Did you ever hear the tragedy of the production of Solo: A Star Wars Story?
I thought not, it’s not a story that Disney would tell you. The troubled production of the least profitable Star Wars film to date is one full of questionable hirings and overdue firings. Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller shot scenes for the film for roughly four months before Kathleen Kennedy stepped in to take them off the project. The duo was replaced by Oscar-winning veteran director Ron Howard.
Howard did what he could to salvage the film, however, it still wasn’t well accepted amongst a good deal of Star Wars fans, (though LRM‘s Kyle Malone LOVED it, if you also enjoyed it please email Kyle as he would love to sing the film’s praises with you). Now one of the writers of the film, Lawrence Kasdan, who wrote the saga’s most beloved chapter in The Empire Strikes Back, has spoken out in reference to the studio, check out what he had to say while speaking with SYFY Wire down below.
“Then the studio blew it, but that’s not unusual.”

Agreed Mr. Kasdan, they did indeed. Ron Howard did the best he could in the time he had to clean up the mess that was made, all things considered, I think Howard did a fantastic job with the film and we all need to talk into account, it could have been much worse. For me, Solo was entertaining enough, sure, it was predictable and granted it’s toward the bottom of my Star Wars list, but worth the $12 at the theater for a single viewing.
