Star Wars is hoping to bring a major star back into its world. According to Kessel Run Transmissions, Donald Glover will return as Lando Calrissian in his own Disney+ series.
In their report, Kessel Run Transmissions explained that Glover has already signed on, or he is very close to signing on to reprise his role as Lando Calrissian from Solo: A Star Wars Story. As of now, the deal is still in its early stages, and it is possible it could fall through; however, it seems like Lucasfilm has been working hard to get him to return.
Back in February, it was rumored that Disney was looking to develop a spinoff of Solo: A Star Wars Story focused on Crimson Dawn. It seems likely this series could feature Glover’s return as Lando Calrissian.
While Solo: A Star Wars Story received mixed reviews from fans, Glover’s Lando was praised by many. Therefore, it makes sense Disney would want him to return given his past performance and his genuine star power.
Kessel Run Transmissions didn’t reveal when to expect this series on Disney+, given the deal is still in the early stages. For now, it seems Lucasfilm is working on getting Glover on board and then going from there.
