Well that didn’t take long!  Shortly (a day) after the announcement that Lord and Miller were leaving the Han Solo production, Lucasfilm has announced a new director to helm the project.  That new director is Ron Howard!

You may know him best as Opie Taylor off of the Andy Griffith Show, or as Richie Cunningham in Happy Days, however he has had one fine career as a director.  Notable movies under his belt include Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind (winner of four Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director), The Da Vinci Code, and of course Willow!

Lucasfilm is pleased to announce that Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ron Howard has been named director of the untitled Han Solo film.

“At Lucasfilm, we believe the highest goal of each film is to delight, carrying forward the spirit of the saga that George Lucas began forty years ago,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “With that in mind, we’re thrilled to announce that Ron Howard will step in to direct the untitled Han Solo film. We have a wonderful script, an incredible cast and crew, and the absolute commitment to make a great movie. Filming will resume the 10th of July.”

Of course the biggest question surrounding this announcement should be, what sort of cameo will Clint Howard have in this film.

Filming on the unfinished project will resume on July 10 with more confirmation that it will retain its May 25, 2018 release date.

On a side note, who wants to bet this film gets moved back to December 2018?

Is this our first look at Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo? Twitter user Mike DeRose courtesy of Making Star Wars, shared a picture of a “movie loyalty cup” he received at Harkins Theater in Arizona. The cup features loads of upcoming Disney projects, but what we are concerned with is the young Han Solo standing side-by-side with Chewbacca. You can also see the Millennium Falcon in the background, just beyond Chewie and Gamora…

Emilia Clarke’s Character’s Name Revealed for Han Solo Film

Published

Emilia Clarke

In a recent Vanity Fair interview with actor Michael K. Williams, Emilia Clarke’s character’s name for the Han Solo filmed was revealed.  Earlier this week, we learned that Michael K. Williams’ character from the Han Solo film had been cut from Ron Howard’s version of it.  In a recent interview with the actor, he revealed (accidentally or not), the name of Emilia Clarke’s character, which is “Kira”.

Williams had already filmed all of his scenes as a new character to the universe—“a link between Han Solo and Emilia’s character, Kira”—when Lucasfilm suddenly announced in June that it was replacing directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller with Ron Howard. The shake-up meant that Williams would need to re-shoot his scenes so that the anticipated spin-off could still meet its 2018 release date.

If you recall, Kira was the initial name for Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, via various leaks on the set.  This is most likely another case of Lucasfilm, recycling ideas from film to film.

While this isn’t much, it is nice to know that as we get closer to the May 25, release date, we are going to know more and more about this film, that is covered in a thick veil of secrecy.
