Will Lando Get the Next 'Star Wars' Spinoff? Lucasfilm Clarifies Comments

Will Lando Get the Next 'Star Wars' Spinoff? Lucasfilm Clarifies Comments

We don't know when we'll see Lando again after Solo: A Star Wars Story, but when we do, he'll take the lead.

The endless possibilities of what A Star Wars Story could be have dwindled since they were originally conceived.

Solo is the first in a potential series of films, with Ehrenreich signing on for three instalments, although it's unclear whether that might include an appearance in a Lando movie.

Solo: A Star Wars Story theatre drops in theatres nearly one week from now. It's possible, but I don't see it coming out anytime soon. "Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca, but Lando will be next", she said. Kennedy's reported comments had yet to be posted to the studio-run website StarWars.com by Wednesday morning.

Star Wars fans can catch Glover's Lando in Solo when it opens next week.




Nevertheless, the thought of a movie featuring the diverse and multi-talented Donald Glover is exciting, embracing the fresh, diverse nature of the Star Wars galaxy. "And he was like, 'I hear you; I don't like your odds.' And that was exactly what I needed to hear". The decision to explore Lando's story is the right one, and not a surprising one. Lucasfilm has clearly been long aware of his appeal, as the video of Glover giving a tour of Lando's Millennium Falcon (cape room included) was created to give fans exactly what they want.

Now it is faring reasonably well on Rotten Tomatoes, with an aggregated score of 73%.

"Solo" comes to theaters May 25, but it's now the worst-reviewed "Star Wars" movie since 2002's "Attack of the Clones".

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

After seeing #SoloAStarWarsStory I can confirm one thing: bank on Lando: A Star Wars Story getting a green light by the end of the year.
