Solo: A Star Wars Story is a Missed Opportunity

Solo: A Star Wars Story is a Missed Opportunity

The critics have delivered their verdicts on Solo: A Star Wars Story. When Solo: A Star Wars Story was screened at the Cannes Film Festival last night, Newton came dressed in a custom Vivienne Westwood gown with action-figure likenesses of all the black Star Wars characters that have appeared on screen before her.

The quote was initially mistranslated and spread across the Internet as though a Lando film had already been officially confirmed-but representatives for Lucasfilm told Vanity Fair that there aren't any concrete plans just yet.

"We think that the next spinoff will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian".

With the assist of Google Translate, here's a rough translation of what she said: "There are still many stories to be told about Han and Chewbacca, but Lando will be next". But to no one's surprise, it has an 81% audience score. Fans expecting to have the nostalgia of the original trilogy stoked by movies like The Force Awakens, Rogue One, and The Last Jedi may not have gotten exactly what they hoped.

Solo is the first in a potential series of films, with Ehrenreich signing on for three instalments, although it's unclear whether that might include an appearance in a Lando movie.

What's great about Lando Calrissian is that there's still so much we don't know about him.

With Solo earning mixed reviews, it can't claim the title of the top-rated Star Wars movie, which still belongs to 1980's The Empire Strikes Back.

Meanwhile, there's also inspiration that can be drawn from a forthcoming Lando comic miniseries called Double or Nothing that features Donald Glover's likeness as Lando. Lando is on everyone's mind, so of course, she was asked about whether or not we'd see the character on his own solo adventure. "I'm the first woman of color to have a prominent role in the Star Wars legacy", she told Radio Times last month.
