Lucasfilm Would Love to Eventually Make a Lando Spinoff

Alden Ehrenreich is receiving plenty of plaudits for his performance in Solo A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars story screened at Cannes, starring Donald Glover, is snatching all the headlines for the work he's done in the film (not to mention his music video), but today we're shining the spotlight on the fantastic Ms. Thandie Newton!

While speaking with Premiere France at the Cannes Film Festival (translation via IndieWire), Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy teased a film centered on the charming smuggler.

Donald Glover, the multi-hyphenate behind Atlanta, Childish Gambino, mc DJ, and Simba on the upcoming Lion King remake, may have landed his own Star Wars spin-off if reports are to be believed. Which, admittedly, aren't many, even with Donald Glover reprising Billy Dee Williams' caped mantle as Lando Calrissian.

Lewis Hamilton: 'Mercedes chiefs want me to stay'
Hamilton now leads Vettel by 17 points in the drivers' standings, with Bottas in third place, 20 points behind the Ferrari . He added: "The pressure and the passion that I have to win this championship are far greater than I've ever had it".

"But LucasFilm has since corrected the quote, with a rep telling Gizmodo "[Kennedy] said it's something she'd like to do one day in the future". "It would be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie..."

Along with meeting familiar faces like Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian for the first time, Solo will also see the eponymous protagonist crossing paths with new characters like Qi'ra, Tobias Beckett, Val, L3-37 and Dryden Vos. "To his credit, and I appreciate it, he was like, "I don't like your odds", which was awesome because I was like, "I'm gonna get this".

"Solo: A Star Wars Story" features Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo and chronicles his life prior to the events featured in 1977's original "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope".
