Phil Lord (born July 12, 1975) is an American film producer, director, and writer who is an executive producer of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Lord and industry partner Christopher Miller were the original directors for the film,[1] but were replaced by Ron Howard.[2]

In 2018, in response to if the concept of the Cloud-Riders from Solo: A Star Wars Story originated from the 1977 Star Wars Legends comic, Star Wars 9: Showdown on a Wasteland World!, or if it was just coincidental, Jon Kasdan, a writer of the film, replied on Twitter that it was no coincidence, as when former directors Christopher Miller and Lord settled on swoop bikes for the group, Kasdan found the Star Wars Legends Cloud-Riders when browsing through Wookieepedia, and the name stuck.[3]

When Chris & Phil decided they wanted to do swoop bikes instead, we found the Cloud Riders on Wookieepedia, from above Marvel comic, and it STUCK." (screenshot)
