Lando Calrissian Is Getting His Own Star Wars Movie

Premiere blames a miscommunication between Kennedy and the interviewer for the previous erroneous quote. Lucasfilm cites translation issues between their president Kathleen Kennedy and the journalist from the French publication, Premiere.

"We think that the next spin-off will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian", Kennedy told Premiere. "It would also be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie..." .

"UPDATE: io9 contacted Lucasfilm and confirmed that the quote wasn't translated correctly, with a rep saying: "[Kennedy] said it's something she'd like to do one day in the future".

LUCASFILMWhich Star Wars character is next for the spin-off treatment? While many outlets are reporting that the movie will begin shooting in January 2019, Fantha Tracks is reporting that the Obi-Wan movie is now in pre-production and will begin shooting in April 2019, with a December 2020 release date.

Lando Calrissian Is Getting His Own Star Wars Movie

"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. According to sources and head honcho Kathleen Kennedy herself, the next step may be a Lando Calrissian spinoff tale.

It's evident that Donald Glover portrays Lando Calrissian flawlessly, but could a Lando movie work in terms of great storytelling?

I've literally not seen the movie yet so I don't know about the amount of Lando within, but I assume there's a lot yet never enough, if you know what I mean. But that comic series takes place before Solo: A Star Wars Story, and presumably a big screen spin-off would take place after the events of that movie. More Donald Glover makes the galaxy a better place for us all.
