Solo: A Star Wars Story 2018 Spoiler Thread

Donald Glover is officially a young Lando Calrissian!

Lucasfilm announced today that Donald Glover, an acclaimed actor, award-winning writer, and Grammy-nominated artist, will be playing the part of Lando Calrissian in the still-untitled Han Solo Star Wars film, helmed by directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Glover will join Alden Ehrenreich — previously cast as Han Solo — in bringing two iconic Star Wars characters back to the big screen, but at a time in their lives previously unexplored. This new film depicts Lando in his formative years as a scoundrel on the rise in the galaxy’s underworld — years before the events involving Han, Leia, and Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back and his rise to Rebel hero in Return of the Jedi.

“We’re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us,” said Lord and Miller. “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.”

Glover is best known for creating and starring in the critically acclaimed FX series Atlanta (which had the highest premiere numbers for any basic cable comedy show since 2013), as well as for starring in four seasons of the show Community, and for his Grammy-nominated album Because the Internet, performed under the name Childish Gambino. In addition, Glover appeared in the Academy Award-nominated The Martian, and will be seen in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The untitled Han Solo movie is set for release in 2018.

I saw Star Wars, empire, and ROTJ and haven't been able to get into any since then. Maybe it's time to try and watch the newer ones again. For some reason I just couldn't get into them last time.

That said, long live Lando!

Woody Harrelson confirmed to play Garris Shrike in the stand alone film.

http://www.traileraddict.com/article...haracter-name/

Garris first appeared in A.C. Crispin’s novel The Paradise Snare, (check out that beautiful Drew Struzan cover art above)," started Sciretta. "The character was a bounty hunter-turned smuggler who raised the orphaned Han Solo as part of a group of children he used in confidence tricks and thefts, based aboard the decommissioned troopship Trader’s Luck in orbit over Corellia. Shrike rescued the young Han Solo from the streets, raised him, trained him, and beat him profusely when aggravated.”

Han Solo is probably the least interesting character in Star Wars

Well, this is their chance to make him interesting.

And I don't disagree with your opinion.

I think that Han Solo's appeal was more about the actor portraying him rather than the character himself.

I'd have to agree.

Do you think this will perform well financially?

Agreed. Same problem with Indiana Jones.

While I'm sure this guy and whoever eventually becomes Jones will be fine, it's extremely hard to replicate 'iconic'.
