Take this with a huge pinch of salt right now, but there’s a new story out there claiming that Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian could be getting his own Disney+ series.
The source of this rumour is the Kessel Run Transmissions podcast, who have reported that Glover will pick up his Solo: A Star Wars Story role for his own Lando spin-off show.
While many didn’t feel the need for a movie giving Han Solo’s backstory, and the box office return was a disappointing one, there’s a good chunk of people out there who really enjoyed Solo. And given how the film ended, there were clearly plans in place to continue forward with the antics of Alden Ehrenreich’s Han.
After Solo took a $390 million box office haul from a bloated budget rumoured to be pushing the $280 million mark, that put paid to any plans for a Solo follow-up. Could we get to see this world expanded on the TV screen, though? If this latest rumour is to be believed, that could well be the case.
For what it’s worth, Disney has yet to comment on any of this, and the usual reliable sources have zero to report. That said, Kessel Run do have previous for breaking news, with them being the ones to first reveal that Disney+ would house a Clone Wars spin-off, The Bad Batch.
As mentioned, treat news of this Lando series as a rumour for now – but expect more on this as and when we get it.
