Solo: A Star Wars Story - Ron Howard and George Lucas

This weekend, Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters and fans will finally get to see if Ron Howard was able to save the once troubled production that removed directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller from the director’s chair. Most of the movie ended up being reshot by Howard, but there’s one small moment that didn’t come from the filmmaker. Instead, it was a contribution from George Lucas.

As we heard previously, George Lucas visited the set of Solo: A Star Wars Story after Ron Howard took over the project. Howard has a long professional relationship and friendship with Lucas after starring in the director’s coming of age flick American Graffiti, made just before he went on to create Star Wars. And Solo finally allowed them to collaborate, albeit briefly, in a galaxy far, far away.
