Though Solo: A Star Wars Story has Ron Howard's name at the helm, it has been well-documented that the movie was originally set to be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who only had three weeks left with production before they were fired. As it turns out, there is a trailer for the movie featuring only material that Lord and Miller shot, and it was supposed to screen during last year's Star Wars Celebration.
According to Screen Crush, the trailer was pulled out shortly before Lord and Miller were fired. They write:
"Lucasfilm had created a Solo trailer to show at Star Wars Celebration, assembled from the footage from Lord and Miller's shoot. They just chose not to screen it. According to my source, the trailer was cut together and then shelved for exactly the same reasons that Lord and Miller were let go two months later; Lucasfilm wasn't happy with it."
With the movie already out, we should be getting some bigger BTS reveals when it comes to the film. Though Solo has a huge amount of secrecy around it, Lucasfilm has always been able to make some great reveals after enough people have seen the movie.
Besides some footage made by Lord and Miller, I was hoping we could get an idea of the original concept of Dryden Vos who was played by The Wire's Michael K. Williams.
