Lando Might Be The Next Star Wars Spin-Off Movie

Emilia Clarke is tired of hearing female leads called “strong”

Talk that Glover-as-Lando's journey might continue was stirred on Wednesday, when French publication Premiere reported that Lucasfilm studio chief Kathleen Kennedy said Lando will get a spin-off.

Additionally, io9 heard from Lucasfilm as well, and the company's rep told them that Kennedy said it's something she'd like to do in the future.

For the time being however, it seems like the Obi-Wan Kenobi film is most likely set to become the third Anthology movie, with a recent report suggesting that it will shoot in 2019 for release in 2020.

Ever since Donald Glover's casting was announced for Solo, my first thought was, But what about a Lando movie?

The quote from Premiere reads as follows: "Nous adorerions raconter un jour une histoire consacrée à Lando Calrissian, mais ce n'est pas d'actualité".

Total halts $2 billion gas project in Iran
SP11 is the biggest proposed project between an worldwide oil company and Iran and if Total withdraws, it will likely deal a significant blow to Tehran.

We'll have to await more details surrounding a Lando Calrissian spin-off, but for now, it looks like we can expect Gambino's role in Star Wars to continue. Directed by Ron Howard, Solo is the second Star Wars spin-off following Rogue 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". The film dials back the clock to chronicle Han Solo during the early years of his life as he proves himself as a criminal and meets Chewbacca. They're joined by Thandie Newton as Val, Phoebe Waller-Bridge L3-37, Paul Bettany as Dryden Vos, and Woody Harrelson as Tobias Beckett.

Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is out on May 24.
