    It's a very small thing, but it's cool to know George did that!

    Sources close to the project say that George's direction was that Han should be "faster and more intense". :D

    Glad Lucas got involved. And Kasdan was part of the screenwriting, no?

    Behind-the-scenes turmoil for the Star Wars saga began last summer with the surprise announcement that Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who were directing the Han Solo spin-off film, were departing the project. Fans were left wondering what caused the departure, with neither the filmmakers nor Lucasfilm giving concrete reasons for the split, with fans having to speculate on their own. With Solo: A Star Wars Story landing in theaters in only a few months, Lucasfilmpresident Kathleen Kennedy finally shed light on the situation.

    “I think these guys are hilarious, but they come from a background of animation and sketch comedy and when you are making these movies you can do that and there’s plenty of room for improvisation, we do that all the time," Kennedy shared with Entertainment Weekly. "But it has to be inside of a highly structured process or you can’t get the work done and you can’t move the armies of people to anticipate and have things ready. So, it literally came down to process. Just getting it done.”

    Yeah, it was a good read. I kind of thought he would be on board fully with Howard, seeing as they're old friends.

    Very much enjoyed reading that George had a good time on set and got to contribute. Here's to hoping not someday he comes back and makes his own film again, even if it's unlikely!

    Controversial theory: What if this movie is partially narrated by Han? Almost sounds that way in the trailer. Would y’all be okay with that if it was the case?

    Even if that speech of his does make it to the final cut I was wondering who he could be addressing? Not Qi'ra. Beckett maybe? Chewie?

    Nice!! Are they out in the wild?

    I tried getting a copy of the EW mag today but no one around here has it on the stands yet even though EW.com says it should be.

    I think that’s a cool idea if it’s done well.

    With that poster, I'm imagining the Star Wars theme being played by harmonica or a banjo. :p

    Yep, I love that they're really going for that western iconography.
