Ron Howard makes some comments about his first adventure in A Galaxy Far, Far Away on Twitter. He discusses how he has been around Star Wars basically since the beginning. Also, TMZ asks George Lucas his thoughts on Ron Howard’s journey into Star Wars and Lucas also gets some shots in at the fake Autograph seekers (pretty funny, worth a watch). And Ron Howard’s letter defending The Phantom Menace & Jake Llyod’s performance. Come on in and check it out!
Here is an image from a letter than Ron Howard sent in 1999 to Newsweek for bashing Jake Lloyd’s performance based on “inside” rumors.
Now, he has several reasons to write this letter. One reason, its his buddy’s film. Another reason, he was a child actor and he knows the stresses he faced. So I think it was nice of him to try and defend the 9-year-old Jake (poor kid got way more than he bargained for). However, it is still nice to see that Ron Howard has enough respect for Star Wars to care and write this letter.
Some tweets from Ron Howard sharing his feelings on being selected as the Han Solo director.
Looks like it was an epic first day on the set with Ron!
I ABSOLUTELY had to share this with everyone. George Lucas, being swamped by autograph seekers, breiefly comments on Ron Howard’s directing job, Mark Hamill’s Hollywood Star, and then goes on a rant about the fake Autograph seekers and tells them to get a job! I loved it!
