Donald Glover will be Lando Calrissian in Upcoming Han Solo Standalone Film

We have a new Lando! And it’s Donald Glover! StarWars.com has just announced that Donald Glover, late of Community and Atlanta, will play young Lando Calrissian in the still-untitled Han Solo Star Wars film, which will be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. He’ll be joining young Han Solo Alden Ehrenreich for a story that will cover their formative years as “scoundrels on the rise in the galaxy’s underworld” which sounds promising to us.

The directors enthused over Glover’s casting, saying: “We’re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us. These are big shoes to fill, and an even bigger cape, and this one fits him perfectly, which will save us money on alterations. Also, we’d like to publicly apologize to Donald for ruining Comic-Con for him forever.”

In addition to Community and Atlanta, Glover has also appeared in The Martian, will star in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and has a longstanding rap career under the name Childish Gambino. What does everyone think of the news? Personally, I can’t wait to see him rock a floor-length cape.
