The 'Han Solo' Movie Is Falling Apart & The Memes Are Too Much
27 June 2017, 11:27
The 'Star Wars' spin off is having a tough time at the moment but at least the internet is still enjoying itself.
The upcoming Star Wars spinoff movie focusing on the younger years of the legendary Han Solo character, starring an incredible cast including Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and Donald Glover, has hit a few more than a few roadbumps lately.
Last week, directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were promptly fired from the production just a few weeks before the end of filming with Ron Howard drafted in as a replacement. But, as if that wasn't bad enough, more details have now emerged in the Hollywood Reporter about clashes with producers, panics over script direction and, perhaps most damning of all, the hiring of an acting coach to help out the movie's star Alden Ehrenreich. Ouch.
Hopefully, the film will still come out looking great and, as big Star Wars fans, we are genuinely rooting for the team. But, in the meantime, at least we can take comfort in the fact that all this drama has brought out the best memes the internet has to offer.
Here are just a few of our fave reactions to the Han Solo drama so far:
1) Was this Donald's reaction when he came back from lunch on set?

*Three weeks of filming left with new director
*Disney not happy with Han Solo actor's performance

2) The fandom know what's up.

4) Hey, at least the producers have everything under control.

5) Ron seems pretty happy about everything though.
6) Hey, anyone know what that acting coach they've hired looks like?

Would that it were so simple.
7) Then, of course, there's Harrison...

(You just know he's secretly enjoying all this).
The Han Solo movie is still due to be released in summer 2018. Fingers crossed things stay that way.
