Ron Howard Doesn’t Believe The Rumors About The Star Wars Stand-Alone Films

Lately we have all heard rumors of issues over at Lucasfilm. One being a rumor that was reported by many outlets that a hold had been put on all Star Wars stand-alone films. A day or so later, Lucasfilm themselves debunked that idea saying that wasn’t the case. As far as what’s really going on, we might not know for sure for quite some time.

Ron Howard, who actually directed one of the Star Wars stand-alone films, in Solo: A Star Wars Story, says he doesn’t believe the rumors about the anthology films. In speaking with TMZ, Howard politely corrected a misinformed TMZ reporter.

“I don’t think that’s entirely accurate. I think that was reported, but I don’t think that’s exactly right. Look, everybody at Disney and Lucasfilm really cares about the fans … I think it’s an ongoing process of discovering what it can be, and what it can all add up to. And, so, it’s really a process. I like the fact, that, personally, they take some chances, take some risks, and see how people respond to it.”

While Lucasfilm has came out and said that Star Wars anthology films have not been put on hold, it’s still possible there is some truth to the rumor. The anthology films being put on hold isn’t the only rumor we have heard about Lucasfilm lately. It was also reported that Kathleen Kennedy wants out, but that Disney can’t find someone who wants to take the job. You can read all about that from Jammer here.
