Ron Howard Takes Over Han Solo Movie

Article: Ron Howard to Take Over as Director of ‘Star Wars’ Han Solo Spinoff - Variety

Ron Howard becomes Kathleen Kennedy's latest sub! His docudramas are great! (“Apollo 13,” “Rush”). His other movies? Not so much. I’m sure that it’s Empress Kathleen Kennedy’s hope that Howard is scared of “strong women” and heels to the Corporate Mistress that is her Lucasfilm (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Disney). :-)

Han Solo Film Losing Its Directors

UPDATED - Read what cost directors Lord and Miller their jobs: ‘Star Wars’ Han Solo Spinoff: Lord & Miller Fired After Clashing With Kathleen Kennedy

I shouldn't be surprised! But, there is trouble on a "Star Wars" prequel AGAIN! Just like the Directors' Chair changes on “Rogue One,” now there will be another director change on another "Star Wars" prequel. This time, the directors of the untitled Han Solo prequel are leaving due to “creative differences.” And, I am guessing that means, they don't want to follow Kathleen Kennedy's orders.

Will the film still turn out well like "Rogue One" did, or what? We will have to wait a year to see.

"Star Wars" Doesn't Have a Plan

Article: Star Wars 8 & 9 Weren’t Mapped Out When Rian Johnson Joined - ScreenRant

I can’t imagine that anyone is surprised! Disney has been making all this up as they go along. Starting with “Force Awakens,” Disney dismissed George Lucas’ own ideas for a new trilogy out of hand. Then, Abrams and Kasdan basically just decided to remake the first “Star Wars.” And, then the next guy, Rian Johnson, made up his own stuff for his part, and others will decide what to do with “Epsisode IX,” etc.

There has been no actual plan for this trilogy, so how can anyone be surprised that there is no plan for what comes after this trilogy?
