Childish Gambino's 'Star Wars' Character Will Get Spin-Off Film

Childish Gambino's 'Star Wars' Character Will Get Spin-Off Film

The publication later adjusted its article with the note: "Lucasfilm informs us that there would have been a misunderstanding between our journalist and Kathleen Kennedy".

"We would love to tell a story about Lando Calrissian one day, but this is not news", Kennedy said. Nevertheless, a Lando Calrissian Star Wars movie would be loads of fun! In fact, within our Star Wars community at Dork Side of the Force, fans would rather have seen Lando: A Star Wars Story instead of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

The quote from Premiere reads as follows: "Nous adorerions raconter un jour une histoire consacrée à Lando Calrissian, mais ce n'est pas d'actualité".

Not only is Glover's Lando getting a lot of hype, but the actor-writer-director-musician is a huge deal right now outside of Star Wars and is one of the most talented creatives around.

What Kennedy actually said was Lucasfilm would love to eventually make a Lando spin-off one day, but this is now not a priority.

Given the massive coverage this event received, other auto brands soon entered the fray to dethrone the record set by the Touareg. Cars are a common mode of transportation and the idea of these four-wheeled vehicles towing airplanes isn't new to the world.

Even Jonathan Kasdan, the film's co-writer and die-hard Star Wars aficionado, spoke about his plans for a possible sequel involving bounty hunters, as he tried to include them in the new movie. So you can bet Lucasfilm is looking to diversify their roster of lead characters by letting Lando Calrissian lead the way.

For the time being however, it seems like the Obi-Wan Kenobi film is most likely set to become the third Anthology movie, with a recent report suggesting that it will shoot in 2019 for release in 2020. According to sources and head honcho Kathleen Kennedy herself, the next step may be a Lando Calrissian spinoff tale.

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.

Do you want to see a Lando movie? More Donald Glover makes the galaxy a better place for us all.
