Whatever big franchise film hits theaters, it’s always fun to see what those in the filmmaking community have to say about the film. When Thor: Ragnarok hit theaters, many fans looked to other Marvel filmmakers to see what your thoughts were on this brand-new take on the character.

With Star Wars: The last Jedi just heading theaters, fans are similarly looking others like J.J. Abrams and Ron Howard to see what their thoughts were on this divisive flick.

Ron Howard, veteran director and Helmer of the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, recently took to Twitter to share that he has just seen the new film in the saga.

Here’s what he had to say:

Of course, there is nothing but praise from a filmmaker who has been in this industry for a long time. Although his words of praise are likely true, as one of the bigger names in the business, he knows that staying positive is the way to success. As a result, we’ll never really know his more constructive feedback. However, given the divisive nature of this movie, I am sure there are plenty of folks out there who will swear off these comments as him playing ball.

Regardless, Ron Howard has quite the mountain to climb himself, with Solo: A Star Wars Story only been a short five or so months from theaters. This is a production that is been mired in controversy ever since Lucasfilm fired previous directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Ever since then, they have been playing catch-up, and as of right now there is no trailer to speak of. We only hope that seeing The Last Jedi inspired him to help take Solo to the level needs to be in order to be successful.
