Lucasfilm Shoots Down Report About Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian Spinoff Film

Alden Ehrenreich is Han Solo and Joonas Suotamo is Chewbacca in “Solo A Star Wars Story.”

Emilia Clarke is tired of hearing female leads called “strong”

On Thursday, May 10, the stars of Solo: A Star Wars Story - including Emilia Clarke, who plays Qi'ra - walked the red carpet for the film's Hollywood premiere. But to no one's surprise, it has an 81% audience score.

Excitement for the film is growing, and United Kingdom fans will get to see Solo: A Star Wars Story a day earlier than everyone else, with it set to hit cinemas on 24 May. A strong cast and the beginnings of a compelling story are wasted by what is, whichever director or directors is responsible, some of the worst filmmaking in Star Wars history.

UPDATED 11:38 a.m. ET: It turns out Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian isn't getting his own film after all.

Solo is the first in a potential series of films, with Ehrenreich signing on for three instalments, although it's unclear whether that might include an appearance in a Lando movie.

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.

With Solo earning mixed reviews, it can't claim the title of the top-rated Star Wars movie, which still belongs to 1980's The Empire Strikes Back.

A new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy.

A recent comic book miniseries focusing on Lando Calrissian began in 2015, which could provide some interesting inspiration for a Lando movie. 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.

You have to admit, people are extremely apprehensive that this 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' is going to be good. It starts with the film's look, which is uncommonly dark, ugly, and doesn't look anything like a Star Wars movie.

And, finally, just because it's fantastic and awesome, here is a photo of Newton standing with Glover, the young Lando himself.
