Star Wars: 96% of franchise's directors and writers are white men

Star Wars: 96% of franchise's directors and writers are white men

45 years later, Lucas and Howard once again collaborated, albeit in a smaller way, on Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Back in 1972, Ron Howard starred in American Graffiti for director George Lucas, a promising young filmmaker who had just come off his acclaimed sci-fi project THX-1138.

This week's episode of the Emmy award-nominated YouTube series The Star Wars Show gives us an even better look at the pre-Solo Millennium Falcon, and it's hard to deny, this thing is absolutely gorgeous when it's fresh out of the wrapper. Never tell me the percentages, ' he said before he added, 'I don't really want to explain it.

What's done is done, and it should be interesting to see what Howard has put together with Solo: A Star Wars Story, which stars Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Thandie Newton, and Joonas Suotamo, when the film hits theaters on May 25.

This had pundits questioning how much of the film Howard has redone - following talk Lord and Miller were axed because they strayed too far from Lucasfilm's vision of the instalment. "I was reluctant, but I also began to feel that I could help".

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

Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Now, it sounds like those fans will be getting their wish...sort of. 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. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and risky criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes. He could revisit these characters, and I think he felt so comfortable, obviously with Ron being there, that it was just fun for him.

"Ron happened to be by the monitor and not inside the Falcon and he goes, 'Oh that's a great idea, ' and ran in and said, 'George wants us to do this, '" Kennedy said.
