Donald Glover had played Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story, and though rumors have been going around that he’s going to be working on a spinoff, we haven’t had any official updates.
In a recent interview with GQ Magazine though, Glover has confirmed that he’s still in talks for returning as Lando, but the project will have to be the ‘right one’. Check this out:
"I would love to play Lando again… We're talking about it. That's as much as I can say."

In Solo, we meet Lando while he was still the captain of the Millennium Falcon, and by the end of the film, we get to see how Han swindles the ship out of Lando’s grasp (to be fair, Lando himself was also a swindler). You can check out their interaction here:
Though Solo did underperform in the box office, time has revealed that the failure of the film really wasn’t with the quality of the movie at all, but rather with the poor marketing, with Disney pitting the film against Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2. A lot of fans online believe that the film would have done way better if Disney just allowed Lucasfilm to push it back to December of that year.
Either way, there is a #MakeSolo2Happen movement on Twitter, and there has been more love for the movie over time. Though I would love for Glover’s Lando to make a return, I was actually a bigger fan of Alden Ehrenreich’s take on a young Han Solo.
A Lando spinoff hasn’t gotten any updates from Lucasfilm, but you can check Glover out in Solo: A Star Wars Story now streaming on Disney+.
