A character from the from the forthcoming Han Solo film has been cut.

Michael K. Williams played a half-human, half-animal in the movie but due to rescheduling issues after the arrival of Ron Howard, his character will no long appear in the film.

I felt great about what I created with the directors that I worked with,” he said. “It is what it is.

When Ron Howard got hired to finish out the film, there were some reshoot issues that needed to be done in regards to my character, in order for it to match the new direction which the producers wanted Ron to carry the film in.”

Alden Ehrenreich stars as our favourite smuggler and is joined by Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover and Thandie NewtonThe Han Solo film has a release date of 25 May 25 2018.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot.
