Is Donald Glover getting his own Star Wars spin-off?

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

Solo: A Star Wars story screened at Cannes, starring Donald Glover, is snatching all the headlines for the work he's done in the film (not to mention his music video), but today we're shining the spotlight on the awesome Ms. Thandie Newton!

After its opening at Cannes Film Festival, it's looking like Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy has potential spin-offs in mind.

Donald Glover, the multi-hyphenate behind Atlanta, Childish Gambino, mc DJ, and Simba on the upcoming Lion King remake, may have landed his own Star Wars spin-off if reports are to be believed.

Unfortunately, Premiere France got Kennedy's words a little mixed up in translation in their original story and quoted her as saying: "Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca".

However, as fans began celebrating the news on social media, a LucasFilm representative was forced to clear up the claims, insisting Kennedy's remarks had not been accurately translated.

Lando Calrissian may soon be going solo.

Taking place approximately a decade before A New Hope, Solo: A Star Wars Story will chronicle Han Solo attempting to make a name for himself in the galaxy far, far away's criminal underworld.

That being said, early reviews of "Solo" have offered praise for what some are describing as a scene-stealing performance by Glover as Lando, who is at various times both friend and foe to space smuggler Han Solo.

Star Wars Celebration has been running intermittently since 1999, just before the first prequel movie "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace" was released into theaters.
