Glover, who's playing the young Lando Calrissian, talked about the transition in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter. THR noted that Glover was "uncomfortable elaborating," but acknowledged that the change on set had been dramatic.
Here's Glover's take on the director swap:
"Ron is such a legend, and he knows exactly what the vision for what he is doing is ... [but Phil and Chris] hired us, so you sort of feel like, 'I know I'm not your first choice ...' And you worry about that. To be honest, I don't know exactly what happened. I feel like I was the baby in the divorce, or the youngest child. The oldest child is like, 'We know what's happening, but we are keeping you out of it.' And I'm just like, [Glover's voice rises several octaves] 'Was that scene good? How did you feel?'"
Glover is now used to being a powerhouse behind-the-scenes of his own projects, so he admitted to THR the lack of control in just being "a color in someone else's palette" has been challenging at times.
Ron Howard just showed up in late June, after several months of filming with Lord and Miller. There were no previous rumors of trouble, but after the OG directors were fired, people came out of the woodwork with issues. Now Howard has been keeping fans in the loop by tweeting set photos, with co-star Woody Harrelson telling Uproxx Howard is "such a gentleman and so prepared" and "I think we did land in very capable hands."
The still-untitled Han Solo movie has kept its release date of May 25, 2018.
