With the revelation given to us by The Wall Street Journal that Solo: A Star Wars Story is supposedly around 70% Ron Howard’s, we also learn that the film’s original directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller were reportedly given an early screening of the film to decide whether or not to pursue a directing credit. They decided in the end not to pursue the credit, lending credence to the report that the finished film is mostly Ron Howard.
Chris Miller stated:
“In light of the creative differences, we elected to take an executive producer credit.”
At this point, I would imagine Lord and Miller just want the whole thing to be over. While they’re good at what they do, they probably weren’t the right guys for Solo from the beginning. What they wanted and what Lucasfilm wanted were simply too different.
The early reactions for the film have begun to surface online, you can actually read all about them from LRM‘s own Cam Clark here. The word is the movie made it through production struggles and is a lot of fun. It’s looking very likely that Ron Howard did come in to save the day. Not all heroes wear capes.
