solo deleted scenes

Solo: A Star Wars Story fills in the gaps of the illustrious smuggler’s life before he meets up with Luke and Leia for a galaxy-saving quest. But there are still a fair few holes in Han Solo’s story that can only be filled by a few deleted scenes.

The Star Wars standalone film had a notoriously troubled production, which resulted in many scenes being left on the cutting room floor. But screenwriters Jonathan and Lawrence Kasdan and the cast of Solo: A Star Wars Story are here to tease those scenes — which may or may not end up on the Solo Blu-ray release.

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.
