Rumor started this morning of a Lando Calrissian movie as foretold by Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy. "Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca, but Lando will be next", she said.

Written by Lawrence Kasdan and his son Jon, Solo: A Star Wars Story also stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Paul Bettany and Ian Kenny.
