Lando Might Be The Next Star Wars Spin-Off Movie

Media playback is unsupported on your device                  WATCH A quick look at'Solo A Star Wars Story

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. The hype came fast, but it was apparently all for naught.

Lando Calrissian, the smoothest smuggler in the galaxy, may be the subject of the next Star Wars stand alone movie.

Glover has said he's always wanted to play Calrissian, a role originally played by Billy Dee Williams in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and he may get his wish. The decision to explore Lando's story is the right one, and not a surprising one.

The quote seems straight forward. So you can bet Lucasfilm is looking to diversify their roster of lead characters by letting Lando Calrissian lead the way.

Premiere France has since adjusted their article due to the vast backlash they've received.

Rumor started this morning of a Lando Calrissian movie as foretold by Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy.

Kennedy added, according to Première, that there are more stories to be told around Han Solo and Chewbacca, but that "Lando will be next". Kennedy instead said something akin to the Lando Calrissian movie being something she'd like to do some day, but there are no concrete plans for it to be the next spin-off just yet. So while Lucasfilm isn't confirming it's the next spinoff film coming, it's certainly a story the studio is interested in telling.

See original story below. The movie has been getting rave reviews, and people who have viewed the movie are praising both Ehrenreich and Glover for their performances.

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.
