Bryce Dallas Howard has already done so much in her career that it seems like she can take on any project with ease. However, the Jurassic World star revealed that she still got some sound advice from Star Wars creator George Lucas when she had to direct an episode in the upcoming Disney+ series The Mandalorian.

Howard recently opened up to Variety about working on The Mandalorian. Interestingly, she admitted that she got some excellent advice from Lucas when she wrapped filming on Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom which was being shot in the same lot as her father Ron Howard's movie Solo: A Star Wars Story.

"After Jurassic, I stayed and shadowed my dad on Solo," Howard said. "What he just kept saying again and again and again… ‘This is just the most incredible sandbox that you will ever get the opportunity to play in.'"

That's not the only advice Howard got from Lucas although the second one was actually directed to her dad. While working on Willow in 1988, Lucas told Ron to allow storyboard artist David Lowery to "take a crack at it" when it came to "sculpting the narrative."

"That really is the essence of collaboration and the power of collaboration," Howard stated. "The people are just all in, give everything, own it, own the process themselves, and then are like, ‘Your turn.' It is so exhilarating and grounding and it doesn't ever get about the ego, because it's all about Star Wars, which it needs to be."

These are truly awesome advice from Lucas and we're hoping that Howard took them to heart. Although it is still unclear how many episodes she directed in the first season of The Mandalorian, we're already looking forward to seeing what she came up with this November.

The Mandalorian is set to premiere on Disney+ on November 12.
