Donald Glover Joins the Cast of Young Han Solo Movie

Donald Glover has officially joined the cast of the upcoming young Han Solo Star Wars film!

The 33-year-old actor and musician will take on the role of Lando Calrissian, which was originally played by Billy Dee Williams in The Empire Strikes Back.

“We’re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us. These are big shoes to fill, and an even bigger cape, and this one fits him perfectly, which will save us money on alterations. Also, we’d like to publicly apologize to Donald for ruining Comic-Con for him forever,” directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller wrote on StarWars.com.

Donald will join Alden Ehrenreich, who has already signed on to star as the young Han Solo, a role made iconic by Harrison Ford.

Star Wars‘ untitled Han Solo flick in set to hit theaters in 2018.
