Donald Glover Might Get His Own 'Star Wars' Film One Day

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has been making the publicity rounds for Solo in the wake of the world premiere in Los Angeles and the Cannes Film Festival screening earlier this week.

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".

UPDATE (11:40 a.m. ET): Lucasfilm has issued a statement clarifying that something was lost in translation, and that Kathleen Kennedy told the French magazine a Lando spinoff is "something she'd like to do one day in the future". Lucasfilm has been rather cagey regarding the potential projects they're contemplating.

I have not seen Solo yet, but simply based on the footage in the trailers, Donald Glover has mastered the charm of Billy Dee Williams. Even Premiere and ComicBook both note the long-gestating chatter around an Obi-Wan film. 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. "I'm a fan first and foremost before I'm an actor in this", he said. It's possible, but I don't see it coming out anytime soon.

Donald Glover recently spoke about playing Lando. IGN takes the praise even further stating that "Glover captures the duplicity and bravado of the best-dressed rogue in the franchise, while also revealing a surprisingly tender side at one key point in the film". I've literally not seen the movie yet so I don't know about the amount of Lando within, but I assume there's a lot yet never enough, if you know what I mean. But a movie focusing on Lando Calrrissian out on his own would be sublime.

But if Glover did get his own Star Wars movie, would anyone be surprised?
