Childish Gambino to star in "Star Wars" spin-off film

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

His debut performance as Lando will be in Solo: A Star Wars Story, as he takes on the role made famous by Billy Dee Williams.

With the assist of Google Translate, here's a rough translation of what she said: "There are still many stories to be told about Han and Chewbacca, but Lando will be next". "My dad imprinted me with this kind of Star Wars longing, because it does feel like the Bible to me in a lot of ways".

From day one, the consensus of Star Wars fans was onboard when Lucasfilm announced that Donald Glover would play a young Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story. According to Premiere (via CinemaBlend), Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy spoke about the plans for a Lando-centric film in the near future.

Since 2017, an Obi-Wan movie has been reportedly in the works at Lucas.

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.

NASA's MarCO-B CubeSat Captures Earth-Moon Image
NASA has always been able to check out Mars on the ground with rovers and landers and from far above with orbital spacecraft. Earlier this week, they also proved the concept of small robotic satellites might be a game changer.

Lucasfilm told Polygon Wednesday that a Lando spinoff would be something they'd like to do in the future, but it's not necessarily the next movie in the pipeline.

Without getting into spoiler territory, Solo does a solid job of introducing Lando Calrissian but does not focus on him or over-explain his mystique. Directed by Ron Howard, Solo is the second Star Wars spin-off following Rogue One.

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.

A new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Next year, we'll get Episode IX, then maybe an Obi-Wan solo movie after that.

Solo: A Star Wars Story arrιves in theaters May 25, 2018.
