She recently told French magazine Premiere that giving Calrissian a spin-off movie is certainly something she's thought about.

Star Wars officials have clarified reports suggesting Donald Glover's character Lando Calrissian will become the subject of the next franchise prequel movie. With Solo: A Star Wars Story on the cusp of release and Episode IX looming on the horizon, where does Disney take their billion dollar property from here? Lucasfilm chalked it up to a misunderstanding between Kennedy and the reporter. Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian may be getting his own spin-off movie.

'Lando' Movie in the Works, Says Lucasfilm Chief Kathleen Kennedy
Sorry, Lando Isn't Getting His Own Star Wars Movie Just Yet

While that's not up there with the likes of Rogue One and the last two main saga entries, it's still better than many expected following the high-profile exits of directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller. At the Cannes Film Festival, Kathleen Kennedy told Premiere France (with a hat tip to ComicBook) that yes, Lucasfilm's thinking has expanded to include the possibility of a Lando Calrissian solo movie. It may be somewhere down the line, but given the early buzz about Lando, I think most people are crossing their fingers it'll be soon. "It would also be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie..." . We can now add a Lando movie to the list of films we expect to see, with no idea when we actually expect to see them. "When they called me up there, I said, 'I don't know if I'm up for a fourth Star Wars movie, ' and they said, 'Well, what if it was Han?'"

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. And likewise, Matt Singer of Screen Crush suggests, "If Lucasfilm really is serious about a Solo sequel, I only want to see it if it's called Lando: A Star Wars Story".
