Lando Calrissian spin-off reports downplayed by Star Wars officials

The new film is filled with adventure and both Ehrenreich and Glover live up to their predecessors Harrison Ford and Billy Dee Williams.

Watch the new trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story and see it in theaters May 25.

"We think that the next spin-off will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian", read a translation of her comments.

She added: 'Of course, there are still so many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca but Lando will be next'.

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. But we hope that decision ends up being the one Lucasfilm makes. Some scenes-especially the ones shot in extreme close-up of every actor's face-certainly feel like Howard, while others, in which the colors on screen are so dark that you can't see anyone's facial expressions, feel like reshoot salvage jobs. But Solo ultimately goes down as a missed opportunity for the Star Wars franchise.

What we know so far about Thandie Newton's character is that she is Val Beckett, Tobias' wife (Woody Harrelson) and a member of his crew with some serious blaster skills. "It would also be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie".

"Although the end result will not likely find itself occupying an upper berth in the Star Wars movie pantheon, there's enough here to satisfy the fan base and give Disney a very strong turnout (it received its Cannes premiere on Tuesday) when it opens Memorial Day weekend".

The general public still hasn't had its say, and as the likes of last year's Star Wars: The Last Jedi show, critics and fans can have polar-opposite opinions about what ticks the boxes for a Star Wars movie.

And for those interested in how Solo stacks up, Ron Howard's origin story is by no means the highest-rated Star Wars film on RT - that distinction belongs to 1980's Empire Strikes Back, which still boasts a score of 95 percent even after all these years.
