The film of course has had a rocky flight from start til now- the original writer director team of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller being fired by LucasFilm President Kathleen Kennedy over what was cited as "creative differences". Howard was brought on to take over and complete the picture.

Back on the 20th, Howard had tweeted that the final sound mix was done, and a bonus image revealed that his brother Clint Howard really was going to be in the film after several weeks of tweets begged to know.
