Donald Glover opens up after Han Solo director switch

Donald Glover opens up after Han Solo director switch

Of getting the role in the forthcoming Han Solo movie and telling his father the news, the actor said: "He just kept saying, 'Woooow'". But the Community alum is a true nerd through and through, admitting in a new interview he didn't have to research a thing about Star Wars.

Howard has been having fun posting non-spoilery glimpses from the set, showing off a behind scenes look at Chewbacca (Joonas Suotamo), Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) seemingly in the Millennium Falcon's cockpit, as well as the charred remains of an old speeder. Miller and Lord were replaced by Ron Howard, the prolific studio filmmaker who won two Oscars for A Beautiful Mind in 2001, though younger folks may know Howard better as the narrator of Arrested Development.

Regarding his ascent in Hollywood, and his desire to shift the focus of film and television towards different perspectives, Glover said, "I know it takes time.and you have to make people feel comfortable".

Ron is such a legend, and he knows exactly what the vision for what he is doing is ... Howard boarded the project earlier this summer following the sudden exit by directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who were reportedly three weeks from completing principal photography on the film, which stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. "How did you feel?'" "Being punk just always felt really good to me and we always looked at Atlanta as a punk show and I feel like the direction I would go with Childish Gambino wouldn't be punk anymore".

What has fueled Glover's rise to blockbuster film star? Harrelson told Uproxx in July, "Ron is great. He's such a gentleman and so prepared".

The untitled Han Solo movie opens May 25th, 2018.
