Bob Iger Evades Question About Han Solo Film Being Delayed

Since Lucasfilm announced that the untitled Han Solo film will move on without directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, fans have been wondering if the release date for the standalone Star Wars film would be delayed. After they left the project or fired (depending on who you're asking), Lucasfilm hired Ron Howard as director to complete the film. Production is now on hiatus while Howard reviews what Phil and Lord filmed but it's expected to resume on July 10.

TMZ caught up with Disney Chairman Bob Iger at E Baldi in Beverly Hills, and when he was asked if the Han Solo film will be delayed, he just said, "I'm not going to say." Iger sounds optimistic, however. When asked if the film is doomed, he said, "We have a great cast, a great script, and a great director. It's going to be fine"

You can watch the TMZ's video below:

The untitled Han Solo movie is set to release in theaters on May 25, 2018, but that will likely be pushed back. We'll just have to wait for the official confirmation. The film stars Alden Ehrenreich (Hail Caesar!) as Han Solo, Donald Glover (Atlanta) as Lando Calrissian, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones),Woody Harrelson (True Detective) as Beckett, Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Thandie Newton (Westworld), and Michael K. Williams (The Wire).
