Lucasfilm Would Love to Eventually Make a Lando Spinoff

Lucasfilm  Disney

Speaking yesterday, Kennedy said - according to Business Insider: "We think that the next spin-off will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian". "There are still many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca".

Lucasfilm has confirmed they're considering a Lando Calrissian spinoff.

Billy Dee Williams originated the character of Lando Calrissian in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, but he's set to make his big screen return in Solo, played by Donald Glover.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is making its own Kessel Run toward theaters on May 25.

However, Lucasfilm later said that Kennedy had been misquoted.

Since 2017, an Obi-Wan movie has been reportedly in the works at Lucas.

PNB Scam: CBI files chargesheet against Mehul Choksi, 17 other
The development comes a day after PNB recorded a huge loss worth Rs 13,417 crore in its fourth-quarter net loss on Tuesday. The m-cap of PNB Housing Finance stood at Rs 21,265.20 crore on May 16 compared with PNB's Rs 20,856.10 crore.

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.

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.

Solo hasn't even been released yet and already LucasFilm is putting their faith in Donald Glover as they announced earlier today that they will be giving Lando Calrissian his own origin story film. We don't know when we'll see Lando again after Solo: A Star Wars Story, but when we do, he'll take the lead. It's possible, but I don't see it coming out anytime soon.

We'll see what the future holds for the smugglers. "It would also be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie..." . Kristy Puchko's mostly negative review at Pajiba is, "Can we get a Lando movie now, please?"

I may be down on the prospect of Star Wars being continuously trapped in the past, but if Lucasfilm is determined to fill out the backstory of all our favorite characters, Lando is not an individual I would bemoan.
