Rumor: Young Lando Will Appear in the Han Solo Star Wars Story

Lando

Han and Chewie won’t be the only familiar characters showing up in the young Han Solo movie as they apparently will be joined by Lando.

According to a report from El Mayimbe at The Wrap, a young Lando Calrissian will show up in the 2018 Han Solo Star Wars Story.

Han famously won the Falcon from Lando “fair and square”, so there’s always a possibility we’ll see how that happened (in an official canon way) in this movie. The non-canon explanation was that Lando lost the Falcon to Han in a game of Sabaac, but as that’s part of the now non-canon Expanded Universe it’s possible the Kasdans have come up with a different explanation as to how Han won the Falcon from Lando.

The report says casting is underway for Lando, and an earlier report also says they’re trying to cast the female lead. As they’re looking at non-white actresses for that, there’s speculation we could see Sana Solo on the big screen after she was introduced in the canon comic book series recently.
