Entertainment Weekly has just released a series of brand-new Star Wars: The Last Jedi photos for all of us to feast our eyes upon. The photos don’t necessarily give away any of the plot and are mostly close-ups of people looking moody or shocked. We also get a first look at a few new characters, locations, and behind-the-scenes shots featuring director Rian Johnson at work.

Han Solo Spinoff Directors Quit Over “Creative Differences”

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has announced that Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have officially left the Han Solo spinoff. Kennedy says the grounds for the departure were over “creative differences”.

Here’s what she said in a statement:

“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.”

This is troubling news for the film which began filming in January of 2017. What sort of “creative differences” could cause the duo of directors known for writing The Lego Movie, and 21 Jump Street?

Here’s what Lord and Miller said in a statement:

“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.”

This is a very troubling development. Changing directors after a huge block of the movie has already been filmed can result in some very damaging shifts in tone, and well, direction. How substantial are the differences that would cause two very well respected directors to opt-out of filming what is set to be a huge step for the Star Wars franchise?

It’s possible that we will never know what the Lord-Miller film will have gone. So let’s hope Disney and Lucasfilm find a director that aligns with their vision while also being conducive to the creative mind, and vision of whichever director they decide to bring on.

New Star Wars Content

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS International TV Spot

by Joey Pedras (@joeypedras)

In this clip we see new footage from the new Star Wars film. We get a glimpse into what the Empire has been up to. It doesn’t look good. Despite what happened in Return of the Jedi, it seems the Empire definitely hasn’t crumbled. From this clip, you might even say there is a new “coldness” to it it all. A dark, ruthlessness. We’ll have to wait, and see what this “new” Empire brings, but things are looking a little bleak for our heroes.
