During the promotional tour for Planet of the Apes in New York, Woody Harrelson was asked by Uproxx about the recent drama that has publically unfolded on the upcoming Untitled Han Solo Star Wars spinoff film. Harrelson praised for his former directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, “And I loved Chris and Phil. But I think we did land in very capable hands.” Harrelson is no stranger to working with Ron Howard. They both worked on 1999’s EDtv and went on to talk about his current director, “Ron is great. He’s awesome. He’s such a gentleman and so prepared.”

First of all, he had no idea a set photo had been leaked on Sunday (to the point I had to show it to him) and he did seem legitimately shocked how close up the picture is. I asked him if the announcement of a veteran director like Ron Howard can have a calming effect on a production that seems a bit, let’s say, “chaotic.”
Harrelson sat back in his chair, a smile beaming ear to ear on his face, and said, “Oh, you can relax, man – because obviously the Force is with us.” Then burst into the kind of laugh that only Woody Harrelson can do.
The Han Solo Untitled Movie is scheduled to released May 25th, 2018.
