A source told Wall Street Journal newspaper: "Ron wanted to go back to the spirit of the original trilogy while Phil and Chris were looking forward to something new, more like 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

Director Ron Howard replaced Phil Lord and Christopher Miller midway through the production process and re-shot the sci-fi movie "Solo: A Star Wars Story". Despite having a tight deadline to work, Howard had no problem in reshooting the film, reports list.co.uk.

A source told Wall Street Journal newspaper: "Ron wanted to go back to the spirit of the original trilogy while Phil and Chris were looking forward to something new, more like 'Guardians of the Galaxy'."

The original directors were ousted from the project by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and "Solo: A Star Wars Story" co-writer Lawrence Kasdan, neither of whom were keen on their comedic style, thinking it was out of place in the "Star Wars" franchise. Although Howard had very little time to wrap up work, he only retained around 30 per cent of the original content.
