Lucasfilm Boss Confirms Interest in 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Sequel

Lando Calrissian may soon be going solo.

On May 16 a French publication, Premiere, released an article in which they spoke with Lucasfilm (production company responsible for Star Wars) president Kathleen Kennedy.

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".

Coming to a close While admitting she's unsure how the award-winning show will end Emilia confessed to feeling emotional as her time on the show comes to an end

Written by Lawrence Kasdan and his son Jon, Solo: A Star Wars Story also stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Paul Bettany and Ian Kenny.

Everyone thought Kathleen Kennedy - the head of Lucasfilm - confirmed a definitive plan. It seems a misunderstanding took place and, while a Lando movie is "something [Kathleen Kennedy would] like to do one day in the future" it's not next on the agenda. "Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca, but Lando will be next".

Beyond that, in case you haven't noticed, movies with black actors and actresses in the lead have been doing phenomenally well at the box office. The next Star Wars spinoff will be about Lando Calrissian.

What's great about Lando Calrissian is that there's still so much we don't know about him.

To paraphrase Zoolander's Mugatu, "It's that damn Donald Glover!".

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

That's a correction on a quote that lit a fuse on the internet with rumors that Lando was getting his own film.

As host, he was there to promote his role as young Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story. More Donald Glover makes the galaxy a better place for us all.
