Han Solo: Ron Howard Commemorates First Day On Set By Sharing Set Photo

A lot of eyes are directed at Ron Howard for now because he's in the center of this whole Lucasfilm director fiasco, and Howard has decided to share an image from the first scene he shot for the movie. Spoiler Alert: It doesn't really reveal anything.

Here's Howard's post:

It looks like production pushed through early because it was said that it would resume sometime in July. I guess Howard already has a clear sense of what he wants to shoot already, and it's best they get started in order not to waste anymore time.


Before Lord and Miller were fired, principal photography only had three weeks remaining. With only five weeks prepared for any reshoots, Howard hopefully has everything planned out right so he can shoot the rest of the movie properly.

Though initially bummed out at the news, I now understand why Lucasfilm had decided to fire Lord and Miller from the project. With the duo refusing to compromise, and Lucasfilm apparently trying to work with them, I guess there was just no other way around it. Lawrence Kasdan was going to have the movie done his way.

Hopefully we get more good news from the Han Solo set from now on.

Han Solo: A Star Wars Story is set to come out May 25, 2018.
