George Lucas helped direct a scene in Solo: A Star Wars Story

At graduate school she studied library science, which first led her to a job as an archivist at the Jim Henson Company, but eventually she assumed the role of Lucasfilm's official collections and exhibitions archivist, which basically means she gets to take care of all the props and costumes that have appeared in all the Star Wars movies. Solo was initially directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller until they were let go approximately 75% of the way into principal photography, and Ron Howard, who worked with Lucas on American Graffiti, was brought in to oversee the rest of the main shoot and the reshoots.

I'm curious to see how the tone of Solo: A Star Wars Story eventually turns out, given how comic Lord and Miller seemed to want to take it.

For decades, George Lucas was the driving creative force behind the Star Wars franchise, even when others were sitting in the director's chair.

"He said, 'But, you know, it has, like, the grandeur of 2001, and the realism of those special effects that Kubrick created". The Student Becomes the Master...

In June previous year the two filmmakers announced they were leaving Solo: A Star Wars Story over "creative differences" with Lucasfilm president Kennedy and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan. If Howard's version doesn't go down a treat, we imagine a slew of petitions will make the rounds, much like they're doing for DC Extended Universe release "Justice League".

The film, which was to be initially directed by Marjane Satrapi, he plays a street magician called Ajatashatru. As a major part of the film is set in Franc, it will have a considerably big release there as well.

"Tell them I told you everything you needed to know, and that you can't tell anyone", Fold reportedly said.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, it emerged Howard only took two days to sign on to the project in June a year ago, and four to arrive on set - but he was still nervous to take on such a big task so late in the piece. But much like Obi-Wan Kenobi couldn't help but continue to guide Luke Skywalker from beyond the grave, Lucas couldn't help but offer his assistance to Howard.

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.

It actually is a amusing little bit that will probably get a laugh. It's mentioned briefly in The Empire Strikes Back, though I think the first time I really noticed it in detail was in reading Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn.

"Yeah, I just don't want to do that". These are really great guys and you know, nobody wanted this to happen.
