Lucasfilm Would Love to Eventually Make a Lando Spinoff

Emilia Clarke is tired of hearing female leads called “strong” Childish Gambino's 'Star Wars' Character Will Get Spin-Off Film

UPDATE (11:40 a.m. ET): Lucasfilm has issued a statement clarifying that something was lost in translation, and that Kathleen Kennedy told the French magazine a Lando spinoff is "something she'd like to do one day in the future".

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".

Solo: A Star Wars Story will be Disney's second standalone Star Wars film, following 2016's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

"We think the next Star Wars spin-off will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian".

Solo doesn't hit theaters for another week, but the next Star Wars spin-off may have already been revealed.

Well, you sly old dog, he's only going to get his own Star Wars Story film.

From day one, the consensus of Star Wars fans was onboard when Lucasfilm announced that Donald Glover would play a young Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

If a Lando film moves forward, what story would you like it to tell?

What Kennedy actually said was Lucasfilm would love to eventually make a Lando spin-off one day, but this is now not a priority. Even Premiere and ComicBook both note the long-gestating chatter around an Obi-Wan film.

Everyone thought Kathleen Kennedy - the head of Lucasfilm - confirmed a definitive plan.

It's nearly a no brainer to give the character and actor combination of Lando Calrissian and Donald Glover a shot at headlining a movie sometime down the line.

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. More Donald Glover makes the galaxy a better place for us all.
