No, the Next STAR WARS Spin-Off Won't Focus on LANDO CALRISSIAN

Ron Howard reveals he turned down Star Wars The Phantom Menace in a car park

Consequently, the big brass at Disney/Lucasfilm appears to acknowledge those shifting winds.

Lucasfilm studio chief Kathleen Kennedy told the outlet earlier today (May 16) that the studio will be targeting Lando as the next character from the popular franchise to land their own spin-off film. There, Kennedy teased (with a fair amount of certainty) the identity of the next character to receive the spinoff treatment.

That means that Lando Calrissian might also be attracted to aliens and robots, though we'll have to imagine it, unless Glover's portrayal hints at his pansexuality in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Solo: A Star Wars Story arrιves in theaters May 25, 2018. But first they need a ship, and this is where Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) comes into the picture.

"I told my agent, I was like, if they're making a Han Solo movie, Lando's got to be in it and I want to be Lando", Donald told late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel.

However, Lucasfilm later said that Kennedy had been misquoted. However, apparently there was a miscommunication, and Solo co-writer Jonathan Kasdan has clarified that rather than getting his Wookiee on, Daniels is actually playing a human character who has screen time with Chewbacca and this other Wookiee.

Thanks to AquilaSPQR on the Star Wars Leaks subReddit, we now have our first look at the top-secret villain for Solo: A Star Wars Story.

"I'm lucky because I know nothing about the Expanded Universe". This is a film that enriches the Star Wars experience, it doesn't ruin it - and for that we're eternally grateful, and really rather hopeful now of a sequel.

Directed by veteran helmer Ron Howard, Solo features an all-star cast, including, Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, and Paul Bettany. 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.
