Kessel Run Podcast has announced that Solo: A Star Wars Story's Donald Glover is to reprise the role of Lando Calrissian for a new Disney+ series.
The rumour, which has not been confirmed but Disney or Lucasfilm, puts Lando as the lead character and mentions a possible title for the series being the Calrissian Chronicles, which are also referenced in-universe as Lando's self-narrated record of his adventures.
During Solo we briefly see Lando dropping references to the former Star Wars expanded universe novels by L Neil Smith, which were grouped under the Lando Calrissian Adventures banner and would be an ideal source for any adventure series featuring Lando.
So, will we be seeing Lando Calrissian visit the Starcave of ThonBoka? Perhaps, but the system of Oseon and the Mindharp of Sharu have already been absorbed into canon so it's entirely feasible that we could see these adventures realised in a Disney+ series.
The series may even be the unknown series announced on Star Wars Day earlier this year, which was said at the time to be lead by Leslye Headland who previously co-created the Netflix drama-comedy series Russian Doll.
We will watch this rumour with great interest.
