Phil Lord and Chris Miller are American film and television writers, producers, directors, actors and former animators. Lord and Miller met each other while at Dartmouth College. They are noted for being two of the youngest showrunners in the industry at the time.

In an interview with Robert K. Elder for his book The Best Film You've Never Seen, Phil Lord explains that "…in an animated feature, you remake the movie three or four times, and it’s really easy to get bummed out that the way you did it before didn’t get green lit, didn’t get paid, and you’re making a totally different version of that movie.”

Biography

Christopher Robert Miller nait à Everett dans l'État de Washington.

Chris Miller débute en tant qu'acteur dans la série télévisée Caroline in the City en 1998. C'est là qu'il rencontre Phil Lord. Peu de temps après, ils coécrivent leur premier scénario pour la série Zoé, Duncan, Jack et Jane. Trois ans plus tard, ils lancent la série d'animation Clone High.

En 2009, Chris Miller réalise, toujours avec Phil Lord, leur premier long métrage d'animation : Tempête de boulettes géantes (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs). C'est un succès mondial avec 243 006 126 dollars de recettes à travers le monde. En 2012, ils sont les réalisateurs de la comédie d'action 21 Jump Street avec Jonah Hill et Channing Tatum, adaptée de la série culte éponyme. C'est un nouveau succès, avec des recettes mondiales atteignant plus de 200 millions de dollars.

En 2014, il sort deux longs métrages avec Phil Lord. Tout d'abord le film d'animation La Grande Aventure Lego, une comédie loufoque inspirée des jouets Lego créés par Ole Kirk Christiansen. Quelques mois plus tard, sort 22 Jump Street, qui fait suite à 21 Jump Street (2012).

En juillet 2015, il est annoncé, toujours avec son compère Phil Lord, comme réalisateur d'un film spin-off Star Wars centré sur Han Solo. Second spin-off de la série A Star Wars Story, après Rogue One, le film est prévu pour 2018. Le 20 juin 2017, Kathleen Kennedy, présidente de Lucasfilm annonce que Phil Lord et Chris Miller ne seront plus les réalisateurs du film sur Han Solo, pour des différents sur la vision créative de l’œuvre. Ils sont remplacés par Ron Howard, alors que le tournage était cependant bien avancé. Les deux réalisateurs expliquent alors « malheureusement, notre vision et façon de faire n'étaient pas raccords avec nos partenaires sur ce projet. Nous ne sommes habituellement pas fans de la phrase “divergences créatives”, mais pour une fois, c'est tout à fait cela. Nous sommes vraiment fiers de notre casting et de notre équipe quatre étoiles. » En mars 2018, ils annoncent qu'ils seront finalement crédits au générique comme producteurs délégués.

After Flint Lockwood and his friends save the world from the food storm in the first film, super-inventor Chester V, the CEO of Live Corp, is tasked to clean the island. He relocates Flint, his friends, and the citizens of Swallow Falls to San Franjose, California. Unbeknownst to Flint, the FLDSMDFR survived the explosion and landed in the center of the island, and Chester is determined to find it. Chester invites Flint, his biggest fan, to work at Live Corp, where he meets Chester's assistant Barb, a talking orangutan with human intelligence. Six months later, Flint humiliates himself during a promotion ceremony when his invention, the "Celebrationator", explodes. Meanwhile, Chester is informed that his search-parties on the island have been attacked by monstrous cheeseburgers named Cheespiders (a combination of a Cheeseburger and a Spider) which are learning how to swim. Seemingly fearing the world's inevitable doom, Chester tasks Flint to find the FLDSMDFR and destroy it once and for all. Despite Chester's demands to keep the mission classified, Flint recruits his girlfriend, meteorologist Sam Sparks; her cameraman Manny; police officer Earl Devereaux; Steve, a monkey who communicates via a device on his chest; and "Chicken" Brent. Much to Flint's dismay, his father Tim joins the crew and they travel to Swallow Falls on his fishing boat.

L'univers de Star Wars tourne autour des tentatives de séparation d'un groupe favorable à un empire de la République galactique. Pour ce faire, les séparatistes entraînent des dirigeants de la République dans des affaires ingérables grâce aux manigances du Chancelier Suprême Palpatine, qui dit servir la démocratie tout en étant favorable à un empire. Pour maintenir la paix en place, les Jedi combattent les ennemis de la République, mais ceux-ci doivent faire face aux Seigneurs Sith (dont Palpatine est membre, sous le nom de Dark Sidious), tous sont sensibles à la Force, une capacité d'origine physiologique qui permet à leurs détenteurs d'acquérir certains pouvoirs surnaturels.

Avant, les cigognes livraient les bébés, au point d'avoir fondé une entreprise uniquement consacrée à cette tâche. Mais ça, c'était avant. Un jour, l'une d'entre elles, Jasper, refusa de livrer une petite fille, souhaitant la garder. La balise de géolocalisation de l'enfant se brisa dans la bagarre entre les cigognes, Jasper s'enfuit, et la petite fille, Tulipe, resta à la charge de la compagnie. Son boss, Hunter, décida alors de changer totalement leurs activités : désormais, les cigognes livrent des paquets pour un site de commerce électronique, et ont totalement abandonné la livraison de bébés ; elles emploient également d'autres espèces d'oiseaux à des tâches subalternes.
