Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy recently revealed that the creator of Star Wars himself stopped by the set of the young Han Solo movie during its production and offered some helpful advice to director Ron Howard:
“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.
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.”
Good to know that Lucas still keeps a watchful eye over his baby, right?
