There are many things worth turning down in a car park, but the big chair on a Star Wars film is probably not one of them. Then again, 7 billion of us aren’t Ron Howard, and speaking to Total Film he explained why he came to that decision.
“It was a casual conversation in a car park. It was not like I read a script and weighed it carefully.
“It was a knee-jerk reaction because I immediately felt like George should do it.”
All good things come to those who wait, and the prequels turned out just fine, so all’s well that ends well.
