Adjusted box office: Original

As part of its Solo: A Star Wars Story coverage, Entertainment Weekly has been chatting to director Ron Howard about his work on the Anthology movie, with Howard revealing that his old pal George Lucas paid a visit to the set, and actually ended up contributing to a scene. So, it literally came down to process.

Joining the project in June of past year, Howard reshot a large portion of the film, which meant that filming only wrapped up in October.

The "Star Wars" universe continues to expand and in a few months" time, that will continue with the release of the second standalone movie in the universe, "Solo'. Never tell me the percentages, ' he said before he added, 'I don't really want to explain it. "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". 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. It's rough on everybody and disappointing for everybody, and I've just tried to come in and - of course, Phil and Chris's fingerprints are all over the movie, given how much they put into it and the time they put into it. And he said, 'Yeah, I want to do a big science fiction movie. Their firing "was just one of those unfortunate things", she stated. And I think both Chris and Phil are enormously talented and incredibly amusing. That was obviously a tall task and Howard was able to get some help from a familiar Star Wars face. George Lucas - the original architect of a galaxy far, far away - visited to lend some support to his friend, as Howard had directed Willow in 1988 for Lucasfilm.

It actually is a amusing little bit that will probably get a laugh. And I think both Chris and Phil are enormously talented and incredibly amusing. These are really great guys and you know, nobody wanted this to happen.

"Yeah, I just don't want to do that". If you look up Longcross Studios in Chertsey, where Solo was shot, on the satellite image service and then head a little to the East, you can clearly see Han Solo's spaceship, the Millennium Falcon.

For a guy who's somewhat coy about the importance of his role in Star Wars, and once told actors looking to play a younger version of Solo to it seems like Ford cares a whole lot more than he gives off.
