As predicted, we've got some nobody who is either seriously misinformed or just plain full of crap spreading rumors and the entire Internet freaking out. * sigh * We know - and have for months - why an acting coach was hired for Alden, and it has nothing to do with what this anonymous yahoo thinks it does. Lord and Miller's refusal to stay on script and actually make the movie Lucasfilm wanted them to got to the point where it was affecting Alden's ability to do his job, and so an acting coach was brought in to try and help him deal with and adapt to the situation. We also know why they didn't push the release date for Solo back: the goal is to reclaim May as "Star Wars release month". Plus, they already had a script that they were all kinds of pleased with and just needed Howard to come in, "right the ship", and follow said script, only to realize they had an opportunity to allow him to make the movie definitively "his own"... hence him reshooting "80%" of the movie (in just 8 weeks [3 weeks of Principal Photography and 5 weeks of Pickup shooting], mind you, with no additional shooting days needing to be scheduled). Episode IX was a different kettle of fish entirely, as they had to completely start over from the script stage when Carrie died and again when Trevorrow left or was fired.
