George Lucas Helped Direct A Scene In SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY

Next up is the latest stand-alone story, Solo, starring Alden Ehrenreich as young Han Solo, directed by Ron Howard and written by veteran Star Wars scribe Lawrence Kasdan and son Jon. But Lucas stuck around for five hours, chatting with Howard-who's been friends with Lucas since the 1970s-and ended up suggesting a small tweak for a key Han Solo moment in the Falcon's cockpit. In the end, we shouldn't really be able to tell the difference anyway. Ever since the first movie was a smash more than 40 years ago, people just can't seem to get enough of the space adventure.

Though the actual line is "Never tell me the odds", Howard's point is clear.

"Harrison's a very thoughtful actor and an artist, and I wanted to know what he learned about the character" said Howard. Yeah, I just don't want to do that. I hope fans won't even think about how the movie was made. I could understand why you'd ask, and some might even be curious, but look, everybody who has been involved in this has done nothing but love what this movie could be, and that's been the vibe around it.

Just one day after the world glimpsed Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke in the first full trailer for this summer's Solo: A Star Wars Story, Disney announced on Tuesday that Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will write and produce a new series of Star Wars films. Ultimately, the director says that he took on the position because he felt that he could help out the project. The film was close to completion under directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

In addition to having elements of the older Flash Gordon films and comics, Lucas told Howard he wanted to make a film with "the grandeur of 2001, and the realism of those special effects that Kubrick created..." He had this to say. "But when I learned that this change was happening, it just came in a moment where I was working on lots of new projects for Imagine, and I had not planned to direct anything a year ago". "So then this came my way. I was reluctant, but I also began to feel that I could help".

Now, a different creative force is taking a stab at the Star Wars universe.

The Benioff and Weiss movies will be completely separate from the central Skywalker Saga, which is set to conclude with 2019's Episode IX, as well as the new trilogy of Star Wars-themed films that The Last Jedi writer-director Rian Johnson is crafting.
