Although a Lando Calrissian spinoff isn’t yet officially in development at Lucasfilm, Solo: A Star Wars Story star Donald Glover has an idea for what he’d like it to be like.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor said he imagines a solo film exploring the character’s high life. “It would be cool to see, like, Frasier in Space — like, a high-end guy in space,” he said. “All of these characters are very specific and they have very specific points of view, so it’s always going to be fun to see them traveling around to a planet that is the opposite of what they’re used to… And all of that seems like it would be fun to write, for sure.”

Glover said he’d be glad to return to the role, should a spinoff or a sequel happen.
“I would love to do it again. It’s really fun. The movie, I feel like, is wide open,” he said. “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. I feel like out here its 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.”
