Star Wars Celebration 2019 set for Chicago in April

Even though we're only weeks away from seeing Alden Ehrenreich from putting his stamp on Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story, Harrison Ford will always be the actor that Star Wars fans associate most with the character.

What Kennedy actually said was Lucasfilm would love to eventually make a Lando spin-off one day, but this is now not a priority.

"We think that the next spin-off will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian", read a translation of her comments.

As announced on today's episode of Lucasfilm's news web series "The Star Wars Show", Star Wars Celebration 2019 will take place from Thursday, April 11th through Monday, April 15th at McCormick Place (the largest convention center in North America) in Chicago, Illinois. At the Cannes screening of Solo, ahead of her debut in the film, Newton wore a dress printed with action figures of all the black Star Wars characters. "Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and (sidekick) Chewbacca, but Lando will be next".

Speaking in an interview with Premiere France, she said that a new instalment could centre around Glover's Calrissian.

I have seen Solo: A Star Wars Story (review coming "soon"), and loved it, but I hunger for a Lando film over a sequel to Solo (though I also want a sequel to Solo).

Among the characters featured on the gown were John Boyega as Finn, Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, Donald Glover as young as Lando Calrissian, Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera, Hugh Quarshie as Captain Panaka and Samuel L. Jackson as Mace Windu.
