If you’re anything like us, chances are you’ve had *so* many questions about the behind the scenes drama with the untitled Han Solo film.

TL;DR: Last month, directors  Chris Miller and Phil Lord were fired from the project by Lucasfilm four months into filming, ultimately being replaced by Ron Howard.

Just after Kathleen Kennedy announced that Howard would be assuming the role of director for the film, The Hollywood Reporter wrote an article detailing ALL the behind the scenes drama that resulted in Miller and Lord’s departure — from their clashing with Kennedy and executive producer and writer Lawrence Kasdan, to the alleged unsatisfactory performance from star Alden Ehrenreich.

The whole thing had us like:

But one of the lingering questions that wasn’t addressed was: What does the cast make of all of this? With the drama playing out very publicly, the cast — which includes Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge — remained incredibly tight-lipped.

But now, a nearly month after the initial news broke, Woody Harrelson has finally addressed the issue in the most Woody way possible.

Did you hear that? The Force is with Woody Harrelson and the rest of the cast so EVERYTHING is going to be okay.

Elaborating a little further, Harrelson revealed that Howard is the perfect person to take on the director’s role but he still has a ton of love for Miller and Lord.

Harrelson and Howard previously worked together on the 1999 film EDtv and it seems The Hunger Games actor has full confidence that Howard will steer the Millennium Falcon back on course. The untitled Han Solo film — which I honestly think should be in the running for the film’s *actual* name — will fly into theaters on May 25, 2018.
