Say what you will about “Solo” but one thing everyone can agree on was Donald Glover’s spot on portrayal of Lando Calrissisan. Now we might be seeing him reprise the role.
Glover is reportedly in talks to reprise his role as Lando Calrissian in an upcoming Disney+ series. The Solo spin-off has been rumored before, but it is believed that Glover is either close to signing the deal or has already done so. It was rumored at the beginning of the year that Lucasfilm was looking into making a Solo spin-off series, despite the fact that the movie didn’t do so well at the box office. However, since its release, it has gained a cult audience.
The untitled Disney+ series will reportedly take place during the timeline of Solo, which is before the events of A New Hope. The storyline will revolve around Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian getting through an underworld being taken over by “crime syndicates like Crimson Dawn and Black Sun, which were under the control of Darth Maul at that time.” If this proves to be true, we could very well see the return of Ray Park as Maul, adding even more incentive for Star Wars fans to tune in and check out the new series.
