Ron Howard, director of the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, took some time away from post-production on the spinoff to check out the latest installment in the series, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. He praised Rian Johnson and said his screening was full of cheers and applause.

“Took a break from editing to see Great job cast & crew. The paying crowd our family saw it with cheered & applauded”

Production on Solo wrapped back in October, but news surrounding the project has been interesting since. Howard nearly doubled the project’s original budget for reshoots – apparently, he reshot 80 percent of the film. Along with that, a rumor surfaced back in September that stated Darth Vader will be appearing in the movie, but no other details on that have been released.
