Lando Calrissian Spinoff May Be Next in STAR WARS Universe

Lando Calrissian Spinoff May Be Next in STAR WARS Universe

The possibilities are endless.

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".

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.

And that step may come sooner than you think.

"In a role that demands greatness, he is, in a word, okay", wrote Nick Schager of The Daily Beast, adding that the movie "sacrifices Han Solo's swagger for a bland origin story".

However, Lucasfilm told io9 shortly after this quote started making the rounds online that the quote in question from the French magazine was not translated correctly.

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

Glover, meanwhile, has been soaking up his time in the Star Wars sun, recently telling The Hollywood Reporter that joining the film series feels like "getting to be part of the Bible".

Nevertheless, the thought of a movie featuring the diverse and multi-talented Donald Glover is exciting, embracing the fresh, diverse nature of the Star Wars galaxy. You'd join any scheme Lando asked of you, and apparently, I'm not alone on that daydream. A Lando film is but the next logical step. "Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and (sidekick) Chewbacca, but Lando will be next". A solo Lando movie will give Glover a chance to explore the aspects of the charismatic character that may have informed his performance but have yet to be fully explored on screen.

Now it is faring reasonably well on Rotten Tomatoes, with an aggregated score of 73%.

"Solo: A Star Wars Story" received a 71 percent positive score on film website Rotten Tomatoes on Tuesday, the day the first reviews were released. We'll always show up for Han and Chewie, but the early buzz suggests Lucasfilm picked the wrong sidekick to take center stage.

So, we don't yet have a confirmed Lando movie. It'll also be interesting to see how Lucasfilm changes up Daniels' look so fans will be able to differentiate between this older character and the new one, Tak.
