Donald Glover To Play Young Lando Calrissian For 'Han Solo' Film

Lucasfilm and Disney have announced who is playing the young Lando Calrissian, in the Han Solo film. The actor playing Lando is the ever so talented Donald Glover.

Glover is an acclaimed writer, Grammy-winning performer, and is a stellar actor. He will play a version of Lando we haven't seen before - we'll see "Lando in his formative years as a scoundrel on the rise in the galaxy’s underworld" - years before meeting up with Leia and Luke. He will play opposite to Alden Ehrenreich's Han Solo.

“We’re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us,” said Lord and Miller. “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.”

The untitled Han Solo film is to be released in 2018, star Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, and be directed by directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
