Childish Gambino to star in "Star Wars" spin-off film

LUCASFILMStar Wars Solo movie Harrison Ford REVEALS his reaction – WATCH

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy recently told Premiere France that Lando's story is likely the next Star Wars spin-off film. Turns out, Kathleen Kennedy and Lucasfilm's answer to that, despite being partly lost in translation, is: Sure. His debut performance as Lando will be in Solo: A Star Wars Story, as he takes on the role made famous by Billy Dee Williams. "My dad imprinted me with this kind of Star Wars longing, because it does feel like the Bible to me in a lot of ways".

Speaking yesterday, Kennedy said - according to Business Insider: "We think that the next spin-off will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian". The decision to explore Lando's story is the right one, and not a surprising one.

USA Today said: "While Solo is a Star Wars movie that gambles on not really being a Star Wars movie, it's a winning chapter that only sparingly (though intriguingly) shows its hand in connecting to the bigger universe".

Even Jonathan Kasdan, the film's co-writer and die-hard Star Wars aficionado, spoke about his plans for a possible sequel involving bounty hunters, as he tried to include them in the new movie.

A recent comic book miniseries focusing on Lando Calrissian began in 2015, which could provide some interesting inspiration for a Lando movie. "It would be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie".

Update: io9 reports that Lucasfilm now says that the quote may not be entirely accurate, but didn't deny the possibility of the Lando movie outright.

Meanwhile, there's also inspiration that can be drawn from a forthcoming Lando comic miniseries called Double or Nothing that features Donald Glover's likeness as Lando. More Donald Glover makes the galaxy a better place for us all.
