Trivia: The film was originally set to be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, and filming was nearly completed when they left the project due to creative differences. Lord and Miller reportedly had creative clashes with the producers and writers, and wanted to make the film much more light and comedic than originally envisioned. The decision for the two to leave was reportedly an amicable one between Lord, Miller and the producers. Shortly after, Ron Howard was hired to take over the project.TedStixon

Trivia: Minor spoilers. It was revealed in a behind-the-scenes interview that Anthony Daniels, who plays the droid C-3PO in every "Star Wars" movie to date, will have a small role in "Solo", but not as his trademark character. As 3PO has no role in the film's story, Daniels will reportedly cameo as the suit-actor for one of the other Wookies seen in the film, alongside Chewbacca. This will make Daniels the only actor to ever appear in every theatrical "Star Wars" movie. (Not counting the made-for-TV "Ewok Adventure" films).TedStixon
