Fans may be waiting a while to see the further adventures of Lando Calrissian, according to Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.
In an interview with Yahoo! Entertainment’s Kevin Polowy at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2022, Kennedy cited scheduling issues for the delays on the “Lando” series. It was announced back in 2020 with star Donald Glover.
She acknowledges that Glover is a “popular” and “very busy” performer, which has made it difficult to begin production on the series, adding “if we could be doing that tomorrow, I would love it.” Still, she remains optimistic, saying that conversations are still ongoing.
In “Lando,” Glover will reprise his performance as the title character, which he last performed in “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” Series creator Justin Simien (“Dear White People”) is keeping himself busy in the meantime, as he serves as director of the upcoming film “Haunted Mansion,” which hits theaters March 10th, 2023.
Even with “Lando” stuck in neutral, there’s still plenty to keep Star Wars fans glued to Disney+. “Obi-Wan Kenobi” just premiered on the streaming service, with “Andor” set to debut on August 31st, and season three of “The Mandalorian” and “Ahsoka” coming next year. Other shows, like “The Acolyte” and the newly-announced “Skeleton Crew,” remain in development.
