Solo: A Star Wars Story Writer Reveals Lando’s Full Name

Like every other Star Wars film, Solo was full of neat Easter Eggs, and one of them was the reveal that Lando was actually a nickname for "Landonis." A lot of fans loved the tidbit, but co-writer Jon Kasdan reveals that there is actually more to the real name of Lando Calrissian.

He posts on Twitter:

Seeing that Lando is a character full of swagger and pride, it's fun to know that his name is just as fancy. It may not have come out in the film, but I guess it would be something for the visual dictionaries. They can probably even reveal it in a future film, should Solo get a sequel.


Though Solo may not have met box office expectations, it had nothing to do with how the movie was received at all. In fact, a lot of fans who saw the film have been praising it a lot online, and some The Last Jedi haters have even admitted that it got them back into liking Star Wars.

Personally, I like the idea of having self-contained Star Wars movies that don't really have high stakes. Besides all the great characters, Solo was just a fun ride from beginning to end; and it's great how they gave the Empire a presence without really making them the main villain of the film.

Will Solo get picked up for a sequel? I guess we'll just have to wait and find out. Hopefully the release will be handled much better than the first movie.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is now available for digital and Blu-Ray.
