It’s all about the clickbait.

I think it is great news. Lando in Solo if nothing else was well cast, and Glover was great.
I still cannot get over them miscasting Han Solo though, it ruined the film for me. I kept comparing Alden to Harrison as unfair as that is. The end of Solo was very good though and i still think i would watch a sequel if Han became the Han we know.

To me, the best part of the film was Lando. Perfectly cast and well played. Since the film did so poorly, I gave up quickly on ever seeing him in the role again. This would be a must-watch for me. Plus it might be a way to see more of Enfys. She was my other favorite part of the film and more collateral damage. She could make an appearance in this once a season or so.

A Lando series would be more interesting to me than a Kenobi series. I think the Kenobi series could be great and I’d watch it, but Lando is a more interesting character to me. That said, if they put as much work into any of these TV shows as they have The Mandalorian, the franchise is is excellent shape. Maybe it’s time to move Star Wars to the small screen and go with story over spectacle.

Yeah Lando was a highlight. I wonder if they’ll do something post ROTJ with him.

The movie should have always been Lando in the first place, Donald Glover was reaching the peak of his fame, all stars aligned, for those that don’t remember This Is America dropped the same month as Solo. The character of Lando is much more flexible and organic to make a prequel about than Han who is more narratively fixed and tightly married to the specific mannerisms of Ford that made audiences reject Ehrenreich’s interpretation as cheap imitation.

Instead of a swashbuckling Lando adventure, I could go for a series where the first episode starts with Lando arriving at Cloud City, then continues in the style of Deep Space Nine and Babylon 5. The Empire Strikes Back would serve as closure for the series.
