Your bad feeling about this has to be tempered with the fact that creative minds at Lucasfilm Ltd. know what they are doing. Today it was announced that Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have stepped away from untitled Han Solo film. Lucasfilm Ltd. issued the following statement on StarWars.com:

Press Release: “Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are talented filmmakers who have assembled an incredible cast and crew, but it’s become clear that we had different creative visions on this film, and we’ve decided to part ways. A new director will be announced soon,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm.

“Unfortunately, our vision and process weren’t aligned with our partners on this project. We normally aren’t fans of the phrase ‘creative differences’ but for once this cliché is true. We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew,” stated Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.

The untitled Han Solo film remains scheduled for a May 2018 release (seen here on Star Wars.com).

Who will take over the reins for the film? If Kathleen Kennedy is going to make an “announcement soon”, how long ago did this happen? If “Always in motion is the future”, we’ll just have to wait and see.
