Very minor SPOILERS for Solo
There is one line of dialogue in Solo that I thought could have had a double meaning. While Han Solo and Beckett are preparing for one of their missions in the film Beckett says the line “stick to the plan, don’t improvise”. Its a line you wouldn’t think twice about if you there wasn’t a large uproar about what was going on behind the scenes in the film.
I’ve commented on this dozens of times, so we all know that original Solo directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired from the project and replaced by Ron Howard. The rumors that were surrounding the project at the time were that Lord and Miller were straying from the script by Lawrence and Jon Kasdan and allowing a lot of improvisation from the actors. Lawrence Kasdan’s opinion obviously carries a lot of clout around Lucasfilm so he didn’t like that Lord and Miller were ignoring his script at times. It was probably Kasdan who had a key role is getting the pair fired.
It could be possible that this line was in the film long before, but it doesn’t make it any less ironic. I’m sure I’m not the only one who picked up on the line, but I’m sure lots of people will be taking it as a line of dialogue that serves a double meaning.
Do you think that Lawrence Kasdan was taking a shot at the previous directors with this line?
