Hello, hello, hello. What do we have here?
Why it’s our first look at Donald Glover as suave intergalactic conman Lando Calrissian as being played by Donald Glover in Lucasfilm’s upcoming, still untitled young Han Solo film, courtesy of director Ron Howard.
While the image is small, this may not be the first time we’ve seen some of Lando’s splashy wardrobe. Since he took over the project last month, Howard has been periodically posting behind-the-scenes shots of the production. Last week was this shot of some clothing asking us to try and guess whose it may be.
The fact that this material is being released certainly feels like Lucasfilm is doing damage-control, showing everyone that things are just fine with the movie following the rather contentious circumstances under which original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were dismissed. But whatever the reason, it is nice to start getting some glimpses of what the film has in store for us when it opens on May 25, 2018.
