Lando: A Star Wars Story in development at Lucasfilm? Well, not quite

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".

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. But Solo ultimately goes down as a missed opportunity for the Star Wars franchise.

So far, the reviews for Solo: A Star Wars Story suggest that the movie isn't going to be the enormous disaster we all thought it might be. Lucasfilm cites translation issues between their president Kathleen Kennedy and the journalist from the French publication, Premiere.

"We would love to tell a story about Lando Calrissian one day, but this is not news", reads the corrected Kennedy quote.

What we know so far about Thandie Newton's character is that she is Val Beckett, Tobias' wife (Woody Harrelson) and a member of his crew with some serious blaster skills. The Lando hype continued as more teasers and stills were dropped, and according to critics who have seen the film already-including Vanity Fair's K. Austin Collins, Glover lives up to the hype.

Rogers said she works the graveyard shift as an EKG technician at a heart monitoring company and her husband is a tattoo artist. They uncovered "a long and continuous history of severe physical and emotional abuse", the police said in a written statement .

A new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. "It would also be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie".

One has to wonder what we did to deserve such an fantastic pair together in one place, in one movie. But another heist only makes sense for the character. It starts with the film's look, which is uncommonly dark, ugly, and doesn't look anything like a Star Wars movie.

We're just happy that we probably haven't seen the last of Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian.

How much do you trust Kathleen Kennedy's pronouncements about the future of Star Wars? But a movie focusing on Lando Calrrissian out on his own would be sublime.
