The two men, pictured above, are creative, fun, rich and (notice their posture) very down to earth. In the law of attraction, you must “let go of negative thoughts” and know that you are going to be successful, despite appearances that might suggest the absolutely opposite.
“In the beginning, many people didn’t see our vision,” shared the two dynamic storytellers. That was then, this is now. “We just kept at it, and here we are, and we are having fun,” said Phil Lord.
“Crazy fun, and sometimes stressful fun, but fun, fun, fun,” added Christopher Miller.
Can you imagine the amount of “stressful fun” that’s coming toward Miller and Lord as they explore “the force”?
Buckle up, because a new adventure in the series of “Star Wars” films will be directed by Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, whose credits include the critically acclaimed “The Lego Movie,” ”Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs,” “21 Jump Street” and “22 Jump Street.”
These groovy storytellers are, in truth, among the most sought-after filmmakers working today. The two have proved a formidable duo in film and television and are looking forward to applying their unique sensibilities to the “Star Wars” universe.
“This is the first film we’ve worked on that seems like a good idea to begin with. We promise to take risks, to give the audience a fresh experience, and we pledge ourselves to be faithful stewards of these characters who mean so much to us. This is a dream come true for us, and not the kind of dream where you’re late for work and all your clothes are made of pudding, but the kind of dream where you get to make a film with some of the greatest characters ever, in a film franchise you’ve loved since before you can remember having dreams at all,” said Miller and Lord.
The screenplay is written by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan. According to Variety, “The story focuses on how young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina at Mos Eisley.” Lawrence Kasdan, the writer and director known for “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “The Big Chill” and “Grand Canyon,” is familiar to “Star Wars” fans, having co-written the screenplays for “The Empire Strikes Back,” “Return of the Jedi” and “The Force Awakens.” His son Jon wrote and directed “The First Time,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and “In the Land of Women,” as well as writing for the television series “Freaks and Geeks” and “Dawson’s Creek.”
