Will Donald Glover return as Lando Calrissian in the rumored Disney+ series? Read on to learn more!
Oh, Solo: A Star Wars Story. To me, it’s one of those films that’s just…”fine.” It’s not great. It’s not terrible. Plus, if it didn’t feature everyone’s favorite smuggler, I think it would have been far better received. But, at the end of the day, it’s just a fine swashbuckling film. And while the film pretty much flopped in theaters, that hasn’t stopped some fans from wishing for a sequel. In fact, it very much a film that cried out for one, given the number of loose ends it had.
But would we ever get such a film or follow-up? That remains to be seen, but a new rumor states that at least one character could be getting a Disney+ standalone series in the years to come. The new rumor comes courtesy of the podcast Kessel Run Radio. In the last segment of their podcast (around 54:20 in), they reveal that a Lando Calrissian series is in development at Lucasfilm.
They go on to say that Donald Glover is returning to take on the role once again. This is an interesting deal from Lucasfilm considering Glover seems to be one of the busier actors from that original movie. Personally, I’d be more interested in seeing Emilia Clarke’s Q’ira, as I wasn’t a huge fan of Glover’s portrayal in the flick. But I guess a Lando show would likely include Q’ira in some capacity.
It’s worth mentioning that this isn’t the first time this has been rumored. Last April, Grace Randolph reported that the streamer was considering both a Donald Glover and Billy Dee Williams show. With that in mind, it wouldn’t surprise us if these talks weren’t, at the very least, true. Whether or not this will actually happen is a different story altogether, but there does seem to be some truth to general talks at Lucasfilm.
