Rejoice, fans: Lando: A Star Wars Story is probably happening

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". Since the news first came out, Lucasfilm has commented about this news to Premiere: "We would love to tell a story about Lando Calrissian one day, but it's not relevant, it would be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie". Long story short, we got our Lando hopes up for nothing.

Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy.

Sure, the vast majority of audiences all over the world have yet to see Solo: A Star Wars Story, but Lucasfilm is already betting big on Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian.

For the time being however, it seems like the Obi-Wan Kenobi film is most likely set to become the third Anthology movie, with a recent report suggesting that it will shoot in 2019 for release in 2020. However, Lucasfilm reps quickly squashed all of these stories and confirmed Kathleen Kennedy never said any such thing.

"George [Lucas] and [Kathleen Kennedy] had decided that, as the company went on without George, and Kathy would run it, that part of what they were going to do was continue the Star Wars movies, and they had an idea for a bunch of 'em", Lawrence said.

"I was trying to get them in the movie, you know, very hard", Kasdan told ScreenRant.

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.
