Director, Ron Howard Say That George Lucas Praised Solo: A Star Wars Story


We can all confidently watch Solo: A Star Wars Story as Ron Howard said that George Lucas has a good feeling about the latest movie.

In a recent interview, Howard said that Lucas was extremely supportive of this movie and its take and exploration on a young Han Solo.

“He doesn’t get down in the weeds on the movies anymore,” Howard had said.

“He did come by and visit the set, which is a pretty rare thing, but he did it as a show of support which was really cool. And he was really complimentary. But he was also really confident when I came in that I would get the feel of it and understand how to maximize the entertainment value of these characters and this world.”

Lucasfilm was bought by Disney in the year, 2012, but George Lucas had said that Solo was in works for quite a while. He had brought the Star Wars scribe, Lawrence Kasdan to this movie:

“George and [Kathleen Kennedy] had decided that, as the company went on without George, and Kathy would run it, that part of what they were going to do was continue the Star Wars movies, and they had an idea for a bunch of ’em,” Kasdan had said.

“When they called me up there, I said, ‘I don’t know if I’m up for a fourth Star Wars movie,’ and they said, ‘Well, what if it was Han?’
