Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and risky criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes.

How much do you trust Kathleen Kennedy's pronouncements about the future of Star Wars?

Rumor started this morning of a Lando Calrissian movie as foretold by Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy.

Update: io9 reports that Lucasfilm now says that the quote may not be entirely accurate, but didn't deny the possibility of the Lando movie outright.

Styles ended up sleeping on a mattress in Winston's attic for 20 months. "That period of time, he was living with us in the most mundane suburban situation".

The publication also goes on to state that while the film is not receiving the best reviews from critics, Glover's performance has stood out and been one of the finer points of the film. Even Premiere and ComicBook both note the long-gestating chatter around an Obi-Wan film. "And he was like, 'I hear you; I don't like your odds.' And that was exactly what I needed to hear". "And I think that if there's ever another one of these, you're going to have to either kill me or Bossk will be in it".

"First of all I'm dying to see a Lando film". But we hope that decision ends up being the one Lucasfilm makes. "It would be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie".

Meanwhile, Ehrenreich has revealed that he is under contract for two more "Star Wars" films, meaning his Han Solo could very well appear in a future Lando standalone film. But a movie focusing on Lando Calrrissian out on his own would be sublime.

A Lando fan as a child, Glover said he was determined to land the role, despite the seemingly slim chances. That's just speculation on our part, but since Lando gets such a great introduction in Solo, it feels silly to redo that with his own origin story.
