Donald Glover is Getting His Own ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff Movie


Next ‘Star Wars‘ spinoff will be about Lando Calrissian and will star Donald Glover.

Donald Glover has quickly become one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. In his next project, Donald Glover will play Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Now, according to reports, Lando will be getting his own spin-off. Lucasfilm president, Kathleen Kennedy said this week, “We think that the next spinoff will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian, ” said Kennedy in an interview with Premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this past Tuesday. ” Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca, but Lando will be next.”

Glover revealed that he’s been excited to play the role ever since hew as a child. ” When I heard they were making these, I told my agent, ‘if they’re making anything with Lando in it, I have to be Lando,’” he said. “And he was like, ‘I hear you; I don’t like your odds.’ And that was exactly what I needed to hear. I really did audition like it was the only role I wanted in the world because it really was. I’m just really happy to be part of this. My dad imprinted me with this kind of Star Wars longing because it does feel like the Bible to me in a lot of ways.”
