Star Wars: Lando Calrissian Movie is NOT Next Lucasfilm Project

It seems that number in this case also includes Lucasfilm. Today the word on the interwebs is that Lando will soon be getting his own "Star Wars" spinoff.

"We think the next spin-off will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian". The smooth-talking, cape-wearing smuggler effortlessly steals every scene he's in, which is why the studio has chose to gift us all with a Lando spinoff movie. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and unsafe criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes. Although, it's so early that it's hard to be sure of any of that. The current rumor has been that an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie is already in pre-production, though that has never been confirmed.

He's also known by his musician name, Childish Gambino. 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.

Star Wars officials have clarified reports suggesting Donald Glover's character Lando Calrissian will become the subject of the next franchise prequel movie. We'll all get to find out for ourselves next week... Kathleen Kennedy says whether or not direct sequels to Solo happen will depend on audience response and box office success.

Donald Glover recently spoke about playing Lando.

The news hit headlines late on Tuesday (15May18) after Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy, who serves as a producer on the sci-fi series' latest big screen releases, attended the Cannes Film Festival premiere of the new Solo: A Star Wars Story, which focuses on the backstory of pilot Han Solo, played by Alden Ehrenreich. So, that may be next. You can read Premiere's explanation here.
