tell stories that aren’t about the core saga. We saw a little bit of that in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and we will see that once more in the Han Solo standalone film, which has been going by that non-title since the beginning of production and well after Ron Howard came in to direct the film.

But now the film has got an official title. So prepare yourselves, because come May 2018, we will see Solo: A Star Wars Story. More on the this below.

Untitled Han Solo Movie Cast Photo

Philip Lord and Chris Miller (Jump Street films and The LEGO Movie) will no longer be directing the untitled Han Solo Star Wars spinoff.

The two were named the directors of the spinoff back in July 2015, with Alden Ehrenreich taking on the iconic role just last year. That was followed by Donald Glover joining as Lando Calrissian, and Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge joining for other supporting roles. More on the story below.

Donald Glover cast in Star Wars Han Solo movie

This deal is getting better all the time.

Back in August, we reported that Phil Lord and Chris Miller, directors of the upcoming Star Wars Story spin-off that follows a young Han Solo (to be played by Alden Ehrenreich), were looking at Donald Glover, star of Community, Atlanta, and The Martian and the Grammy-winning rap artist known as Childish Gambino, for the role of Han’s fellow charming scoundrel Lando Calrissian.

Today, Lucasfilm has officially announced that Glover will indeed play Calrissian in the as-yet-untitled feature.

Harrison Ford as Han Solo Image

Just moments after Disney announced that Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg would reunite for Indiana Jones 5, comes word that the studio has narrowed down their shortlist for actors to play the lead role in the young Han Solo film to five.

Last year it was revealed that around 2,500 actors had auditioned for the role, indicating that Disney was open to any idea. That list shrunk, with eight A-listers vying for the role. Now that list has gotten even smaller. According to various reports, there are five actors now in contention for the role. Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Eddie The Eagle), Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction), Blake Jenner (Glee), and Jack O’Connell (Unbroken) are the five actors up for the role. More on the story below.

Lawrence Kasdan is the scribe behind some of Lucasfilms’ greatest films like The Empire Strikes Back, The Return Of The Jedi, and Raiders Of The Lost Ark. He’s also behind films like The Big Chill and Dreamcatcher. So when Disney acquired Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy got the scribe to co-write a script for the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The screenwriter will also be co-writing the untitled Han Solo movie with his son, Jon.

The film which will be directed by The LEGO Movie helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller may be Kasdan’s last Star Wars script. Find out more about this story below.
