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

Whenever there is a big trailer for a film like Star Wars, you can be sure that some equally big news will follow. Many were worried about Solo: A Star Wars Story given that the lack of marketing is usually a sign of how bad the film is.

And now that The Last Jedi is out of the way, the marketing team is free and clear to push Solo until its Memorial Day weekend release.

With two new trailers released this past week, more details about the latest spinoff are now emerging, and they are giving us a better idea of what to expect from the upcoming film. More on the story below.
