The upcoming Star Wars’ Han Solo spinoff won’t be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, as confirmed by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy on Tuesday.
“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.”
Lord and Miller have also released a statement:
“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.”
The release date for the upcoming movie hasn’t changed and is still May 25, 2018.
