Han Solo Movie Casts Donald Glover As Lando Calrissian

Han Solo may have met his ultimate end in Star Wars: The Force Awakens last year, but since the character is one of the most beloved in the entire franchise, Lucasfilm isn’t planning on moving away from the iconic smuggler. Harrison Ford’s time in the role may be done, but the studio has a young Han Solo spinoff coming through the pipeline, due in theaters May 2018. Directed by the dynamic duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller (21 Jump Street, The LEGO Movie), the film sees rising star Alden Ehrenreich take over – perhaps for a trilogy of movies.

Finding the new Han Solo was obviously a crucial part of the production process, but the filmmakers still need to round out a supporting cast before filming begins in January 2017. Many were wondering if Han’s buddy Lando Calrissian would appear in the spinoff in some capacity, with the rumor mill suggesting that Lord and Miller were looking for someone to play a young version of the old smoothie. Now, their supposed first choice for the part has officially signed on.

In an official release on starwars.com, it is confirmed that Donald Glover is on board to play Lando in the upcoming film. According to the report, Han Solo will show Calrissian “in his formative years as a scoundrel on the rise in the galaxy’s underworld” before becoming the administrator at Bespin’s Cloud City.
