Comments made by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy to Premiere France at the Cannes film festival sparked a fleury of news stories claiming that Lando Calrissian will be the next Star Wars character to get his own spin-off.
“We think that the next spinoff will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian. Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca but Lando will be next,” Kennedy said before the premiere of the latest Lucasfilm movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Unfortunately for fans who want to see more of Donald Glover's rendition of a young Lando, they might have to wait. Lucasfilm told iO9 that Kennedy's comments were lost in translation. A representative said that "[Kennedy] said it’s something she’d like to do one day in the future,” not something that is currently slated to happen.
Early reviews for the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story have been mixed. Many reviewers said they thought the movie was good but that it does not live up to the previous Star Wars movies released by Disney.
The movie will hit theaters on May 25th.
