Star Wars: Donald Glover confirmed as the new Lando Calrissian.


Lucasfilm announced today that Donald Glover, an acclaimed actor, award-winning writer, and Grammy-nominated artist, will be playing the part of Lando Calrissian in the still-untitled Han Solo Star Wars film, helmed by directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.

Glover will join Alden Ehrenreich previously cast as Han Solo in bringing two iconic Star Wars characters back to the big screen, but at a time in their lives previously unexplored.

This new film depicts Lando in his formative years as a scoundrel on the rise in the galaxy’s underworld years before the events involving Han, Leia, and Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back and his rise to Rebel hero in Return of the Jedi.
