Fans are counting down the days until we can experience Disney+ for ourselves, and one big reason we’re so excited has everything to do with The Mandalorian, the first live-action series set in the world of Star Wars. The projects has the likes of Taika Waititi and Dave Filoni offering their skills as directors, but one other talent comes in the form of actress Bryce Dallas Howard, who of course, is the daughter of acclaimed director Ron Howard.
As it turns out, when she was shooting Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the older Howard was shooting Solo: A Star Wars Story, a film that served as a learning experience for Bryce, as she revealed to Variety.
“After Jurassic I stayed and shadowed my dad on Solo. What he just kept saying again and again and again… ‘This is just the most incredible sandbox that you will ever get the opportunity to play in.’”
She then reflected on a lesson her father learned while working on the film Willow. Ron Howard had apparently tried to “sculpt the narrative on set,” and Lucas (a producer on the film), advised that the storyboard artist David Lowery take a crack at it. And thus, the concept of collaboration was emphasized.
“That really is the essence of collaboration and the power of collaboration,” Howard said. “The people are just all in, give everything, own it, own the process themselves, and then are like, ‘Your turn.’ It is so exhilarating and grounding and it doesn’t ever get about the ego, because it’s all about Star Wars, which it needs to be.”
We’ll see how well this advice served her when The Mandalorian starts rolling out onto Disney+ this November!
