Ron Howard, the director of Solo: A Star Wars Story, has revealed that he would be up for directing another Star Wars movie.
While Solo: A Star Wars Story didn’t perform anywhere near expectations at the global box office, those that did see it found a lot to love and a lot of the credit must go to Ron Howard, who came aboard as director during a troublesome production.
But has Howard’s experience with Solo soured his opinion on the Star Wars franchise? No, not at all. In fact, Howard told Metro that he would be open to directing another but says the story must be right:
“I had a great experience with that. It would depend entirely on the story. My daughter Bryce Dallas Howard is thrilled. She’s been announced to be directing one of the new episodes of the series headed by Jon Favreau. She’s having a great experience. So I’m kind of living through it again through her. It’s just a creative, inspired group of movie lovers who make those projects.”
The series Howard is referring to is, of course, The Mandalorian – a project many fans will be having their eye on to see how Lucasfilm film responds after Solo.
Would you like to see Howard direct another Star Wars film? Perhaps this time from the beginning of production and shepherding the whole thing through to the end?
