Donald Glover is officially your new Lando Calrissian.
Lucasfilm has announced that Glover will play the younger version of “Star Wars'” Cloud City administrator turned Rebel Alliance general in the upcoming standalone Han Solo film.
Glover will join Alden Ehrenreich, who was confirmed to play the young Solo during Star Wars Celebration in July.
The still-untitled Han Solo film will be helmed by “Lego Movie” directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller from a script written by veteran “Star Wars” screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan and son Jon Kasdan.
The directing duo are already cracking jokes that have us all very hopeful for the tone and tenor of this standalone “Star Wars” film.
Glover can currently be seen starring in FX’s “Atlanta,” a series he also created, as a young college dropout trying to get his cousin’s rap career to take off.
