The Star Wars universe has a lot of wonder and joy, but it also has some controversy. Recent months especially have seen many directors and actors leave certain projects due to one reason or another. The most public one arguably was directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord departing the Solo feature after “creative differences” with the head of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy. Then, their replacement was none other than Ron Howard. But, if you think it was an easy thing for him to join, you’d be wrong.
It’s easy to look at the Star Wars movie universe and think that everything is fine, after all, The Last Jedi just crossed $500 million dollars at the worldwide box office in less than a week. But, not everything is as smooth as it appears. The Last Jedi is facing some rather divisive critiques from fans, Star Wars Episode IX lost its director, and then brought back J.J. Abrams to finish it up, and the Han Solo anthology film had a lot of issues, and apparently still is depending on how you see things.
It’s been an interesting couple of days for the Star Wars standalone film starring Han Solo. The films original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were let go after disagreements over the tone of the film. But now, we already have a new director in place, and its legendary filmmaker Ron Howard.
