Favreau, who went on to direct Iron Man and now The Mandalorian Disney Plus show, was clearly open to the idea.

He said: “You can play with the narrative structure and you can play with things in a way where you could do a cool version that the fans would like, and the people that were involved in it might be so charmed by it that they’d be involved in some other capacity.”

The problem seems to be that one of those people was not so charmed by the director himself.

James Caan, who played his real father in the classic film, spelled out the problem rather bluntly this week.
