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

Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo in Solo A Star Wars Story

"'We would love to tell a story about Lando Calrissian one day, but this is not news'".

It sounds like the possibility of a series of movies focusing on Han Solo and Chewbacca was long in the works, as cowriter and Star Wars legend Lawrence Kasdan told ComicBook.com last week.

Premiere blames a miscommunication between Kennedy and the interviewer for the previous erroneous quote. President of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, spoke to the publication at the Cannes film festival.

"We think the next Star Wars spin-off will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian".

More rain, more flooding forecast for Fairfax
Over in northern Idaho, Lake Pend Oreille (pawn'-duh-ray) is expected to reach flood stage on Thursday. Meteorologist Ryan Leach said that the river will be at flood stage for weeks to come.

Donald Glover could be spending a lot more time as Lando Calrissian.

We'll have to await more details surrounding a Lando Calrissian spin-off, but for now, it looks like we can expect Gambino's role in Star Wars to continue.

"UPDATE: io9 contacted Lucasfilm and confirmed that the quote wasn't translated correctly, with a rep saying: "[Kennedy] said it's something she'd like to do one day in the future".

However, Lucasfilm later said that Kennedy had been misquoted.

Summits are underway every day since May 13 after the eight rope-fixing team members opened the climbing route for all climbers. A guide for more than two decades, he broke the previous record of 21 summits that he shared with two other Sherpas.

He's not even hit the big screen in that dashing cape and riding boot combo, but Donald Gloover best get the deck stacked in Lando Calrissian's favour - both on and off screen. Sure, his reputation as one of the smoothest motherfuckers in the galaxy must play a part, but there's so much left to explore about his life.

So what sort of schedule can we expect if Lando is suddenly next in the pipeline?

It's nearly a no brainer to give the character and actor combination of Lando Calrissian and Donald Glover a shot at headlining a movie sometime down the line.

Solo: A Star Wars Story arrιves in theaters May 25, 2018. But a movie focusing on Lando Calrrissian out on his own would be sublime.
