Announced today via Star Wars.com, Donald Glover has officially been cast as Lando Calrissian in the upcoming young Han-Solo spin-off movie.
The upcoming untitled film is currently set to release in 2018 and directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
“We’re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us,” said Lord and Miller in a statement. “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.”
Maybe we’ll finally get to see where Lando loses the Millennium Falcon to Han! We can only hope for the best!
