Han Solo: Donald Glover Said The Change In Directors Made Him Feel Like A Child In A Divorce

A lot of people were shocked when Lucasfilm fired Phil Lord and Chris Miller from Han Solo and had Ron Howard taking over the director's chair. What we didn't know was that the actors were going through the same type of confusion in the middle of it all.

Talking to THR, Lando actor Donald Glover explains:

"To be honest, I don't know exactly what happened… I feel like I was the baby in the divorce, or the youngest child. The oldest child is like, 'We know what's happening, but we are keeping you out of it.' And I'm just like, [Glover's voice rises several octaves] 'Was that scene good? How did you feel?'


Fans who paid attention to the news will know that Lord and Miller were fired from the project due to the direction they were taking the movie which was more on comedy and improvisation. The directing duo was said to be uncompromising when it came to changes, and they were fired on the grounds of creative differences.

With Ron Howard on the helm, Glover is still pretty confident with the project, but he does admit that it was Lord and Miller who hired him for the job. He says:

"Ron [Howard] is such a legend, and he knows exactly what the vision for what he is doing is … [but Phil and Chris] hired us, so you sort of feel like, 'I know I'm not your first choice …' And you worry about that."

So far, a lot of fans are happy to see Glover in the film, and they're all waiting on what his version of Lando will be doing in the movie.

Han Solo: A Star Wars Story comes out May 25, 2018.
