Donald Glover, aka rapper Childish Gambino, has landed the role of Lando in the 2018 Star Wars film which will focus on Han Solo.
The role was played in the original trilogy by Billy Dee Williams.
“We’re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us,” said Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller in a prepared statement. “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 will join Alden Ehrenreich who was previously announced for role of Han Solo.
