Hello, what have we here? (we have a Lando movie here [maybe]) EDIT: IT'S NOT REAL, I AM AN APRIL FOOL

I figured if the still-unconfirmed Kenobi movie deserves its own thread, so does this.

According to SWNN, Black Panther and Creed director Ryan Coogler is in early talks for a Solo followup/spinoff focused on Donald Glover’s Lando.

How do we feel about this? Personally, I was more interested in a Lando movie than a Han one from the start, so I’m totally on board. As for Coogler, I thought Black Panther’s screenplay was kind of eh, but I liked the direction and (most of) the performances. I thought Creed had some similar issues, but I also walked away from that one feeling good on the whole. I think it’ll really come down to who works on the script, but as of now I don’t see any reason to feel uneasy about Coogler.

EDIT: there’s a vague Solo spoiler in the article, so if you want to go in completely cold, skip the fourth paragraph.

April’s fool? (Sadly)

Han: Hey Lando! You kept your promise, right? Not a scratch?
Lando: Well, what’s left of her isn’t scratched. All the scratched parts got knocked off along the way.
Han (exasperated): Knocked off?!

Oh god damn it, I just actually saw the URL and you’re probably right. Joke posts shouldn’t be this plausible!

At this point they could say the next spinoff was going to be a Taika Waititi film called Jizz Wailing Nights - A Max Rebo Story, and it would still be plausible.

In all seriousness though, I’d really prefer a Lando movie to the Kenobi and Yoda ideas that get thrown around a lot. I think it would be cool to spin Solo into a sort of loose “scoundrel-verse” series. Could roll the theoretical Boba Fett movie in there too.

Elan Sleazebaggano movie or bust.

Doubt thou the stars are fire,
Doubt that the sun doth move,
Doubt truth to be a liar,
But never doubt I love.
