For all the huge Star Wars fans in the world, we were all delighted when it was announced that Disney had plans to not only bring us a new trilogy, but were also going to give us a lot of new spinoff films. We have already had the Star Wars spinoff movie Rogue One and the next we will get to see hitting the big screen, is the upcoming new movie Solo, which focuses on the character Han Solo.
Actress Thandie Newton has a role in Solo, although we do not know exactly who she is playing yet, and the actress has been talking about how the movie all came together. While some fans were worried about the fact that diectors Phil Lord and Chris Miller exited half way through, with Ron Howard taking over, Thandie has insisted that we are all in for a great movie.
Newton shared, "Apart from the initial shock and feeling bad for Lord and Miller not being able to finish their work, their work is everywhere in it. I think 90 per cent of my stuff is with them. And it certainly wasn't about, 'Oh we have to start again and do it all over.' Obviously, it was a surprise. I love Phil and Chris - everybody loves Phil and Chris - they're so brilliant. Ron and the guys were talking to each other. As far as I'm concerned what's on screen, in the end, is going to be an amazing collaboration."
She added, "It's a massive piece. We see so often now there are two directors working on pictures. We already had two with Phil and Chris. Now there's three. With a project like that where it's a vision that's been created over so many years, that's so expansive, I think it's less about things going wrong than getting more help to bring it into the best position it can be in. I really like Ron though, he's very sweet. And the film is dope, it's so cool."
Solo is set to hit the big screen on May 25, 2018 in both the US and the UK.
