Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian to get his own Star Wars spin-off movie

When that might happen, though, is unknown.

Han Solo premiers at the Cannes Film Festival, and while speaking with Premiere, LucasFilm president Kathleen Kennedy confirms a Lando Calrissian movie.

What Kennedy actually said was Lucasfilm would love to eventually make a Lando spin-off one day, but this is now not a priority.

Lucasfilm did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"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".

In the upcoming Solo, Donald Glover's overly flirty Lando doesn't really limit himself to one gender, or even species for that matter, which has been confirmed by Jonathon Kasdan. Two years later, Star Wars, Last Jedi premiered and it was shamed for straying away from the source material.

There has been some talk about Lando Calrissian's sexuality in Solo after droid L3-37 jokes that Lando and Han are flirting in some promotional footage. If you're in charge of making Star Wars movies and you have him under contract, how do you not look to build around it, maybe even offering him the writer credit and his choice of director?

"There's a line that [Jon Favreau's character, Rio] has where he's asking Han about the girl that he left behind, and he says, 'Does she have big teeth?'" Jonathan Kasdan explains.

The latest round of "Star Wars" films have also inspired fans to "ship" the characters played by Oscar Isaac and John Boyega, though Poe and Finn have yet to consummate that would-be relationship onscreen. The Ron Howard-directed movie stars Glover alongside Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Joonas Suotamo. What character would you most like to see from any era in their own standalone film?

Lando Calrissian is pansexual, Solo: A Star Wars Story screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan revealed.
