"Wait, Dad, sit up. You've got a little--" Bryce Dallas Howard said, breaking into a laugh.
"OK. Good daughter. I appreciate that," Ron Howard grinned back. "Thank you."
The father-daughter duo both have huge, blockbuster movies coming out this summer -- Ron directed Solo: A Star Wars Story, which opens May 25, while Bryce stars in the upcoming Jurassic World sequel, Fallen Kingdom -- so who better to interview each other than each other? The Howards sat down for a nearly hour-long discussion for ET to talk growing up on film sets and visiting that galaxy far, far away.
"When you were on the set of American Graffiti, didn't you say [to George Lucas] like, 'So, what are you working on next?'" Bryce asked about the 1973 comedy, directed by Lucas and starring Ron. "What was his answer?"
"He said, 'I dunno, kind of like a Flash Gordon movie, you know, or Buck Rogers, one of those serialized things. But instead of spaceships being on wires, I want to use Stanley Kubrick-2001 special effects,'" Ron recalled. "He says, 'But I want the spaceships to go fast.'"
All these years later, Ron is the one revving the Millennium Falcon's engines, at least behind the scenes, with Alden Ehrenreich stepping into Harrison Ford's shoes as a young Han Solo and Donald Glover playing Lando Calrissian.
"He met Harrison Ford and Harrison told him, 'I hope you're not thinking of doing an imitation of me,'" Ron said of Ehrenreich. "And he said, 'Well, gratefully, nobody wants me to do that and I don't want to.' His performance is fantastic, along with Donald Glover and Emilia Clarke."
Bryce grew up visiting her "daddio's" sets -- "When I would get grounded I would be grounded from the set," she revealed. "Mom knew--" "That was really the only way to punish you." -- and still does, though even she doesn't know some of Solo's secrets. Though Ron played coy about any cameos in the movie, Bryce had a more pressing question.
"So, why didn't you ask me to make a surprise cameo in this film?" she asked.
"I think you were busy," Ron deflected.
"Nope. I was right there, Dad" Bryce said.
"I should have made you a stormtrooper!" he exclaimed.
