Ron Howard as a director
Previously, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the directors of ’21 Jump Street’ and ‘The Lego Movie’ were involved in the shooting.
Their unconventional version in a comedic western style with improvising dialogues was the reason they were fired in June.
Then Ron Howard, the accomplished director of ‘Apollo 13,’ ‘A Beautiful Mind,’ and ‘Rush,’ among others, was brought in to save the film.
Solo to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival
Solo: A Star Wars Story will premiere at the international cinema event on May 15, just 10 days before debuting worldwide on May 25.
Hey, young Han Solo!
The 25-year-old Alden Ehrenreich starring as a young and Millennium Falcon captain, Han Solo.
The creators were looking for the male actor between 16 and 35, but it wasn’t necessary as Alden Ehrenreich was actually the very first person interviewed by the directors.
Of course, he’s not as world-wide popular as his co-stars, but he is recognized by many fans of the series. Before that, Alden Ehrenreich took part in Coen Brothers’ ‘Hail, Caesar!’

Also, the first cast photo from the new spin-off Star Wars film shows us Woody Harrelson, who plays the criminal mentor Tobias Beckett. The character is based on Long John Silver from Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson.
Emilia Clarke, famous for her amazing role of Daenerys in The Game of the Thrones, is also taking part in the new movie. Her character is still a mystery for fans, but some say she is Ray’s mother (from The Last Jedi episode).
Emilia Clarke said about her character, “She has a couple of guises, but essentially she is just fighting to stay alive. If you’ve got a really glamorous lady in a really sordid environment, you kind of know the glamour is hiding a few rough roads.”
Clarke also commented on their relationship with Han Solo, saying, “They grew up as comrades, essentially. They grew up as pals, as partners in crime. There is obviously the romantic side of things. But they grew up together. So they were kids together.”
