Donald Glover 'Would Love' to Make a Lando Movie Someday

Unlike the (slightly) better "Rogue One", "Solo" benefits greatly by including three familiar, decades-old characters that take little time in charming the die-hard faithful masses but adversely have further to fall if charm is their sole offering.

In a galaxy far, far away Walt Disney Pictures highly anticipated prequel (Solo A Star Wars Story) to the story of our favorite loveable scoundrel, Han Solo, is off to a slow start. "I called my dad first and told him and that was like a big moment". I don't actually think I could write as a man.

"The first thing I did was sit in the cockpit", said Howard. I think internally everybody had a great time doing it and feels confident about it and loves Star Wars.

Glover mentioned to EW that his early talks with Billy Dee Williams also hinted at the character's pansexuality, even if Lando's sexual identity was never explicitly stated when Williams played the character. I think it's fun. There is drama, there is real pain but thematically, the centre of it is more about this quest for freedom and trying to throw off the burdens of oppressors and things like that, so it has a kind of an energy.

"He texted me", said Glover.

FOR a film that really struggled to get into the air, Solo: A Star Wars Story is a fun ride.

Glover also responded to the rumored Lando spinoff movie.

"It would always be fun to be Lando again".

Nick Acosta, a talented young filmmaker from San Francisco with a strong sense of "what if", altered the trailer for "Solo: A Star Wars Story", which opens Thursday night.

Donald Glover plays the very loveable Lando Calrissian in the recent Star Wars film and in a recent chat with Sirius XM's Entertainment Weekly Radio he expressed his interest in doing a Lando centric film if it ever came to be. Characters like Han, Chewie and Lando are already familiar to us, but we get to see them in a new light. The questions I'm asking myself when I'm reading scripts are, 'Why is someone making this movie now, where's the relevance?' and that's going to be a narrative throughout the rest of my career choices.
