    I cannot bring myself to place Solo above Star Wars as a whole.

    I'm more interested in Kasdan specifically writing a Solo spinoff than in him writing a Star Wars film in general, so that's where that comes from.

    I may be the oddball here, but I'm excited because I think Ron Howard is the perfect director for a Star Wars film. He was around in the 70's, he's been making his best films since the 21st century's inception, and he's shown, multiple times, that he's capable of doing the cocky-bunch-of-guys-who-risk-their-lives-for-a-living genre, which is exactly what this needs to be.

    I wonder why Ron Howard stopped with the photos? even though we are now in post production it would be cool to get photos of Ronny in the editing bay editing the movie! I realize we wouldn't get as many as when they were still filming but a once in a while photo or video would be cool during post production...

    If you haven't seen the news, the reason that we haven't heard from Ron Howard, is because his father Rance Howard passed away, I'm sure he's taking a much needed break from post production to heal and spend some time with his family.

    My post was from well before Rance died and by now I am sure Ron Is back to post production. and It has been a good while since Rance Died and I sent a nice Tweet to Ron and his family when they lost Rance.

    On another note I just Tweeted this to Ron Howard we will see,

    "Ron Is there any way you can give us a photo of you editing Solo, kind of a little Christmas and Holliday's gift? we haven't gotten a production Photo in a while".

    remember earlier in the thread I Tweeted to Ron Howard that I was having a bad day and it would make my day to get a photo of you editing the film from the editing bay and the next day he posts a picture of himself editing the film?
    well this was my tweet from earlier today,

    "Ron Is there any way you can give us a photo of you editing Solo, kind of a little Christmas and Holliday's gift? we haven't gotten a production Photo in a while".

    well after I tweet that Tonight some time after I went to bed he posted this,

    and I have to Say the same as Ronny my TLJ Crowd cheered and clapped and laughed through out! Ronny is the master story teller great film maker if he loved TLJ then I wholeheartedly agree with him, I know he works for Disney but I feel this reaction is genuine!

    I'm all for Ron Howard and looking forward to what he brings. I appreciate that LFL has a history of brining burgeoning film makers onboard ala Richard Marquand who had largely only done commercials before ROTJ but was always skeptical about how the Lego movie directors chair got you a SW film.

    I'm still hoping Spielberg gets tapped at some point if for no other reason that see what he brings to the table.

    Totally Agree I loved The Lego movie But Lord and Miller are not great Directors. They are way overrated. I also agree On Spielberg He Is my Ultimate Choice To Direct a Star Wars film I would also love to see Brad Bird and John Favorue Direct a Star Wars film!

    I like Ron Howard for SW: in fact, TPM desperately needed something like him: actually funny, non-irritating comedic sidekick and superior child acting
    and he can also be dark-weird: A Beautiful Mind

    I know some fans aren’t keen on the idea for whatever reason, but I hope Vader appears in Solo. Hopefully Ron made it happen if it wasn’t originally planned. [face_praying]

    I'm all for it - However...I really want a Vader Anthology set directly after the first DS gets destroyed and he lands on Yavin, so I hope they don't over-use him. I'm also torn about Boba Fett being in this as well for the same reasons :vader::boba:

    I’d be okay if it’s a cameo. He’s a character who doesn’t need much time to make an impression.

    From the looks of the trailer Ron Howard might have pulled off something really cool. I knew a Howard/Kasdan combination had potential.
