Solo A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story has been dogged by rumors of a troubled production since Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the film’s original directors, were axed from the film due to creative differences.

And the trailer has garnered mixed reactions, at best.

An actor close to the production of Solo says there was plenty of drama with the directors, confirms that title star Alden Ehrenreich needed an acting coach, and how the reshoots may have helped the production but not the final cut of the film.

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.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Han Solo and Chewie

If Lucasfilm was going to have a spinoff like Solo: A Star Wars Story, it’s probably best that they gave Alden Ehrenreich all the tools needed to help him become Han Solo. And just like they helped Donald Glover to become Lando Calrissian by bringing in Billy Dee Williams, the original actor who first played the character, original Han Solo Harrison Ford stepped in to give some helpful advice to Ehrenreich, and all of the directors of the upcoming spinoff.

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. However, the strategy behind that was that Disney and Lucasfilm wanted to avoid any overlapping confusion between Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Solo may have. 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.
