No matter how Solo: A Star Wars Story eventually turns out, there'll always be the nagging question of what it could have been.
How much of the film is his and how much is theirs? Reportedly reshooting a big portion of the movie, it's hard to know whether the finished product will be anywhere near the same as it could have once been. I dont really want to explain it. I hope fans won't even think about how the movie was made. I could understand why you'd ask, and some might even be curious, but look, everybody who has been involved in this has done nothing but love what this movie could be, and that's been the vibe around it. I'll always love "Star Wars".
We have been told that "These new films will be separate from both the episodic Skywalker saga and the recently announced trilogy being developed by Rian Johnson, writer-director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi". But an exciting one.. Hopefully, Lucas was able to give Howard some advice that will help him deliver the film that fans are hoping for.
Funnily enough, Howard reveals he wasn't the only familiar face on the Solo set while the Star Wars stand-alone was going through its most tumultuous period.
He came by to visit the first day that I picked up shooting. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and unsafe criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes. It's going to be an interesting few months for "Star Wars" fans. "Never tell me the percentages". "So he didn't offer a lot of advice except, 'You'll get this'".
That brief set visit became a longer one.
Abbas receives Indian Prime Minister in Ramallah
Abbas said after their meeting that he remains committed to negotiations with Israel as the path toward Palestinian independence. The two-state solution envisions independent Israeli and Palestinian states coexisting side by side peacefully.
"He had meant to just kind of stop by and say hi, and he stayed five hours", Kathleen Kennedy, the head of Lucasfilm, told EW.
In other words, George Lucas helped direct a small part of Solo.
Lucasfilm may boast a woman at its head, Kathleen Kennedy, but its leadership has failed to find reflection in who's actually being hired to tell the stories of the Star Wars universe. And Ron happened to be by the monitor and not inside the Falcon and he goes, 'Oh that's a great idea, ' and ran in and said, 'George wants us to do this.' So that was pretty cool.
"I just say over and over again that, yes, it was an incredibly hard decision that we had to make, and obviously it was pretty late in the game, which shows we spent a lot of time trying not to have to make that decision".
Lucas final wisdom for his old American Graffiti actor: just enjoy this..
