George Lucas directed a shot for 'Solo' when he visited the set


Entertainment Weekly details how, and why, Academy Award victor Ron Howard came on board to direct the film after the firing of Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The duo reportedly clashed with Kennedy and franchise veteran scribe Lawrence Kasdan who wrote the script. Now that production has wrapped under director Ron Howard and the first trailer for the film has been released, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy is speaking out on the decision to change directions. "I think audiences are gonna feel that love and excitement".

"I know Chris and Phil. And when it was not working out as we had all hoped, it wasn't out of lack of talent".

Reports also stated Lord and Miller were stunned to "find that they were not being granted freedom to run the production in the manner that they were accustomed to". It's rough on everybody and disappointing for everybody, and I've just tried to come in and - of course, Phil and Chris's fingerprints are all over the movie, given how much they put into it and the time they put into it. So, it literally came down to process.
