With Ron Howard taking over Solo: A Star Wars Story so late into production, a lot of people were convinced that the movie was going to be delayed. The good news is, the film is going according to schedule, and editing is finally finished.
Ron Howard gives us an update:
Before Howard took over, it was said that directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller had already gone through more than half of principal photography. They were then fired by Lucasfilm due to creative differences, but they are still credited as executive producers for the film.
Though a lot of fans were worried that marketing for Solo started a bit late, it seemed that the marketing department at Lucasfilm was trying their best to optimize interest for both Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Solo. With TLJ now out of the way, we should expect some more solid marketing for the Solo film in the upcoming months until release.
Hopefully Ron Howard has come up with a film that both Lucasfilm and the fans will be happy with. Though I'm sure the movie is going to have its haters, I'm confident that a good chunk of the fanbase will be happy with what they get.
Solo: A Star Wars Story comes out May 25.
