Next Star Wars Spinoff Announced

Lucasfilm

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. The publication quoted Kennedy stating that Lando's story would be the next one to be told in the franchise.

Lucasfilm has confirmed they're considering a Lando Calrissian spinoff. She recently told French magazine Premiere that giving Calrissian a spin-off movie is certainly something she's thought about.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is making its own Kessel Run toward theaters on May 25.

"(Kennedy) said it's something she'd like to do one day in the future", the spokesperson tells Entertainment Weekly.

LucasFilm have always been rumoured to be planning sequels for Solo, but it presumably depends on how the movie fares at the box office when it opens later this month.

The concept of Daniels playing a human character in Solo is definitely an intriguing one.

Without spoiling Solo: A Star Wars Story, there are a couple threads left dangling that could lead to possible sequels featuring Han Solo and Chewbacca. If you're in charge of making Star Wars movies and you have him under contract, how do you not look to build around it, maybe even offering him the writer credit and his choice of director? "It would also be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie..." . The actor, who is set to make his galactic debut in Solo: A Star Wars Story as a prequel-era Lando Calrissian, could perhaps one day be the next star to anchor his own spin-off film, according to Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy. Long story short, we got our Lando hopes up for nothing.

The next Star Wars movie in cinemas will be the very highly anticipated Episode 9 in 2019. I've literally not seen the movie yet so I don't know about the amount of Lando within, but I assume there's a lot yet never enough, if you know what I mean.
