Ridley Scott star wars

Ridley Scott is 80 years old and DGAF about your favorite science-fiction franchise.

Having helmed several iconic sci-fi franchises of his own (and still going strong), Scott is probably one of the few major directors in Hollywood today who doesn’t get all googly-eyed when faced with the all-powerful Star Wars. And don’t ask him if he’d want to direct a Star Wars film either — it’s the last thing that both he and Disney would want to deal with.

han solo death

The big debate around Han Solo may no longer be “did he shoot first?” but “was he supposed to die at first?”

The death of Harrison Ford‘s iconic sci-fi character reverberated throughout the Star Wars universe, affecting characters both new and old in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But the Han Solo death scene might not have happened if it was up to Disney. Because not only did killing Han Solo impact on his newfound mentee Rey (Daisy Ridley), his ex-wife Leia (Carrie Fisher), and his own son who did the deed Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), it also threatened to impact the Disney brand as well.

The Empire Strikes Back - Han Solo

Even though Ron Howard has been officially announced as the replacement director for Lucasfilm’s forthcoming Han Solo spin-off, many are still curious about what happened behind the scenes on the next installment in the A Star Wars Story series of films that began with Rogue One.

The official story was that the directing style of Phil Lord & Chris Miller clashed with what Kathleen Kennedy and Lawrence Kasdan had expected them to do, and their disagreement over the direction of the movie finally came to a head that resulted in their termination with three weeks left in production. But since then, some more details have come to the surface that shed some more light on the situation.

When it comes to stories that dig into the reasoning that saw the original Han Solo directors fired, it all still boils down to creative differences between Lord & Miller and Lucasfilm, but it’s the specifics that are rather interesting, though admittedly also a little gossipy. It includes talk of an acting coach, a reference to Ace Ventura and more.

Find out the latest on this situation that saw the original Han Solo directors fired. Read More »
