Lucasfilm has revealed that the company and directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have parted ways from the untitled Han Solo film, in the middle of production, which started in February. The cited reason is creative differences, which The Outhouse can EXXXCLUSIVELY announce is that the directors finally discovered that there were no LEGO characters in the film.

Lucasfilm's statement is below.

The Untitled Han Solo film will move forward with a directorial change.

"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.

The untitled Han Solo film remains scheduled for a May 2018 release.

The Han Solo solo movie is written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan, partially-directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, and stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Woody Harrelson, and Emilia Clarke and is set to release in May 2018.
