Lando starring Donald Glover is being changed from a TV series into a movie

Lando starring Donald Glover is being changed from a TV series into a movie.

Stephen Glover first dropped the news of a “Lando” movie on a recent appearance on the “Pablo Torre Finds Out” podcast, telling the host, “It’s not even a show…the idea right now is to do a movie. Right now, because of the strike, it’s kind of like telephone, all of the information.” That’s all the info Stephen could provide. Lucasfilm confirmed the news afterwards.

News first broke of a Lando Calrissian limited series being in the works in December 2020. At the time, “Dear White People” creator Justin Simien was attached to the project. He exited and was replaced by the Glover brothers, who are developing it as a movie. The character of Lando was originally played by Billy Dee Williams in “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi.”

News broke in July that Donald and Stephen Glover had been tapped by Disney and Lucasfilm to replace Justin Simien as the writers of a new “Lando” television series on Disney+. But not so fast. The project is actually being developed as a “Lando” movie, Lucasfilm confirmed to Variety. Glover debuted as a young Lando Calrissian in the 2017 “Star Wars” tentpole “Solo,” which was a notable box office disappointment for Disney and Lucasfilm.

In April, Donald Glover told GQ of a potential project with Lando, saying he wasn't interested in something that would be a waste of time, and it had to feel right to him to keep going. "I would much rather spend time with people I enjoy. It just has to be the right thing, which I think it could be. Lando is definitely somebody I'd like to hang out with. We're talking about it. That's as much as I can say."

Glover has become somewhat of a reliable force over at Disney, pulling off a hat trick by having roles in Star Wars, Marvel Studios, and Disney studios films with the Lion King remake. Glover's mega-hit Atlanta is also on the Disney-owned FX.
