Solo: A Star Wars Story will hit theaters this Memorial Day weekend. It’s the second spin-off to be released as a part of the Star Wars anthology series. While it is projected to be a box office hit, the film has had its behind-the-scenes problems. The top being Phil Lord and Chris Miller‘s exit from directing the film due to creative differences. Though Lucasfilm was able to find Ron Howard as their replacement, details on the Lord and Miller split from Lucasfilm were bound to come out sooner or later.

Now we are finding out more about what happened and the costs of those reshoots – 70% of which came from Howard. Check out what they had to say below.

Solo A Star Wars Story

Later this Summer, Solo: A Star Wars Story will be the latest Star Wars film to hit theaters. Unlike the core saga, Solo is a spinoff that will focus on the titular character’s origins. Han Solo, made famous by Harrison Ford, will now be played by much younger Alden Ehrenreich. Joining him will be Donald Glover, who plays a younger version of the smooth Lando Calrissian. While we have seen a couple of trailers and TV spots for the new film, the latest featurette for Solo details what the spinoff will be about and this is a different universe than we’re used to. Check out the featurette “Becoming Solo” here below.

There are new details emerging about the content that will be seen on Disney’s yet-to-be-named streaming service. The service will launch in 2019 and provide customers with content from a wide-range of Disney properties from Disney itself to Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm.

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.
