Well. Here are the facts folks. Following director Ron Howard's recent reshoots of a rumored more than 80 percent of original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller's Solo: A Star Wars Story. It now appears the film, which is only four months away from its highly anticipated May release date will now undergo even more reshoots towards the end of January and early February.
The report comes via our good friends over at Screenrant, who've revealed that Reddit user Hufflepuffins (who's previously reported correct information) posted these revelations to Reddit earlier this morning. While some sites will probably have fans freaking out about this report. We're here to calm everyone down a notch.
Now these new re-shoots while at first glance may seem concerning. However, we must all take into account the fact that almost every big blockbuster film made today, now plans for a couple weeks of reshoots a few months before the films release.
Now, since earlier reports have suggested that director Ron Howard has essentially remade the entire Han Solo film. It seems obvious that Lucasfilm and Howard upon his hiring and planning out his own new production of Solo, would also a lot some budget and time for extended reshoots following Howard's own principle photography.
Its now extremely clear that Disney, Lucasfilm, and Ron Howard have completely scrapped all of Phil Lord and Chris Miller's original four months of photography. So the film actually didn't start its "real production" until Howard came aboard. So these are really the only reshoots, because Howards' "reshoots" in reality are now the only photography being used. So these few weeks of reshoots are in other words, completely normal.
