The Elven Padawan #3: “Zero Hour” review, part 2

Shay and her guest Evie finish up their review of the Star Wars: Rebels season 3 finale, “Zero Hour”.
First though, there’s some Star Wars news to cover, and Shay reads some comments from listeners.
Then we get into the rest of that review. We continue our obsessions over Grand Admiral Thrawn and Captain Syndulla, talk about Kallus joining the Rebellion, and who will die before it’s all over.

Han Solo movie to change directors

A new announcement from Lucasfilm has revealed that the as-of-yet untitled Han Solo anthology film will be undergoing a “directorial change.”

From the announcement on the Star Wars official website:

“Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are talented filmmakers who have assembled an incredible cast and crew, but it’s become clear that we had different creative visions on this film, and we’ve decided to part ways. A new director will be announced soon,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm.

“Unfortunately, our vision and process weren’t aligned with our partners on this project. We normally aren’t fans of the phrase ‘creative differences’ but for once this cliché is true. We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew,” stated Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.

So far the exact reason for this change is unknown.

The Han Solo movie is still set for release in May 2018.

Update 6/22/17

A new director has been announced for the Han Solo anthology film: Ron Howard

“At Lucasfilm, we believe the highest goal of each film is to delight, carrying forward the spirit of the saga that George Lucas began forty years ago,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “With that in mind, we’re thrilled to announce that Ron Howard will step in to direct the untitled Han Solo film. We have a wonderful script, an incredible cast and crew, and the absolute commitment to make a great movie. Filming will resume the 10th of July.”
