Last year, Alden Ehrenreich was introduced to fans for the first time as Han Solo, the new star of the untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story at the Future Filmmaker Panel and later that year it was confirmed that Donald Glover will portray Lando Calrissian.
Golden Globe-winning actor Donald Glover gave fans some reassuring on the part and how he feels about playing the smooth-talking smuggler.
“Not getting to eat anything enjoyable for the rest of my life. Lando’s a big deal to me. It was literally the first toy I ever got. When you have something that’s kind of iconic … where people pay attention to it, it’s hard because you want to live up to the expectation.
But all you can do is live up to your own. And Star Wars is really high. I really just want to have fun. The directors: (Christopher Miller and Phil Lord), they’re amazing. I love the guy who is playing Han (Alden Ehrenreich). It’s going to be a good time.
It’s going to be fun. I’m getting ready to just have fun with those guys.”
Disney and Lucasfilm’s untitled solo Han Solo movie is scheduled for 2018 and will be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
