Star Wars: Lando Calrissian Movie is NOT Next Lucasfilm Project

Alden Ehrenreich is Han Solo in SOLO A STAR WARS STORY

He's got the number one song in America, he's hosted Saturday Night Live, he's released the hilarious second season of Atlanta, and now, he's starred in Solo: A Star Wars Story as Lando Calrissian. The possibilities are endless.

Without getting into spoiler territory, Solo does a solid job of introducing Lando Calrissian but does not focus on him or over-explain his mystique.

The concept of Daniels playing a human character in Solo is definitely an intriguing one. We should not expect that to change anytime soon.

With the assist of Google Translate, here's a rough translation of what she said: "There are still many stories to be told about Han and Chewbacca, but Lando will be next".

However, Lucasfilm later said that Kennedy had been misquoted. You want to hang with that dude.

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.

"Ron wanted to go back to the spirit of the original trilogy, while Phil and Chris were looking forward to something new, more like 'Guardians of the Galaxy, '" a person close to the "Solo" production told the Journal. Nearly like a 'Catch Me If You Can. Sources close to Lucasfilm tell IndieWire that there are no concrete plans for a Lando standalone film at this time but that the studio is eyeing numerous options for the future.

Solo now has a so-so critic score of 72% on Rotten Tomatoes. Down the line, we will more than likely see Lando in his own film, but it won't be the next Star Wars solo movie. We'll always show up for Han and Chewie, but the early buzz suggests Lucasfilm picked the wrong sidekick to take center stage. But we'll see what we get!

The star has had an incredible year.
