The next Star Wars Anthology film will be a prequel focusing on a young Han Solo and how he became the legendary pilot and smuggler we all know and love. To the delight of many, a young Lando Calrissian will also play a part in the film, played by fan-favorite actor Donald Glover. In an interview with Deadline, he noted that after reading the script and trying to embody the character, he feels that Lando is a more complicated man than Han is:
““Lando seems to be a lot of people’s favorite character. It’s cool. It’s a lot of pressure, but it’s also very exciting. He was my favorite character too. I grew up on Star Wars. It’s just cool to see him again. I feel like people like him ’cause he has a lot of style, but also he’s a complicated character in this world. I think even Han isn’t as complicated as Lando is. From the first time you meet him, you don’t know whether to trust him or not, and you’re constantly not knowing whether to trust him. I like that about him.”
Glover also noted that he’s studied up on Lando to make sure he truly nails the part. The film is set to arrive on May 25th, 2018.
