Vajda could work with the first director-duo – Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were fired by Disney over creative differences and were followed by Hollywood director Ron Howard. Vajda says there had been problems during production but elaborated no further. He started shooting the movie with Ron Howard, who radiated peace and confidence.
“He is an outstanding director, radiating security, understanding and kindness – I never felt like a foreigner”,
said Attila Vajda. He said everyone was very professional and nice, they never lacked anything. Vajda himself is not a hardcore Star Wars-fan, but his minimal background knowledge helped him to act spontaneously and find everything during the filming interesting. He added: “It was a bit hard to part ways at the end because it started to feel more and more like a family”.
