Recently, at the Vulture Film Festival, the directing duo hosted a panel, and questions on the topic of the Han Solo spinoff came up (obviously). Here is their response regarding filming, and their termination from the project:

The duo were appearing at the Vulture Festival in L.A to talk about their MTV animated series Clone High. The outlet spoke about their experience of being fired from the Star Wars young Han Solo movie and getting replaced by Howard.
Here’s what they had to say.
“The experience of shooting the movie was wonderful,” Lord said. “We had the most incredible cast and crew and collaborators. I think in terms of us leaving the project, I think everybody went in with really good intentions and our approach to making the movie was different than theirs. That
“The experience of shooting the movie was wonderful,” Lord said to the crowd at Vulture Festival Sunday. “In terms of us leaving the project, everyone went in with really good intentions and our approach was really different from theirs… The gap was too big.”
Added Lord, “Sometimes people break up and it’s sad. We learned a lot from our collaborators, we’re really proud of our work and wish everyone with the best.”
The genre has grown so much since we entered the current century, in fact, that it can be easy to forget the Academy Awards didn’t even recognize animation until 2001. As few as three movies were nominated per year until 2010, but since then animation’s increased prominence has been reflected in the race’s competitiveness. Not every worthy movie could make the cut on either the awards circuit or this list, sadly, but rest assured that “The Red Turtle,” “Kubo and the Two Strings,” and “Ernest and Celestine,” to name just a few,
For instance, Star Wars fans were placed on red alert some months ago when Harrelson let slip that he had landed the role of Garris Shrike, a known criminal and one of the biggest influences on Han’s journey from adolescence to adulthood. The two-time Oscar nominee has since walked back those comments, leaving fans to deduce that he’s actually attached to the part of Beckett, a known criminal and one of the biggest influ–well, you get the drift.
And though there’s still a tremendous amount of secrecy swirling around Solo: A Star Wars Story, Woody Harrelson touched base on Lucasfilm’s anthology flick in a new
But writers write, and before long, Weir found himself back at the computer screen, ready to dive into another science-fiction yarn. And he did so without any expectations hanging over his head.
“I didn’t set out to top The Martian,” Weir tells Et. “A success like that is something a writer will get once in his whole career, if he’s lucky. I know that there’s a good chance that I could write 20 more books and people will say The Martian is the one

Forty years ago, there was a seismic shift in the film industry, when Bernard Loomis of Kenner Toys decided that Star Wars was ‘toyetic.’ That shift, all those years ago, has led us on a journey of courtship between movies and merchandising, that has brought us to The Lego Movie franchise. There have been many diversions along way – perhaps, most notably, Hasbro and the Transformers film franchise – but Lego… well, Lego is different. Lego – with all its flexibility and trans-generational appeal – has created the ultimate marriage between movies and merchandise.
The rise of movie merchandising
Bernard Loomis was a toy development executive who had worked for Mattel during the introduction of its Hot Wheels line of toy cars in the late 1960s, and proposed the animated television show that subsequently went along with it. Such an endeavour proved problematic,

And while we’re still waiting for something official from the studio, we might just have our first look at the new Solo, thanks to an unlikely source. One moviegoer attending Harkins Theater in Arizona has shared images of “a movie loyalty cup” they’ve received from the cinema chain. Amongst other characters from upcoming films, such as Lara Croft, Marvel’s Gamora and Deadpool 2‘s Domino, Han Solo and Chewie are also featured. Plus, the Millennium
The video starts out with Finn, who's still rocking his buddy Poe's jacket, saying, "May The Force be with you." We then cut to some quick action shots, which have been revealed in previous trailers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Then we move to Poe, who is doing what he does best in his X-Wing with Bb-8. While the sequence with Bb-8 getting a shock was revealed in a previous trailer,

Johnson’s feat is especially impressive, given how many other directors have been replaced before even completing one “Star Wars” film: Josh Trank, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, and Colin Trevorrow have all been dropped from upcoming movies. He previously directed “Brick,” “The Brothers Bloom,” and “Looper.”
