Ron Howard re-shot majority of Solo: A Star Wars Story
The filmmaker was roped in by Lucas films to replace Phil Lord and Christopher Miller
Director Ron Howard replaced Phil Lord and Christopher Miller midway through the production process and re-shot the sci-fi film Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Despite having a tight deadline to work, the filmmaker had no problems in reshooting the film. Reportedly, Howard wanted to go back to the spirit of the original trilogy, while Lord and Miller were looking forward to something new, more like Guardians of the Galaxy.
The original directors were removed from the project by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and Solo: A Star Wars Story co-writer Lawrence Kasdan, neither of whom were keen on their comedic style, thinking it was out of place in the Star Wars franchise.
Although Howard had very little time to wrap up work, he only retained around 30 per cent of the original content.
