“Solo” Team Talk Lucas Involvement, Droids & More

Movie News

 

Back in 1972, young filmmaker George Lucas and young actor Ron Howard teamed up for “American Graffiti” – and the rest is history. Forty-five years later, Howard is helming the upcoming “Solo: A Star Wars Story” spin-off film based on the franchise Lucas created.

Speaking with EW recently, Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy spoke about the day when George Lucas came to the “Solo” set for a quick visit:

“He had intended to just kind of stop by and say hi, and he stayed five hours. There’s even one little moment in a scene that – I can’t tell you what, sorry – but in the scene on the Millennium Falcon where George said, ‘Why doesn’t Han just do this’.

It actually is a funny little bit that will probably get a laugh. And Ron happened to be by the monitor and not inside the Falcon and he goes, ‘Oh that’s a great idea,’ and ran in and said, ‘George wants us to do this.’ So that was pretty cool. I think George felt pretty great about that. He could revisit these characters, and I think he felt so comfortable, obviously with Ron being there, that it was just fun for him.”

Meanwhile, the film’s co-writer Jon Kasdan has spoken about Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s new droid character, L3-37, who marks one of the first droids in the “Star Wars” universe to be self-made – one constantly changing and reorganising her various parts:

“She’s a self-modified droid. The idea is that she’s sort of a mutt, if you will, of various parts of different kinds of droids who has improved upon herself.

Phoebe, herself, is hilarious. The effect that she will appear in is amazing, but she comes through very strongly even with this astounding [CGI], both her humor and her physicality. If you meet Phoebe, she’s one of these people you just fall in love with immediately.”

Kasdan also confirms most of L3-37’s scenes will be alongside Donald Glover’s Lando with whom she has a working relationship that is “very sophisticated and informed by years of working together”.

Solo: A Star Wars Story” opens in cinemas on May 25th 2018.
