Lando: A Star Wars Story in development at Lucasfilm? Well, not quite

Solo's rapport with Lando, whose younger self is revealed as something of a robo-sexual, is the most winning through line of Howard and the Kasdans' approach. Han's Dickensian youth just doesn't carry as much weight as the storytellers might have imagined.
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. There's probably a whole trilogy's worth of adventures of Woody Harrelson's Tobias Beckett, a gun-twirling outlaw with unfathomable debts to repay to particularly risky people. The role is not dissimilar from those Harrelson previously played in the Hunger Games franchise or Zombieland. By his side is Thandie Newton as Val. Jon Favreau voices the multi-limbed Ardennian pilot Rio Durant, who takes an instant liking to Han. Han wants to leave with his girlfriend, Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke), but is essentially enslaved by his leader, Lady Proxima (Linda Hunt). The movie flirts with the idea of her being a darker character ("a survivor") but it never fully commits to that arc, making for a frustrating and disappointing resolution to her and Han's storyline.

That Solo, the second of these "Star WarsStories", isn't a face-plant is a miracle unto itself, but that doesn't mean it escapes the trappings of its premise.
The more you remember from the original movies, the more ingenious this maneuver is: spinning the sow's ear of Lucas's casually racist outer-space evocations into a silk purse of 21st-century populism, complete with shout-outs to anticolonial freedom struggles and against arms trafficking. While that would make a hell of a movie, it's a story that's already been told, so it's not likely to head to the big screen.
Donald Glover's performance as Lando Calrissian and Howard's impressive action sequences have garnered praise for Solo.

With so much going on in the "Star Wars" universe since Disney acquired Lucasfilm, there's always a question of when new stand-alone projects will begin bumping into each other or run out of real estate.
