Donald Glover shares his pitch for a Star Wars spin-off movie about young Lando

The actor, musician and comedian will play the character for the first time in the upcoming Han Solo movie

Donald Glover has shared one of his ideas for a possible Star Wars spin-off film about his new character, Lando Calrissian.

Glover will play a younger version of Lando in the upcoming Han Solo spin-off Solo: A Star Wars Story, which hits cinemas on Friday (May 25).

Speaking ahead of the launch of the film, Glover acknowledged the huge buzz surrounding his involvement in Solo by indulging fans in his own views as to what a Lando-centric film might look like.


“It would be cool to see, like, Frasier in space— like, a high-end guy in space,” Glover told Entertainment Weekly Radio.

“All of these characters are very specific and they have very specific points of view, so it’s always going to be fun to see them traveling around to a planet that is the opposite of what they’re used to. And all of that seems like it would be fun to write, for sure.”

Glover also admitted that it “would be fun to be Lando again”.

“I would love to do it again. It’s really fun. The movie, I feel like, is wide open… I feel like, with the Skywalkers, it’s hard, because it’s almost like the Bible.

“There’s a story that you have to tell, and the lineage of that family. I feel like out here its like, yeah, we’re just like hustlers and gamblers and space pirates, essentially, so you can do a lot more and have a lot more fun.”
