Lord and Miller Out on Han Solo Film

Some shocking news tonight as The Hollywood Reporter is saying that Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street) are out on the production of the standalone Han Solo film. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy referred to Lord and Miller as “talented filmmakers” and stated that they’ve “assembled an impressive cast and crew,” but apparently the two of them had some “different creative visions” for the Han Solo film.

However, Variety paints a different picture after speaking with an unnamed source close to the production and claiming that Kennedy wasn’t a fan of the filmmakers style of shooting, or their way of interacting with the cast and crew. With that in mind, they’re stating that Lord and Miller were fired by Lucasfilm, and a new director will be named “soon.” We’ll keep you posted on updates to the Han Solo film.

NOTE: The logo above is not official, but if Disney/Lucasfilm is interested. You know where to find me. 😉

UPDATE: Ron Howard has been confirmed as the new director for the Han Solo spin-off film!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Teaser

The 40th Anniversary of Star Wars is still in full swing at the Disney Star Wars Celebration at Walt Disney World, and… welp. In an expected, but still amazing reveal, director Rian Johnson unveiled the first official teaser trailer for Star Wars [Episode VIII]: The Last Jedi.

The trailer is incredibly gorgeous, and shows several shots of the island we left Rey on at the end of The Force Awakens, as well as Luke Skywalker, a destroyed Kylo Ren helmet, and several flashes of where our characters are, now. Finn is shown possibly still unconscious from the damage at the hands of Kylo Ren, but in some sort of stasis pod, perhaps? Poe is in some serious trouble, in an exploding hangar, and the Force is still being as mysterious as ever. All in all, this is a fucking incredible first trailer for the most anticipated movie of the year, for us all.
