Donald Glover, the multi-hyphenate behind Atlanta, Childish Gambino, mc DJ, and Simba on the upcoming Lion King remake, may have landed his own Star Wars spin-off if reports are to be believed.

There, Kennedy teased (with a fair amount of certainty) the identity of the next character to receive the spinoff treatment. "Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca but Lando will be next".

Well look, it's hardly as definitive as the original GUYS LANDO'S MOVE WILL DEFINITELY BE NEXT angle that Premiere France gleefully went to press with, but we'll take it. "It would be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie..." "To his credit, and I appreciate it, he was like, "I don't like your odds", which was awesome because I was like, "I'm gonna get this".
