Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian Solo Film Idea Shut Down By LucasFilm

Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian Solo Film Idea Shut Down By LucasFilm

Down the line, we will more than likely see Lando in his own film, but it won't be the next Star Wars solo movie.

With the assist of Google Translate, here's a rough translation of what she said: "There are still many stories to be told about Han and Chewbacca, but Lando will be next".

"Following the publication of our article, Lucasfilm informs us that there would have been a misunderstanding between our journalist and Kathleen Kennedy".

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 yet-to-be-titled Episode IX is slated for a 2019 release but beyond that it's just a rough sketch rather than a solid outline.

"We think that the next spin-off will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian", was the original translation that was reported. It is the second in a series of planned standalone "Star Wars" movies meant to exist outside the main trilogies.

At the same time, I have deep respect for the federalism principles that underlie today's Supreme Court decision", he said. Supreme Court's decision Monday to toss the federal ban on sports gambling will let states allow the wagering.

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. The publication quoted Kennedy stating that Lando's story would be the next one to be told in the franchise.

When that might happen, though, is unknown.

Without getting into spoiler territory, Solo does a solid job of introducing Lando Calrissian but does not focus on him or over-explain his mystique.

We receive a little taste of it within the Lando Marvel Comics series, which is second only to both Darth Vader run. A Lando film is but the next logical step. If you are late to the party, you definitely need to check it out.
