The Entire World Is Frothing On Donald Glover As Young Lando Calrissian

The Han Solo origin story has left us all a little bit anxious. Reports of massive reshoots, a dramatic firing of the directors, and not a drop of footage despite being three months out from the premiere was leaving everyone a touch nervous.

Well, that finally ended today: Disney dropped a 45-second teaser for Solo: A Star Wars Story, and everyone can agree on one thing: even if the film is a disaster, Donald Glover as a young Lando Calrission is divine.

It’s fantasy casting come to life. That fur coat? The BEARD? Damn, son.

The thirst for Glover’s Lando is strong.

Solo: A Star Wars Story also stars Alden Ehrenreich as young Han Solo, Emilia Clarke as Qi-Ra, Woody Harrelson as Tobias Beckett and Thandie Newtown (rumour-only, so no character name yet), but you wouldn’t know it. Might as well be renamed Calrissian: The Lando Story.

There’s a full trailer out tomorrow, so prepare for a bigger look at the film (which is out May 24). Cannot wait, tbqh.
