Han Solo Directors Exit Film Amid Creative Differences, Thought Han Solo Was Chewbacca
Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have left the new Han Solo prequel movie. Though production began in February, and there is still filming and re-shoots to be competed, the directors have exited the project citing "creative differences."
The term creative differences is usually a cliche term used to avoid controversy, but our IWC sources claim that these creative differences were the directors thinking that Han Solo was Chewbacca the whole time.
Producers first became suspicious when the directing duo famous for The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street acclaim would yell at young star Alden Ehrenreich to get out of the way "like all the time." Ehrenreich, of course, plays a young Han Solo.
When producers finally questioned if the pair knew that Ehrenreich was the star of the movie they asked "Where is all of his fur?"
Disney and Lucasfilm execs now are faced with replacing the team, but looking back this was a long time coming as initial meetings for the untitled Han Solo movie saw Lord and Miller baffled as to how the lead only makes growl noises and never actually speaks.
