#5- The Behind-the-Scenes Turmoil

Feature Detail

It’s no secret that production on Solo: A Star Wars Story has been tumultuous at best. After principal photography was nearly complete, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were unceremoniously fired due to a classic case of “creative differences,” and the duo was quickly replaced with Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard. On the surface, that sounds like it should have elicited sighs of relief from early skeptics. However, it also conjures up memories of another recent film to undergo a massive directorial change so late into production – Justice League – and we all know how that turned out. Of course, that’s not to say Solo will be a disaster of that caliber, but behind-the-scenes drama like this doesn’t tend to bode well for the final product.
