Kathleen Kennedy Says A Lando Calrissian ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff Is “Next”
Ron Howard has talked about sequels (it depends on how the audience reacts to ‘Solo’ and how much money it makes) and the entire cast is signed on for at least three movies). So what’s next for Lucasfilm? Well, there are rumors, unsubstantiated as of right now it should be said, that an ‘Obi-Wan‘ film shoots in the spring of 2019 (still unclear whether Ewan McGregor will star). And there’s been talk of the Simon Kinberg-penned and dormant ‘Boba Fett‘ movie coming back too.
But Kathleen Kennedy herself has revealed what’s apparently “next,” and it’s a Lando Calrissian solo film that would star Donald Glover. “We think that the next spin-off will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian, ” Kennedy told Premiere France. ” Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca, but Lando will be next.”
This would be pretty big news considering that (not a spoiler because we know they’re signed on for multiple films) that ‘Solo’ sets up potential sequels and many expect the Obi-Wan Kenobi movie to shoot next. But Donald Glover is signed up for more films, and perhaps Lucasfilm wants their own “Black Panther” and a film that serves the African American audience that will clearly come out in droves if they’re given a good movie.
