Donald Glover’s role as Lando Calrissian in Solo A Star Wars Story will apparently continue with his own cinematic spinoff

Alden Ehrenreich is receiving plenty of plaudits for his performance in Solo: A Star Wars Story. It gets to the point when you're waiting for a stormtrooper to march in and said, "Sorry, sir, but Milton has just stolen an escape pod, and he's heading for Tattooine with Yeats and Oscar Wilde!" There's capital-H Hero's Journey stuff surrounding it, but the focus of its narrative mainly concerns rescuing this one pivotal character, and there's fun and excitement and laughs and thrills to be had surrounding that.
Even if there weren't all those great "Star Wars" movies in our past (aka the futures of these characters), based on this adventure alone, I'd be excited to know what's next for Han Solo. That's a youthful Han Solo sitting down to gamble.
Thus we witness a meet-cute between Solo and one of his most beloved sidekicks, with whom he is imprisoned in the muck and mire of an underground cell on the "mud planet" Mimban.
The new characters introduced here are inconsistent, from the trope-riddled crew of crooks Han falls in with to the gangster he runs afoul of and the love interest he pines after. 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. And Newton's newly added Val is the only lady on the short list. "Also figuring into the lively character mix is Paul Bettany's power-hungry sociopath, Dryden Vos, and the criminally too-briefly-seen L3-37 (a hilarious Phoebe-Waller Bridge), a self-made droid who has an emotionally complicated relationship with Calrissian". Harrellson just looks happy to collect a big budget pay-check, and Clarke once again is unable to translate her Game of Thrones on-screen success into any other franchise.
In contrast to that, there are some critics that don't like the movie. "Missing here are the sort of plot-related or visual curveballs thrown by Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi or Gareth Edwards with Rogue One". Her bond with Lando in particular is both hilarious and daring and will surely provoke many conversations.
Most Star Wars fans won't know what the film is like until it releases on May 25th, 2018. They're the real reason why anyone wants to see a movie where so many outcomes are already known. Solo lays down the foundation of what brings Han and his Wookie first mate together, with some true tug-at-your-heartstrings moments due to Ehrenreich and Suotamo's seamless chemistry.
"A flawed yet fun and fast-paced space adventure, Solo: A Star Wars Story should satisfy newcomers to the saga as well as longtime fans who check their expectations at the theater door". But we hope that decision ends up being the one Lucasfilm makes. Well, it's not impossible that Lando's film could be in 2020, with Obi-Wan's standalone following in 2021, as ComicBook also acknowledges. "Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca, but Lando will be next". Laced with humour and a sustained air of insouciance, this tale, helmed expertly by Ron Howard (who came on board halfway through the production), lets us into the formative circumstances that led to Han Solo becoming the rakish rebel pilot that pop culture celebrates.
