    It was concerning that the original directors left the project, but I have a good feeling about Ron Howard stepping in.

    maybe they can have all the characters sing through the whole movie like all the other horrible movies from Disney

  • SID

    Wow. The first REAL established director in this franchise since the 80’s. If its half as good as WILLOW fans will be in for a treat. If its a quarter good as his best films then everyone is going to worship him back to the top of the Hollywood gravy train.

    I don’t find your blasphemic comments about Jesus Christ ammusing… Why don’t you grow up and actually post comments regarding Star Wars related news. Oh and why don’t you also put a filter on your comments as far as profanity goes… Please keep your personal views of God to yourself and for the sake of the few Christians out here keep your mocking of God in your own personal life. Jesus Christ is Lord and He is no longer on the cross but knocking at the doors of all your hearts. But remember He is holy and mockery of Him is something you have to deal with.

    ya, thats an unexpected choice. how much money did they offer him to ”fix” this movie. trying to save ultra embarassment from it or what ? ha

  • Rykrof_Enloe

    Sounds like a good choice with Howard. Still, I can’t help but have very low expecatations for this film, which is sad because it’s the first Star Wars movie that I haven’t been excited about and it all starts with the casting choice of the lead actor. Hopefully we are pleasantly surprised.

      Out of curiosity, who would you like to have seen as Han?

  • LaurenceQuint

    While not exactly a daring choice, Howard is a competent journeyman and that’s probably what appealed to them to get this thing (back?) on track.

    I still remain 98% disinterested in a Young Han movie, but whatever….

  • Paulskywalker

    Apparently the other directors wanted to turn it into a bit of a comedy, but Kennedy and Lucasfilm had been picturing a western style heist movie

  • Fiery Little One

    This is an interesting, and unexpected, development.

  • Rob Redahl

    Does this mean his brother Clint is going to have a bit part in it?

  • If Christ himself climbed down off the cross to direct with the promise of cinematic perfection, people would still bitch about it.

      Human nature!

      I’m liking the idea of an Opie Cunningham directed SW movie.

    • Brian Beck

      Ha Ha Ha LOL! sad but true.

    • LaurenceQuint

      has Christ ever directed a big budget tentpole like this before? Nope!

      So thank god we dodged that bullet.
