Childish Gambino is entering a galaxy far, far away and a very important piece of Han Solo’s past has been casted for the upcoming spin off. The rumors have been confirmed and the official Star Wars Twitter account announced that Donald Glover will play the future Baron Administrator, Lando Calrissian. Glover will be joining Alden Ehrenreich, who will be playing a younger and still breathing Han Solo.
The last time we saw Lando, who was played by the legendary Billy Dee Williams, was during the events of episodes V and VI of the original Star Wars Saga, but this time around we are going to see Lando and Han’s life before Cloud city. The still untitled entry into the Star Wars universe will revolve around their early life in the intergalactic underworld.
Since there is still a lot of time before the 2018 release, the casting and story information will becoming quickly. As this world continues to grow and the movie begins to get filmed, stay locked into this site and http://www.starwars.com for any new information.
