Lucasfilm Shoots Down Report About Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian Spinoff Film

Lucasfilm Shoots Down Report About Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian Spinoff Film”

What Kennedy actually said was Lucasfilm would love to eventually make a Lando spin-off one day, but this is now not a priority.

I can't see a Lando movie not happening, considering both fan reaction to the glimpses of Glover's portrayal we've gotten in the Solo lead-up, as well as the fact that Glover is already signed on for multiple movies. It is the second in a series of planned standalone "Star Wars" movies meant to exist outside the main trilogies.

Original Story: Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy seems to have confirmed that the next Star Wars "anthology" spin-off will focus on Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian. This translates to: "We would love to tell one day a story dedicated to Lando Calrissian, but that is not topical*". The publication quoted Kennedy stating that Lando's story would be the next one to be told in the franchise.

While rumors about future standalone films are plentiful - including buzz about a Boba Fett film and an Obi-Wan Kenobi film - Disney/Lucasfilm has yet to confirm them.

Ever since Donald Glover's casting was announced for Solo, my first thought was, But what about a Lando movie?

Update: io9 reports that Lucasfilm now says that the quote may not be entirely accurate, but didn't deny the possibility of the Lando movie outright.

While that's not up there with the likes of Rogue One and the last two main saga entries, it's still better than many expected following the high-profile exits of directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The film dials back the clock to chronicle Han Solo during the early years of his life as he proves himself as a criminal and meets Chewbacca.

The next film that will come from the studio in the Star Wars series is Episode IX, which is slated to come out in 2019.

Solo: A Star Wars Story arrιves in theaters May 25, 2018.
