Long rumored, but now official, Donald Glover has been cast as Lando Calrissian in the 2018 Han Solo Star Wars spinoff.
The Star Wars official site broke the news this afternoon where the Han Solo directors said,
â€œWeâ€™re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us,â€ said Lord and Miller. â€œThese are big shoes to fill, and an even bigger cape, and this one fits him perfectly, which will save us money on alterations. Also, weâ€™d like to publicly apologize to Donald for ruining Comic-Con for him forever.â€
The 2018 Han Solo spinoff doesn’t have an official title, and we may not hear about that for a while. After all, there’s two Star Wars movies coming out before then.
