    A MESSAGE FROM LUCASFILM REGARDING THE UNTITLED HAN SOLO FILM

    The untitled Han Solo film will move forward with a directorial change.

    “Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are talented filmmakers who have assembled an incredible cast and crew, but it’s become clear that we had different creative visions on this film, and we’ve decided to part ways. A new director will be announced soon,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm.

    “Unfortunately, our vision and process weren’t aligned with our partners on this project. We normally aren’t fans of the phrase ‘creative differences’ but for once this cliché is true. We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew,” stated Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.

    The untitled Han Solo film remains scheduled for a May 2018 release.

I will withold judgment, but I can't imagine we will see truly unique visions with the Star Wars spinoff films which is a shame because that is exactly what they should be used for.

    EDIT: And just for background if anyone is curios, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were the masterminds that somehow made the Lego movie and Lego Batman movie work. These guys are good, and it's troubling that Disney thinks they know better how to approach this film.

    Interesting to hear about Lord and Miller. However, I've heard they were clashing with Kathleen Kennedy for some reasons.

    Sources say Ron Howard is in talks to take over the film, but there is no deal as yet.

    Lucasfilm is pleased to announce that Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ron Howard has been named director of the untitled Han Solo film.

    “At Lucasfilm, we believe the highest goal of each film is to delight, carrying forward the spirit of the saga that George Lucas began forty years ago,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “With that in mind, we’re thrilled to announce that Ron Howard will step in to direct the untitled Han Solo film. We have a wonderful script, an incredible cast and crew, and the absolute commitment to make a great movie. Filming will resume the 10th of July.”

    Howard has made some of the biggest hits and most critically-acclaimed movies of the modern era. Among his many films are Lucasfilm’s Willow, Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind (winner of four Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director), The Da Vinci Code, Frost/Nixon, and Rush. He also narrated and produced the beloved comedy series Arrested Development, starred in George Lucas’ American Graffiti, and remains a TV icon for his roles in The Andy Griffith Show and Happy Days.

    The untitled Han Solo film is slated for a May 25, 2018, release.

    That feels like playing it safe.
