Will the next Star Wars spin-off focus on Lando?

Will the next Star Wars spin-off focus on Lando?

The general public still hasn't had its say, and as the likes of last year's Star Wars: The Last Jedi show, critics and fans can have polar-opposite opinions about what ticks the boxes for a Star Wars movie.

Glover's star power is on the increase as his single This Is America, released as Childish Gambino, arrived in the U.S. charts at number one.

The beauty portrays interstellar criminal Val in director Ron Howard's new Han Solo spin-off, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and she donned a stellar couture Vivienne Westwood dress to attend the screening on the French Riviera.

Everyone thought Kathleen Kennedy - the head of Lucasfilm - confirmed a definitive plan.

Speaking in an interview with Premiere France, she said that a new instalment could centre around Glover's Calrissian. But to no one's surprise, it has an 81% audience score.

Childish Gambino's 'Star Wars' Character Will Get Spin-Off Film

The interaction between Donald Glover's Lando and Alden Ehrenreich's Han Solo looks like just how I would imagine it.

Thandie Newton is making history by being the first black woman to play a leading role in a Star Wars film, but that doesn't mean that she's forgetting those who came before her. The Lando hype continued as more teasers and stills were dropped, and according to critics who have seen the film already-including Vanity Fair's K. Austin Collins, Glover lives up to the hype. So seeing these characters represented in such an inventive way is an exciting emphasis on calling out their presence while commenting on diversity in the saga.

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.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is still a little over a week away from hitting theaters, but the first reviews hit the web yesterday, and you'll find that one character everyone can't stop raving about is Lando Calrissian.
