Thandie Newton Thinks Solo: A Star Wars Story Still A Good Movie Despite Director Switch

Phew. We were worried.

Solo: A Star Wars Story actress Thandie Newton thinks the film will be awesome, despite having a change of directors in the middle of production.

With a project like that where it's a vision that's been created over so many years, that's so expansive, I think it's less about things going wrong than getting more help to bring it into the best position it can be in. I really like Ron though, he's very sweet. And [the film is] dope; it's so cool!

Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller left the production after butting heads with Lucasfilm CEO Kathleen Kennedy. Director Ron Howard took over shortly after.

Apart from the initial shock and feeling bad for [Lord and Miller] not being able to finish their work, their work is everywhere in it," says the actress, who last month completed some additional shooting in London on the film. "Ninety percent of my stuff is with them. And it certainly wasn't about, 'Oh we have to start again and do it all over.'

Solo: A Star Wars Story is set to release May 25, 2018
