LucasFilms Hopes There Will Be a Solo Donald Glover 'Star Wars' Spin-off

'Lando' Movie in the Works, Says Lucasfilm Chief Kathleen Kennedy Sorry, Lando Isn't Getting His Own Star Wars Movie Just Yet

You have to admit, people are extremely apprehensive that this 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' is going to be good.

That's right, following the premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has confirmed/teased that the galaxy's most charming gambler is due to get his time in the spotlight (at long last). The possibilities are endless.

A recent comic book miniseries focusing on Lando Calrissian began in 2015, which could provide some interesting inspiration for a Lando movie. Fantasies of Old Republic history lessons have resulted in the realities of Rogue One and Solo. Still doing anything. Like, I think that would just be fun to just see him just like... This translates to: "We would love to tell one day a story dedicated to Lando Calrissian, but that is not topical*". As i09 reported, Lucasfilm requested a revision, and the above quote was the result. Are you excited? What do you want from a Lando movie?

Star Wars fans can catch Glover's Lando in Solo when it opens next week. "And he was like, 'I hear you; I don't like your odds.' And that was exactly what I needed to hear".

Who will walk Megan down the aisle then? Markle starred on the show for several years, and she played the role of Rachel Zane. A source also confirmed to US Weekly that George Clooney and Amal Clooney have been invited to the royal wedding reception.

"First of all I'm dying to see a Lando film". If Lucasfilm is ready to say that a Lando movie is on the way when it's not ready to commit to any direct sequels to Solo, then it would seem that the studio feels the same way.

Now it is faring reasonably well on Rotten Tomatoes, with an aggregated score of 73%. "Ce serait aussi amusant de relater l'histoire de Han et Chewie..."

Glover portrays Lando Calrissian in the film, a role originated in the original "Star Wars" trilogy by Billy Dee Williams, and has received much praise for his performance already.

After seeing #SoloAStarWarsStory I can confirm one thing: bank on Lando: A Star Wars Story getting a green light by the end of the year.
