Are the people at Star Wars – George Lucas, Kathleen Kennedy, Dave Filoni, Jon Favreau, etc. – creating a Donald Glover Lando series coming to Disney+? The actor portayed Lando Calrissian in ‘Solo’. Here’s the latest Lando Disney Plus rumors, plus why this could be one of the most exciting Star Wars projects ever.
Lando Disney Plus Series with Donald Glover
We’ve all seen our fair share of Star Wars rumors and speculation over the past few weeks, but this newest development is incredibly exciting.
According to one source, Donald Glover may be getting a Lando series on Disney+ after all.
As you may know, Donald Glover played the iconic Star Wars character Lando Calrissian in the Solo film.
Not only was that film fantastic (in my personal opinion), but Donald Glover was absolutely perfect as Lando.
So, with that in mind, it makes perfect sense that he would be cast as playing Lando Calrissian in a standalone series for Disney Plus. Honestly, Donald Glover is the main reason this show could be one of the most exciting projects in Star Wars right now.
Both the titular character of Mando, and the surprise sensation of the century, Baby Yoda, have taken the world by storm. Plus, on top of that, the Disney Gallery documentary series has been a massive hit, too!
Where Did the Rumor Come From?
The latest and greatest Star Wars / Disney+ rumor comes from a video podcast that posted on July 22, 2020.
