Donald Glover and Billy Dee Williams will reprise role of Lando Calrissian in new Disney+ Star Wars Story
That’s right! You heard right! You are not day-dreaming.
This has been a life-long dream come true for me. Lando is one of my favorite characters, and was given such little screen time in the original trilogy, and the Solo film. Well, I’m so happy to announce that Disney+ is bringing Lando his own Star Wars Story! Given the incredible success of The Mandalorian, and the technological marvel of The Volume, I’m surprised Disney isn’t announcing more Star Wars stories, given just how quickly they can spin up productions now.
But hey, I’ll take this any day. I came across this tweet, which provided little context oof even editorial proof that it was in fact...true:
But, following down the rabbit-hole To YouTube (as you do), the @KRTransmissions YouTube channel confirms the details here in an exclusive scoop! It’s a must watch.
I’m fucking ecstatic, can hardly believe it! Complex mag thinks Disney might take a stab at making the Star Wars story a series of episodic flashbacks to past and preset, young and and old, etc (LOST, anyone?). Could be cool.
I’m still just super excited we’ll get to see more of Donald Glover portraying a young Lando. Give it up for Billy Dee Williams coming back to reprise Lando is no small feat either. He’s been on quite the hiatus, and seeing him in The Rise of Skywalker was a real treat.
