This entry in the STAR WARS saga just seems to be cursed. Well, either that or Disney and Lucasfilm are being very careful about the direction their movies take in the galaxy far far away and if their hired directors don’t tow the line they get replaced with a safe pair of hands.

According to awesome movie site joblo.com director Ron Howard, who took over from original pair Chris Lord and Phil Miller, has re-shot up to 80% of the film. That seems like an awful lot to change and makes us wonder about just exactly what the studio were expecting when they hired Lord and Miller originally. They are both very talented in their own right and perhaps should have been given a chance to really own the movie. However, all will be revealed in due course and at least the movie has an awesome cast to see it through. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section and head over to Joblo for the full report.
