Notes & Trivia Edit

  • Star Wars was created by writer, director and executive producer George Lucas. It is based on the multimedia franchise which began with the 1977 feature film Star Wars, later given the full title of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The film was written and directed by George Lucas.
  • Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were originally set to direct Solo: A Star Wars Story back in 2015. By 2017 however, creative differences arose between the directors and studio heads, resulting in their departure from the project. They were replaced by Ron Howard, who completed work on the film. Howard was brought onto the project on June 22nd, 2017. Shooting of the movie under Howard's direction resumed on July 10th, 2017. [1]
  • Phil Lord and Chris Miller expressed their opinions about leaving the film in an article with Vulture.com. "I think in terms of us leaving the project, I think everybody went in with really good intentions and our approach to making the movie was different than theirs. That was a really big gap to bridge, and it proved to be too big". [2]
