Lando Calrissian likely next Star Wars spinoff film according to Kathleen Kennedy

Emilia Clarke is tired of hearing female leads called “strong”

Emilia Clarke is tired of hearing female leads called “strong”

This translates to: "We would love to tell one day a story dedicated to Lando Calrissian, but that is not topical*". Nevertheless, a Lando Calrissian Star Wars movie would be loads of fun! At the moment, Glover stars alongside Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Paul Bettany and Thandie Newton in the new Solo: A Star Wars Story film that is set to drop in two weeks.

It sounds like the possibility of a series of movies focusing on Han Solo and Chewbacca was long in the works, as cowriter and Star Wars legend Lawrence Kasdan told ComicBook.com last week.

Even Jonathan Kasdan, the film's co-writer and die-hard Star Wars aficionado, spoke about his plans for a possible sequel involving bounty hunters, as he tried to include them in the new movie.

Solo doesn't hit theaters for another week, but the next Star Wars spin-off may have already been revealed. "When I heard they were making these, I told my agent, 'if they're making anything with Lando in it, I have to be Lando, '" he said over the weekend during a Solo press day. Forget about Obi-Wan Kenobi, though - Lucasfilm wants Lando Calrissian to be the focus of the next one. However, Lucasfilm reps quickly squashed all of these stories and confirmed Kathleen Kennedy never said any such thing. In turns out that it was simply a miscommunication between Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy and a French journalist.


Meanwhile, there's also inspiration that can be drawn from a forthcoming Lando comic miniseries called Double or Nothing that features Donald Glover's likeness as Lando.

So what sort of schedule can we expect if Lando is suddenly next in the pipeline?

There's nothing that Donald Glover isn't capable of right now.
