Lucasfilm denies that a Lando Calrissian movie is in the works (UPDATE)
From Première (translation by Naboo News):
“After the publication of our article, Lucasfilm informs us that there is a translation error in our interview with Kathleen Kennedy. The following text has therefore been corrected.
Solo: A Star Wars Story stormed the Cannes Film Festival yesterday, with the screening of the movie in grand style, followed by monumental fireworks. The entire crew of the Star Wars spin-off dedicated to Han Solo was present on La Croisette, including the almighty Lucasfilm president, Kathleen Kennedy, with whom we had the opportunity to talk. Even though the rumor on another spin-off dedicated to Obi-wan is in the air, the producer mentioned other characters: “We’d love to tell a story dedicated to Lando Calrissian someday, but that’s not on the table. It would also be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie…””
Here is the original “uncorrected” quote:
“We think the next spin-off will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian. Of course, there are much more stories on Han and Chewbacca to tell, but Lando will be next.”
