LucasFilm's Keen For A Lando Spin-Off, So Prep For Maximum Donald Glover

He's got the number one song in America, he's hosted Saturday Night Live, he's released the hilarious second season of Atlanta, and now, he's starred in Solo: A Star Wars Story as Lando Calrissian.

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has been making the publicity rounds for Solo in the wake of the world premiere in Los Angeles and the Cannes Film Festival screening earlier this week. The publication quoted Kennedy stating that Lando's story would be the next one to be told in the franchise. Reportedly, studio chief Kathleen Kennedy has mentioned what a lot of people have been asking for since about the time the first trailers for Solo: A Star Wars Story were released. A solo Lando movie will give Glover a chance to explore the aspects of the charismatic character that may have informed his performance but have yet to be fully explored on screen. Lucasfilm already has too many projects on hand.

Rumors of a Ewan McGregor led Obi-Wan adventure are forever prevalent.

"George [Lucas] and [Kathleen Kennedy] had decided that, as the company went on without George, and Kathy would run it, that part of what they were going to do was continue the Star Wars movies, and they had an idea for a bunch of 'em", Lawrence said.

And so it seems that we can all look forward to more Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian down the road, at some point, eventually.

And that step may come sooner than you think. But we hope that decision ends up being the one Lucasfilm makes. "It would also be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie..." .

"And if there is a Lando movie, it's hard to imagine doing it without Lobot".

Donald Glover proves that even in a galaxy far, far away he's a superstar.

While we patiently await the premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story next week, today we get a fresh batch of Star Wars news. 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.

The next Star Wars movie in cinemas will be the very highly anticipated Episode 9 in 2019.
