LucasFilm's Keen For A Lando Spin-Off, So Prep For Maximum Donald Glover

"Solo: A Star Wars Story" doesn't even open until Friday, but those who've already seen it are wondering just what's up with the sexuality of Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) in the long-awaited prequel.

When that might happen, though, is unknown. At the Cannes Film Festival, Kathleen Kennedy told Premiere France (with a hat tip to ComicBook) that yes, Lucasfilm's thinking has expanded to include the possibility of a Lando Calrissian solo movie.

Following the publication of our article, Lucasfilm informs us that there would have been a misunderstanding between our journalist and Kathleen Kennedy.

Lucasfilm did not immediately respond to a request for comment. John Boyega, for example, teased that we'd see a longer gap in time between the end of the last movie and the start of the new film, requiring his hair to be longer. She recently told French magazine Premiere that giving Calrissian a spin-off movie is certainly something she's thought about. Next year, we'll get Episode IX, then maybe an Obi-Wan solo movie after that.

Solo: A Star Wars Story will be Disney's second standalone Star Wars film, following 2016's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Played by Glover as equal parts suave hustler and foppish brat, Lando gets all of the film's best laughs - "No!" It's going to be Solo: A Star Wars Story and it has nothing to do with the story.

The Star Wars series' Lando Calrissian has always been known as the single sexiest figure in the movies' universe - and apparently, his passion knows no limits, baby. While many outlets are reporting that the movie will begin shooting in January 2019, Fantha Tracks is reporting that the Obi-Wan movie is now in pre-production and will begin shooting in April 2019, with a December 2020 release date. "I'm a fan first and foremost before I'm an actor in this", he said.
