  • Solo: A Star Wars Story is a Missed Opportunity

That's bad for a "Star Wars" movie. Lucasfilm cites translation issues between their president Kathleen Kennedy and the journalist from the French publication, Premiere.

Glover's star power is on the increase as his single This Is America, released as Childish Gambino, arrived in the U.S. charts at number one.

See original story below.

"We would love to tell a story about Lando Calrissian one day, but it's not relevant", read Kennedy's amended comments. The quote was initially mistranslated and spread across the Internet as though a Lando film had already been officially confirmed-but representatives for Lucasfilm told Vanity Fair that there aren't any concrete plans just yet.

'We think that the next spinoff will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian, ' the producer and film exec told France's Premiere.

Rogue One: A Start Wars Story - 85%. Though first reactions to the standalone were largely stellar, with critics applauding Alden Ehrenreich's take on young Han Solo and calling him "the real deal", many still wondered if Solo would soar or stumble upon launch.

Lewis Hamilton wins the 2018 Spanish GP
This is the type of race that reminds spectators and drivers alike that Hamilton still has unrivaled pace. "Let's keep this up". Hamilton is now standing at the top spot in the drivers' championship, maintaining a lead of just four points over Vettel.

"And while that means the story lacks the depth some might crave, it still offers plenty of fun, and (impressively for a prequel) the odd surprise along the way".

Beyond that, in case you haven't noticed, movies with black actors and actresses in the lead have been doing phenomenally well at the box office.

Business Insider's Jason Guerrasio said that "Solo's" third act lags and that it's the first "Star Wars" movie to make him anxious about franchise fatigue.

Vanity Fair said Solo is likely not the movie Lord And Miller would have made, but said Howard's version "knows its place".

Overlaid atop a delicate floral motif are John Boyega's Finn, Forrest Whitaker's Saw Gerrera, Hugh Quarshie's Captain Panaka, Samuel L. Jackson's Mace Windu, and Billy Dee Williams's Lando Calrissian.
