Solo Star Wars Story Darth Maul and Boba Fett cameo rumours

Speaking with Premiere France at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of "Solo: A Star Wars Story", Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy teased that a standalone Lando movie is being planned for the "Star Wars" movie universe following Glover's introduction to the franchise in "Solo". This translates to: "We would love to tell one day a story dedicated to Lando Calrissian, but that is not topical*".

Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy.

Premiere blames a miscommunication between Kennedy and the interviewer for the previous erroneous quote.

If a Lando film moves forward, what story would you like it to tell?

The fact that Kennedy seems open to future films focused on the young Han Solo and his co-pilot Chewbacca won't be surprising to fans once Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters.

What Kennedy actually said was Lucasfilm would love to eventually make a Lando spin-off one day, but this is now not a priority. The next Star Wars spinoff will be about Lando Calrissian.

However, Lucasfilm later said that Kennedy had been misquoted. While many outlets are reporting that the movie will begin shooting in January 2019, Fantha Tracks is reporting that the Obi-Wan movie is now in pre-production and will begin shooting in April 2019, with a December 2020 release date.

Ever since Donald Glover's casting was announced for Solo, my first thought was, But what about a Lando movie?

Right now, Donald Glover is absolutely on fire and he's being singled out as the best thing about Solo.

We receive a little taste of it within the Lando Marvel Comics series, which is second only to both Darth Vader run.
