Yay Star Wars news!!! We’ve got a new Lando!
Lucas Films announced on Friday that Donald Glover will be playing the part of Lando Calrissian in the still-untitled Han Solo Star Wars film scheduled for a 2018 release. This new story depicts Lando in his younger years as a scoundrel on the rise in the galaxy’s underworld, years before we meet him in The Empire Strikes Back and his eventual rise to Rebel hero in Return of the Jedi. Billy Dee Williams crushed it as Lando in the original trilogy. I like this casting! I think Glover is a great fit!
