Donald Glover Prepares For Lando Calrissian

Donald Glover Prepares For Lando Calrissian

The Han Solo standalone Star Wars film is hyper speed ahead in production and Donald Glover is starting to feel it.

Writer/actor/comedian/rapper Donald Glover (Community, The Martian) won big at this past Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California. His new FX series Atlanta took home trophies for Best Television Series (Musical or Comedy) and Best Actor in a Television Series (Musical or Comedy).

So what’s next for the multitalented alum of the “30 Rock” writers’ room? Well, besides starring in the upcoming Marvel/Sony team-up effort “Spider-Man: Homecoming” in a thus-far unannounced role, he’s also preparing for his part as Lando Calrissian (previously played by the ever-so-suave Billy Dee Williams) in directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s untitled Han Solo-centric Star Wars spinoff movie.

Glover said:

“Not getting to eat anything enjoyable for the rest of my life. Lando’s a big deal to me. It was literally the first toy I ever got. When you have something that’s kind of iconic … where people pay attention to it, it’s hard because you want to live up to the expectation.

But all you can do is live up to your own. And Star Wars is really high. I really just want to have fun. The directors: (Christopher Miller and Phil Lord), they’re amazing. I love the guy who is playing Han (Alden Ehrenreich). It’s going to be a good time. It’s going to be fun. I’m getting ready to just have fun with those guys.”

The as-yet untitled Han Solo movie is currently scheduled to be released in the summer of 2018.
