DisneySolo A Star Wars Story a new cast of characters brings Han Solo's origin story to life

Solo A Star Wars Story

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.

While speaking with Premiere France at the Cannes Film Festival (translation via IndieWire), Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy teased a film centered on the charming smuggler. "However, a misunderstanding occurred between the reporter and Kennedy, and Lucasfilm stresses that this project won't be the next spinoff, only that "[Kennedy] said it's something she'd like to do one day in the future".

There is of course a lot of excitement surrounding Glover's portrayal of the smoothest swindler in the galaxy, so if Solo is well received and Glover lives up to expectations, don't be surprised if we do get Lando: A Star Wars Story at some point in the future.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is still a little over a week away from hitting theaters, but the first reviews hit the web yesterday, and you'll find that one character everyone can't stop raving about is Lando Calrissian. "It would also be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie..." . "When they called me up there, I said, 'I don't know if I'm up for a fourth Star Wars movie, ' and they said, 'Well, what if it was Han?'"

It sounds like the possibility of a series of movies focusing on Han Solo and Chewbacca was long in the works, as cowriter and Star Wars legend Lawrence Kasdan told ComicBook.com last week. But maybe that's good news for Obi-Wan? According to sources and head honcho Kathleen Kennedy herself, the next step may be a Lando Calrissian spinoff tale.

Do you want to see a Lando movie?

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.

Right now, Donald Glover is absolutely on fire and he's being singled out as the best thing about Solo.
