Solo: A Star Wars Story is not just the origin story of Han Solo and his best buddy Chewbacca. Donald Glover takes on the role of Lando Calrissian, a role that was originally played in The Empire Strikes Back by Billy Dee Williams.
“I just love the way it looks,” said Glover. “It feels like a very edgy film and I feel like there is enough there to satisfy anybody who has wondered about Han or Lando. There’s so much about Han in this movie that you connect with . . . I just hope that people can really connect and they’re interested in this world because I would love to be a part of this world again. It’s really great.
