Emilia Clarke Says Ron Howard Saved ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’

Solo Star Wars StoryIn a recent interview, actress Emilia Clarke implied that director Ron Howard saved Solo: A Star Wars Story.

During the interview the actress talked about some of the frustrations she had while working with former Solo: A Star Wars Story directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller:

I’m not gonna lie. I struggled with Qi’ra quite a lot. I was like: ‘Y’all need to stop telling me that she’s “film noir,” because that ain’t a note.’

She then went on to praise Howard’s ability to talk about the character and how he had a way of making every actor on set feel special:

He even feigned enthusiasm! I know for a fact he had that discussion with everybody. I think we all came to set feeling like his favorite. It makes for a really happy load of actors, with our egos.

This has been one of many stories to pop up regarding the change in directors in recent weeks. As we all know, the original directors of the film, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, were fired from the project and replaced by veteran director Ron Howard after principal photography concluded. The actual reasoning behind the firing remains unclear but many of the people involved with the project seem to believe it was the right choice.

Every ‘Star Wars’ Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

Previous1 of 11

Star Wars logoStar Wars was released in 1977 and has become one of the biggest film franchises in the history of cinema. Han Solo. Luke Skywalker. Princess Leia. Darth Vader. These characters have become synonymous with pop culture around the world.

Star Wars has transcended generations but when Revenge of the Sith was released in 2005, many fans assumed that this galaxy far far away had come to a close and we wouldn’t be seeing any new films. It wasn’t until 2012 that everything changed. On October 30, 2012, Disney announced a deal to purchase Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion. Since that purchase, Disney has brought Star Wars back to the main folds of pop culture with The Force Awakens and even Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. 

In honor of The Last Jedi being released in theaters, Heroic Hollywood is ranking every Star Wars film from worst to best.
