Turns out, Kathleen Kennedy and Lucasfilm's answer to that, despite being partly lost in translation, is: Sure.

"We would love to tell a story about Lando Calrissian one day, but this is not news", Kennedy said.

Lando Calrissian, the smoothest smuggler in the galaxy, may be the subject of the next Star Wars stand alone movie.

As host, he was there to promote his role as young Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

'We think that the next spinoff will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian, ' the producer and film exec told France's Premiere.

Trump repaid attorney Cohen for 'third party' expense - disclosure

Solo doesn't hit theaters for another week, but the next Star Wars spin-off may have already been revealed. It seems a misunderstanding took place and, while a Lando movie is "something [Kathleen Kennedy would] like to do one day in the future" it's not next on the agenda.

Not only is Glover's Lando getting a lot of hype, but the actor-writer-director-musician is a huge deal right now outside of Star Wars and is one of the most talented creatives around.

While rumors about future standalone films are plentiful - including buzz about a Boba Fett film and an Obi-Wan Kenobi film - Disney/Lucasfilm has yet to confirm them. "It would be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie". However, Lucasfilm reps quickly squashed all of these stories and confirmed Kathleen Kennedy never said any such thing.

Meanwhile, there's also inspiration that can be drawn from a forthcoming Lando comic miniseries called Double or Nothing that features Donald Glover's likeness as Lando.

However, Lucasfilm told io9 shortly after this quote started making the rounds online that the quote in question from the French magazine was not translated correctly.
