This translates to: "We would love to tell one day a story dedicated to Lando Calrissian, but that is not topical*".

"When I heard they were making these, I told my agent "if they're making anything with Lando in it, I have to be Lando" and he was like, 'I hear you; I don't like your odds.' And that was exactly what I needed to hear". As i09 reported, Lucasfilm requested a revision, and the above quote was the result.

UPDATE: In the time since the story was originally published, LucasFilm reached out to Premiere and offered a clarification of Kathleen Kennedy's quote, saying Star Wars is interested in making a Lando movie when it's relevant.

As it is, Solo: A Star Wars Story, which will launch Glover in the role premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday night.

While doubts have swirled around Alden Ehrenreich, who takes on the title character, along with behind-the-scenes issues and questions as to the "point" of the movie, Glover's Lando has looked every bit as cool and charming as Billy Dee Williams' version, something the reviews have since confirmed. The first was 2015's "Rogue One". While that would make a hell of a movie, it's a story that's already been told, so it's not likely to head to the big screen.

Donald Glover proves that even in a galaxy far, far away he's a superstar.

In a recent interview with Uproxx, writer Lawrence Kasdan revealed that Daniels will instead portray a Wookiee who joins forces with Chewbacca in the spice mines of the planet Kessel (a place, fittingly, that C-3PO feared in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope).
