Looks like Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian is getting his own Disney+ Star Wars series

July 22nd, 2020 by Marc Comments

Some pretty exciting news tonight for those Star Wars fans out there who just can’t get enough of the galaxy far, far away.

If you recall, a few days ago (here) we revealed that Solo: A Star Wars Story star Alden Ehrenreich revealed that he had heard ‘soooome news’ about more of his version of Han Solo’s story being explored down the line because, despite the movie’s underperforming, it has found its audience and set up some very interesting story threads with Darth Maul’s appearance at the end.

Now the guys at the KRT Transmissions podcast have revealed that they can reveal that Donald Glover will be returning for a Disney+ series as the one and only Lando Calrissian, who he played in Solo and it’s fair to say the fandom loved his take on the character.

Now, we would normally treat this nothing more than rumour, but the KRT Podcast broke the story that a Bad Batch series was coming (here) well before the official announcement was made (here), so I would be inclined to put some belief in this news.

While it’s unlikely the Lando series will tie up the plot threads from Solo: A Star Wars Story – it might, but it’s not likely – we’d still be very, very excited to see the further adventures of Landa Calrissian on any sized screen.

What say you all? Would you watch? Did you like Glover in the role? Let me know your thoughts, gang.

Watch the full reveal here:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
