Here’s a few interesting tidbits, back when Ron Howard was an actor he starred in “American Graffiti” which was a film George Lucas directed before he made the first Star Wars film. Then later in the 80’s, Ron Howard directed a movie called “Willow” which was another George Lucas creation.
Now Ron will be officially directing a Star Wars film for the first time ever. Even though George Lucas isn’t involved at all, it’s still kind of cool.
I like Ron Howard, he has made some good movies over the years. I think he could pull off a Star Wars movie pretty well, trust me. I think it’s clear that he is a pretty big Star Wars fan like most of us so I’m sure he’s capable of giving us a Star Wars film that all of us would want to see. I’m sure he won’t disappoint us at all.
“Willow” was a great film and that film was kind of like Star Wars a bit. There was a lot of sword fighting in that film so I’m sure Ron is capable of putting on some entertaining as hell light saber battles.
While the cast is already all set, I’m sure Ron will add more actors to the cast. Wouldn’t it be cool if Tom Hanks get some kind of role in the film? Like maybe a cameo appearance? Would be kind of cool. Ron and Tom Hanks made a lot of movies together over the years.
