A Lando Calrissian 'Star Wars' Spinoff Starring Donald Glover Isn't Happening

Even Premiere and ComicBook both note the long-gestating chatter around an Obi-Wan film. With the exception of one or two lines that anticipate the title character's future adventures, the proceedings have the perfunctory air of biting into the aforementioned apple, and taking tasteful, unobjectionable nibbles. It's an especially murky experience in the first 30 minutes of the film, where everything is cast in various shades of grey and muddy, grimy exterior.
The critics have spoken, and director Ron Howard'sSolo: A Star Wars Story has been given the seal of approval on review site Rotten Tomatoes. If you heard Han or Lando mention something of their backstory in A New Hope or The Empire Strikes Back, you're gonna see it played out here, but it's more a function of the story rather than the point.
And, finally, just because it's unbelievable and awesome, here is a photo of Newton standing with Glover, the young Lando himself. You're at a disadvantage before you start. A lot of this was because of the character of Han Solo; he had the coolest ship, he was charming and amusing, and his best friend was a giant bear dog who could rip people's arms out of their sockets. You can't help but scrutinize every gesture, every smirk, every aside as you try to get used to him. The script does also- as predicted- contain a number of nearly groan-worthy on-the-nose moments setting up Han's backstory (think a feature-length version of that opening Young Indy sequence from "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade"), but ultimately it's all in good fun and mostly forgivable.
Donald Glover is a scene-stealer as the young Lando Calrissian in "Solo: A Star Wars Story". It had a clear and concise goal, extremely high stakes, and few original characters in the forefront to distract you from the story at hand.
The story follows Han from his years as a street urchin on the shipyard-dotted backwater planet of Corellia through to his early experiences as an outlaw, working among Beckett (Woody Harrelson of "Cheers" fame) and his crew as they run jobs for fearsome gangster Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany from Marvel's recent smash "Avengers: Infinity War").
Let's take a look at the differences between the fan response and those who get paid to review films on Rotten Tomatoes - specifically Star Wars live-action movies in this case. There are other key elements that probably are best left to the experience. Rush director Ron Howard was assigned to take over the reins and it was rumoured that he had to reshoot the almost complete movie to align with the studio's vision.
While most reviews refer to the behind-the-scenes tumult that resulted in original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miler exiting and Ron Howard stepping in, the general consensus is widely positive.
