With only under two months to go, we are excited about the launch of the Disney streaming service Disney Plus. The reason being the same day we will be able to see the first episode of the highly anticipated ‘Star Wars’ live-action TV show ‘The Mandalorian.’
Being helmed by Star Wars TV veteran Dave Filoni and Disney darling Jon Favreau, this is without a doubt one of the most anticipated shows coming this fall. Not only is the show’s cast star-studded, but the people behind the camera are also some of the huge names in the movie industry, and considering the $15 million per episode and $120 million budget of the show, they could afford it.
Taika Waititi and Jon Favreau are already confirmed as directors, and Bryce Dallas Howard was also offered the opportunity to get behind the lens and direct one episode. Before she was asked what would it was like being on a 'Star Wars' set; she was asked if the 'Jurassic World' actress will be making an appearance in front of the camera. She did confirm she will direct an episode, but when it comes to playing a character in the show, she was not going to be doing it.
Howard, also answered what it was like being on the Star Wars set, she grew up around all of this, and she was also there when George Lucas was getting the first prequel made with her friend Natalie Portman. The actress said growing up around all of it and the master of the universe George himself, she was used to all of it, and it was like going back to her young days whenever she goes on a Star Wars set.
The actress said, “I went and visited Natalie quite a bit on that set when we were like 16-years-old and also just kind of growing up around George [Lucas] and all of that. You know what, it feels like my childhood. That’s what it feels like. Going on a Star Wars set feels like my childhood. It’s the most amazing experience.”
Though not an experienced director Bryce was privy to a great sounding board in her father, Ron Howard, who is a respected director in the industry and also most recently directed the Solo movie. Her father gave her advice relating to how best she could attack the franchise.
