Talking to Metro UK, Ron Howard says he’d consider returning to direct another Star Wars film, saying it would ‘depend entirely on the story’.

The 64-year-old director was drafted in to replace Christopher Miller and Phil Lord on Solo: A Star Wars Story, after the pair departed the project over creative differences.

Solo: A Star Wars Story under-performed at the box office when it was released in May earlier this year, but Howard isn’t put off by the prospect of directing another outing.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk about the possibility of returning to Star Wars, Ron said: ‘I had a great experience with that. It would depend entirely on the story.

‘My daughter Bryce [Dallas Howard] is thrilled. She’s been announced to be directing one of the new episodes of the series headed by Jon Favreau.

‘She’s having a great experience. So I’m kind of living through it again through her. It’s just a creative, inspired group of movie lovers who make those projects.’
