New reports suggest Solo: A Star Wars Story director Ron Howard is open to returning to the galaxy to direct more Star Wars franchise films. Howard was roped in to handle Solo: A Star Wars Story after directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord were fired post two months of filming over creative differences. He handled two more months of production shortly after.
Although the film did not perform quite well at the box office, raking in just around $392 million worldwide, there are still plenty of Star Wars films in development. J.J. Abrams is currently filming Star Wars: Episode IX, Rian Johnson is developing a whole new Star Wars trilogy and on top of it David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are also creating another Star Wars trilogy.
During a recent interview with Metro, Howard teased that he might be up for another Star Wars film, but, it will all depend on the film’s story.
“I had a great experience with that,” the director said about Solo: A Star Wars Story. “It would depend entirely on the story“.
Howard also spoke about his daughter, Jurassic World fame actress Bryce Dallas Howard, who is directing an episode of Favreau’s The Mandalorian.
“My daughter Bryce [Dallas Howard] is thrilled,” Howard said. “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.”
Meanwhile, Howard will return as a producer for the second season of the television series Mars, which hopes to create a realistic depiction of the first human colonies on the Red Planet. Season two of the series begins on 11 November.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is currently available on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD.
