Lando Calrissian Is Getting His Own Star Wars Movie

Lucasfilm

I'm guessing if the box office return for Han Solo is lower than what Disney would like, we could see leadership changes at LucasFilm with the ouster of Kathleen Kennedy.

See more in the video below. Director Ron Howard, wearing a hat that read "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away", introduced his cast before the film's global premiere at Cannes.

So what sort of schedule can we expect if Lando is suddenly next in the pipeline? Ford shares a lot of the same traits of Solo: he can be gruff, but his gruffness is also kind of hilarious. But only a glimmer of the hardassed charmer that Harrison Ford IMMORTALIZED finds its way into this episode. Absolutely not, and that's okay. Here, Han meets Chewbacca! He's younger; funnier; more cocky.

Remember what I said about Ehrenreich not really resembling or imitating Harrison Ford, and yet doing such a great job? Most importantly, Han has his first encounter with the prototypical Allied resistance against the Empire. He has total faith in his abilities to scam his way out of any situation, and make things right.

As the fandom anxious about the state of Solo in the wake of Phil Lord and Chris Miller's firing, one can only imagine how much more stressful it was on set. Now, years have passed, and the only way for Han to get home is to throw in with a team of outlaws. Firstly, they need a reliable starship. We can see these two growing into the lifelong friends they'll become.

But one of the major standouts of the film is Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. While there has not been any confirmation yet, he says he already knows where the character will be headed. Glover's Lando doesn't walk through this movie - he glides, as if the magnificent capes he wears have provided him with the gift of flight. Phoebe Waller-Bridge, creator of Fleabag, has great fun as L3, a robot who yearns for autonomy in a delightful echo of Bender from Futurama.

Walsh also shared some red carpet shots of Newton, dubbing the Swarovski-detailed gown, "a dress made of dreams, and it's about time!"

Ohio State will play at Creighton and Penn State will face DePaul in Chicago on November 15, while the final game will see St. Played in honor of David Gavitt, the first commissioner of the Big East, this event is entering its fourth season.

But the movie crumbles following Han and the gang's thrilling completion of the legendary Kessel Run. Will Lando look out for himself above anyone else? Han is warned early on by Woody Harrelson's Tobias to "assume everyone will betray you... then you won't be disappointed". Will Chewbacca roar and growl in ways that only Han seems to understand? These questions will likely be answered in Lando; the only other question now is just who and how many are interested in finding out the answers. The film never sits still, zipping from one planet, one action beat, to the next. Personally, I think this is less the leftover effect of Chris Miller and Phil Lord's involvement in the movie as one-time directors, and more on eventual director Ron Howard's vanilla style. Emphasis on romantic. While Clarke's portrayal of Qi'ra is a bit one-note at times, she and Ehrenreich share a palpable chemistry together.

In hindsight, tackling such a beloved character - 41 years to the day after "Star Wars'" introduction with "A New Hope" - presented an especially daunting task, inviting sky-high expectations. What hurts Solo is the fact that it's ultimately not about anything. These stories are products.

"Solo" of course has a number of massive, rapid-fire CGI action sequences, sometimes accompanied by snippets of the famous "Star Wars" theme. It's Howard's more workmanlike, less antic sensibility that infuses "Solo" and, in many cases, drags it down, with the few remaining traces of quippy, flippant humor either falling flat or sounding hopelessly derivative.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) - Fan Score: 47 percent. Rian Johnson's film is loaded with ideas - it's a big, bold, brilliant film with a lot on its mind.

The best moments in "Solo" are the simpler ones: The romance, the friendships, the clashing egos. Maybe that's not such a bad thing.
