Yesterday we heard the shocking news that directing duo, Lord and Miller were dropped by Lucasfilm over a creative dispute. The problem? The film is already 5 months into production. Yep - not a good look. So far they are keeping with their original release date of May, 2018.
Thankfully it's been confirmed that Ron Howard will take over - the studio's first choice. Star Wars' fans, rejoice! We can't wait for the spin-off film.
