Recently Kathleen Kennedy announced the Star Wars event series during the Disney Investor Day 2020 presentation, which revealed that Creator Justin Simin is developing the show about the galaxy’s most-wanted villain: Lando Calrissian.
Atlanta Creator Donald Glover filmed the younger version of the little Millennium Falcon owner Billy Dee Williams in 2018 Solo: A Star Wars Story. It is the origin story of young smugglers Han and Chewbacca. However, Glover’s Lando took a chance away from it, Star Wars: Lando Hyperdrive is still on.

Kathleen Kennedy addressed CinemaBlend of the spinoff at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim by saying:
“You need to ask Donald. He’s the one that holds all the cards here. But there’s no movement.”
“I will say that honestly. But it’s not for lack of trying. It’s just that he’s a very busy guy. … He’s got another series, and I think one other thing, and then he’ll come our way.”
Kathleen Kennedy also said that the studio behind Disney+’s The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan Kenobi is “patiently waiting” for Glover, the multitalented celeb known as Childish Gambino. Glover is currently working on the television comeback of Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
“It would always be fun to be Lando again,” Glover said about a potential Solo spinoff movie on SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio in 2018. “I would love to do it again. It’s really fun. The movie, I feel like, is wide open. This part of the universe without the… I feel like with the Skywalkers, it’s hard because it’s almost like the Bible. There’s a story that you have to tell and the lineage of that family.”
Glover proceeded with the corner of the Star Wars galaxy portrayed in Solo by saying:
“I feel like out here it’s like, yeah, we’re just like hustlers and gamblers and space pirates, essentially, so you can do a lot more and have a lot more fun. And I like those movies a lot. I like the comedy of them, the silliness and also the adventure. I think it would just be fun to do.”
