The Han Solo Movie Has Lost Its Directors!

Star Wars fans watched Han Solo meet a nasty end in 2015’s The Force Awakens, but they’ll soon be reunited with the cocky smuggler next year in his own movie. The second Star Wars Anthology spinoff will show what Han was up to in his younger years, and since 2015, 21 Jump Street duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller have been attached as the directors. However, in the middle of principal photography, the news just dropped that Miller and Lord are no longer directing the blockbuster set in a galaxy far, far away.


Lucasfilm announced today that Phil Lord and Chris Miller have departed the Han Solo movie. The studio’s president, Kathleen Kennedy, stated that there were “different creative visions” for the movie, and thus the two sides have parted ways. A new director will be announced soon. Lord and Miller also provided their own statement, saying:

Unfortunately, our vision and process weren’t aligned with our on this project. We normally aren’t fans of the phrase ‘creative differences’ but for once this cliché is true. We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew

The Han Solo movie is still expected to blast its way into theaters in May 2018.
