Kathleen Kennedy Says a Lando Spinoff—A.K.A. the Only One We Really Want—Is Totally Possible

But it's not confirmed ... yet.

Ever since Donald Glover's casting was announced for Solo, my first thought was, But what about a Lando movie? Turns out, Kathleen Kennedy and Lucasfilm's answer to that, despite being partly lost in translation, is: Sure.

Solo Clip Features Our Favorite Things About the Movie: Lando and Possibly the Best Star Wars Retcon

We're (some of us, anyway) still wary of the Han Solo movie arriving in theaters later this month, especially after its directorial troubles—though Ron Howard's hands are about the safest you can be in. That doesn't mean there aren't parts of it we're excited about, though, and topping that list is Donald Glover appearing as Lando Calrissian, bringing the original trilogy character back to the screen for the first time since Return of the Jedi.

I Really Hope Mark Hamill Is Kidding About This Solo: A Star Wars Story Cameo

Mark Hamill has a history of not only keeping tight-lipped about secrets, but of actively trolling fans, all in good fun. He knows what people are expecting, which means he knows exactly the right buttons to push. He's like the boy who cried spoiler, at this point, and I'm honestly really hoping that's all he was doing in his latest seeming slip of the tongue.

The Spiritual Successor to Star Wars Rebels Sounds Like the Perfect Followup

I have a good feeling about this.

When fan favorite Star Wars animated series Star Wars Rebels recently ended, the question on everyone's mind was where the franchise would go next in its animated endeavors. If Disney wanted to recreated the magic of Rebels, though, there was a pretty obvious analogue that would have the added bonus of tying in more closely with the ongoing movie trilogy, and that's where they've decided to go with Star Wars Resistance.

Things We Saw Today: Have You Seen These Awesome Star Wars Rey Scavenger Boots?

I'm not a cosplayer, so I'm not generally in the market for screen-accurate costume pieces as such. However, I am a geek, and I do love fashion that recalls a character in a TV show or film without being too obvious about it. The Rey-inspired Scavenger boots from Po-Zu’s officially licensed Star Wars shoe collection are totally my jam.

Even Mark Hamill’s Not Sure Where Star Wars Should Go Without Carrie Fisher

It's just a garbage world to live in where Carrie Fisher does not get to take her final curtain call in Star Wars: Episode IX, as Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill already got to do with their beloved characters—possible Force ghosts notwithstanding. But that's where we are, and that already difficult circumstance is compounded, for those behind the scenes, by the question of where things go from here, with another movie—one intended to include Fisher and Leia—still on the horizon.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Director Rian Johnson, who's embarking on a new journey to create an entirely new Star Wars story in his very own trilogy, isn't wrong that Star Wars movies—and every other piece of Star Wars media—tend to receive a very strong response.
