  • Lando Calrissian

It was earlier thought that Lucasfilm's president Kathleen Kennedy had revealed that the next Star Wars spin-off would be entirely dedicated to telling the story of Lando. The publication quoted Kennedy stating that Lando's story would be the next one to be told in the franchise.

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

Lucasfilm has confirmed they're considering a Lando Calrissian spinoff.

Lucasfilm might be planning a Lando Calrissian spin-off soon.

Glover has already received rave reviews for his portrayal of the well-loved character in Solo, with critics praising him as "tremendous" and "charming x1000".

Since 2017, an Obi-Wan movie has been reportedly in the works at Lucas. Sources close to Lucasfilm tell IndieWire that there are no concrete plans for a Lando standalone film at this time but that the studio is eyeing numerous options for the future.

We're just happy that we probably haven't seen the last of Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. "And he was like, 'I hear you; I don't like your odds.' And that was exactly what I needed to hear. I mean, I think you know one of the things though that's interesting is, I want to see a Lando film very similar way to the way I think Larry was excited by a Han film". But a movie focusing on Lando Calrrissian out on his own would be sublime. "It would be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie".

IndieWire's Kate Erbland is sure Glover's Lando "could easily handle his own spinoff". We can now add a Lando movie to the list of films we expect to see, with no idea when we actually expect to see them.

There would have been plenty of room in the official Star Wars canon for more Lando stories, likely set after the events of Solo.
