Ron Howard Refuses to Say How Much of Han Solo He Directed

Solo A Star Wars Story hit the big screen this year

"What [Ford] did so beautifully for Alden was he talked a lot about what he remembered when he first read Star Wars, and what George had done with Han".

"He told me just trust my instincts, you know?"

We know that production for Solo: A Star Wars Story was extended for a few extra months and that Michael K. Williams' had to be replaced by Paul Bettany because he could not make it back for his reshoots, which leads many to believe that Ron Howard reshot quite a bit of the movie. So, it's not like there's anything I can really add to it because the last thing I want to do is [reopen a wound].

"There comes a point where there's only so much you can do", she said, "and then you have to take a different course and that's where we ended up ... I think that was really, really helpful to him".

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Howard has spoken about the situation, revealing that he was reluctant to take on directing duties, and confirming that much of Lord and Miller's sensibilities remain present in the movie. Though Kennedy did not share any further details about the scene, she expects fans to get a laugh out of it. One wonders if Howard merely means that the actors' character prep with the 22 Jump Street directors is present, as there was certainly not enough time for the new boss - who entered the picture just before Lord & Miller were set to wrap principal photography - to remold each performance as he saw fit.

It's going to be very interesting to see what "Solo" looks like when everybody's parts have all been stitched together, and whether or not audiences will be able to pick the movie apart and make out which scenes belong to Howard, and which are from Lord and Miller.

"I think George felt pretty great about that", Kennedy said.

One thing everyone suspects about Solo is that we'll finally get to see young Han Solo win the Millennium Falcon from young Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover.) That's an exciting prospect partly because I'm excited to see how the gambling game sabacc works. "But when I learned that this change was happening, it just came in a moment where I was working on lots of new projects for Imagine [the film and TV production company], and I had not planned to direct anything past year", he explains.
