The basic opinion of the matter is Henry Winkler apparently stood up himself and his vision, and thus he was ousted from the project.

“I was directing that movie for 13 days, and then I was called into (former Walt Disney Studios chairman) Jeff Katzenberg’s office and he said, ‘Do you have everything with you? Go home.’”

Asked if Hanks really was behind his departure, Henry said, “I got along great… with that dog. That dog… love that dog.”
Of course, neither one is willing to discuss the matter at length, but what is certain is that there were apparently a series of disagreements about the general direction that the film was taking.
