Lucasfilm's Star Wars expansion through streaming has proven to be vital as it gave the beloved franchise the opportunity to put out contents that not only require lesser budgets. On top of that, it allowed the production company to explore a ton of stories previously untold in a galaxy far, far away.

However, the scheme isn't exactly foolproof, and despite Lucasfilm's efforts to fortify its ever-growing library of shows, the last number of years have seen projects get canned for various reasons. Speaking of, an anticipated project featuring a young Lando Calrissian might be off the table.

According to a new scoop from Giant Freakin Robot, the Lando spinoff series which stars Donald Glover is no longer happening with Lucasfilm abandoning the project altogether. The outlet didn't offer details about the show's rumored cancelation.

It's worth mentioning that Kathleen Kennedy previously provided a concerning update regarding its true status, revealing at last year's Star Wars Celebration that "there’s no movement" on the project first announced to be in development in late 2020.

Kennedy told CinemaBlend: "You need to ask Donald. He’s the one that holds all the cards here. But there’s no movement. I will say that honestly. But it’s not for lack of trying. It’s just that he’s a very busy guy … He’s got another series, and I think one other thing, and then he’ll come our way. So patiently waiting."

Of course, nothing has officially been set in stone so just like any rumor, it's still best to take this one with a Death Star-sized grain of salt. But the idea shouldn't come as a shocker to anyone because the franchise canned several projects over the last three years.

In other Star Wars news, The Mandalorian Season 3 will hit Disney+ on March 1, 2023.
