Default Lucasfilm Says Lando Spinoff Is Next






While Solo: A Star Wars Story is still a week away, Lucasfilm has seemingly already confirmed its next standalone movie, and it centers around the fan-favorite smuggler, Lando Calrissian.
Many reviews of Solo have pointed to Donald Glover's scene-stealing Lando as one of the highlights of the film, and it looks as though the studio agrees with the sentiment. During an interview with Premiere France, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that Lando will be getting his own Star Wars Story, and it sounds like the project has vaulted to the top of the studio's priorities.


"We think that the next spin-off will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian," Kennedy said. "Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca but Lando will be next."
Ever since Disney began distributing the Star Wars films in 2015, the standalone movies have alternated years with the newest trilogy in the Skywalker Saga. With Solo arriving this month, and Star Wars: Episode IXhitting theaters in 2019, the next available spot for the franchise is in 2020.

With the buzz surrounding Glover, not just as Lando but with his hit TV series, Atlanta, and global phenomenon music video, "This Is America," it would make sense for Lucasfilm to rush a Lando movie to the forefront of its production schedule. Seeing as how Glover always dreamed of playing the role, actively pursued it, and signed on for multiple movies with Lucasfilm, it's safe to say he's on board for a standalone adventure.
The only thing still left to determine here is what Kennedy meant by "next." She could have meant that it will be the next standalone film, meaning it will likely arrive in 2020. However, she could've also meant that it's the next movie going into production, which could see it hit theaters at any point over the next few years. The only other Star Wars Story that's been talked about is the standalone Obi-Wan Kenobi film.


Glover's take on the character in Solo will show how he first came into contact with Han Solo, but Lando first appeared in the Star Wars franchise nearly 40 years ago. Billy Dee Williams originally played the character in both The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

Everybody wants a Lando movie to happen, especially now that polymath Donald Glover is playing the character in Solo: A Star Wars Story. And it turns out, Donald Glover has an idea for a Lando movie himself, and it’s not what you’d expect – if Glover has his way, the Lando standalone film will be like Frasier in space
The moment Donald Glover was cast as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story, everyone had the same question: when will we get a Lando movie? Sure, everybody loves Han Solo, but when the first footage of Glover sporting some killer capes surfaced, the demand and excitement for a Lando movie only increased tenfold. There are no plans for a Lando movie yet, although Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has said such a movie might happen at some point.
So if a Lando movie happens, and if Donald Glover is involved, what would the movie be about? Glover has an idea, and it’s kind of surprising. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly Radio, Glover said he’d like a Lando movie that ends up being akin to “Frasier in space.” Yes, that’s right – Frasier, the Cheers spin-off that introduced the world to tossed salad and scrambled eggs.
This doesn’t mean Glover wants Lando to become a radio therapist who lives with his father and has a quippy relationship with his similarly-minded brother. Rather, Glover is talking about how refined, classy, and, well, snobby Lando can possibly be, which is somewhat similar to the character of Frasier Crane (sort of; kind of; just go with it). “It would be cool to see, like, Frasier in Space,” Glover said. “Like, a high-end guy in space. All of these characters are very specific and they have very specific points of view, so it’s always going to be fun to see them traveling around to a planet that is the opposite of what they’re used to … And all of that seems like it would be fun to write, for sure.”
Glover also added:
“I would love to do it again. It’s really fun. The movie, I feel like, is wide open. This part of the universe without the … I feel like with the Skywalkers, it’s hard, because it’s almost like the Bible. There’s a story that you have to tell, and the lineage of that family. I feel like out here its like, yeah, we’re just like hustlers and gamblers and space pirates, essentially, so you can do a lot more and have a lot more fun.”
Having seen Solo: A Star Wars Story, I can confirm that Glover is a lot of fun in the film. And I’d totally be up for a Lando movie – especially if it really does end up being Frasier in space.
