Setting the scoundrel straight!
By Robert Marrujo:: It's already been a few years since George Lucas sold Star Wars to Disney, but that doesn't mean the series' creator is quite done with it just yet. Solo: A Star Wars Story infamously swapped directors in the middle of its production, exchanging Phil Lord and Christopher Miller for Ron Howard. Howard has shared an interesting story about his time in the director's chair when his friend Lucas came by for a visit.
Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, relayed Howard's tail to Entertainment Weekly. Apparently, Lucas, who's friends with Howard, stopped by the set to say hi. What was to be a simple visit turned into multiple hours, with the two friends shooting the breeze about Solo. While filming a scene, Kennedy alleges that Lucas posited to Howard that it might work better if Han acted in a different way than the script had outlined.
Howard was taken with the suggestion and quickly adapted the scene to accommodate the change. Kennedy couldn't say what the scene was, but she thinks that fans will get a laugh from it when they finally watch it. Solo: A Star Wars Story will release on May 25.
