In the god dam best news to come out of America since we realised the election was almost over… Donald Glover of Childish Gambino, Community, Atlanta and all around being a great guy fame will be playing the iconic part of Lando Calrissian in the young Han Solo movie.
Lando Calrissian portrayed by Billy Dee Williams in the original Star Wars Triology is a friend to Han Solo and prior to the films Lando won the Millennium Falcon in a card game.
Starring alongside Hail Caesar’s! Alden Ehrenreich in the 2018 film lined up behind Rogue One and the sequel to Force Awakens- how and if the Han Solo film factors into the storyline of the current film remains to be seen but we are definitely looking forward too it and hoping he pops up alongside Finn and Rey in some kind of Force form.
Congrats to Mr Glover we know he’ll do great.
