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.

During the quarter, Macy's also made $24 million in gains on real estate sales and spent $19 million winding down Macy's China. The retailer's 4.2 per cent rise in same-store sales in the first quarter easily topped Wall Street's 1.4 per cent estimate .

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.
