Is it Bad That I’m More Excited To See Lando In ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Than Han Solo?

When I heard that Disney was going to make a Star Wars story about a young Han Solo I was skeptical but also a tad excited as well. And then when they announced that a younger Lando would also make an appearance in this film I was definitely worried. Who could possibly replace Billy Dee Williams as the cool, smooth talking smuggler, Lando Calrissean? Well, I am no longer worried because Donald Glover has taken the character of Lando to the next level! Ever since I saw his version of the suave smuggler in the first teaser I knew I was going to like this new Lando a LOT but after this latest trailer it’s pretty much confirmed that he’s going to be the coolest character in the movie. But isn’t that bad? The last time I checked this movie was called Solo: A Star Wars Story, not Lando, the Coolest Dude in the Galaxy: A Star Wars Story and that’s terrible because I feel like the only reason why I’m excited to see this movie is because of Lando, not the main character.

I mean, he’s got himself one of the coolest droids I’ve ever seen in L3-37, he’s the rightful owner of a rather clean and pristine Millennium Falcon which is really cool, he’s got the finest outfit of the bunch, even Qi’Ra, and he’s just downright really awesome looking.

I think another reason why I’m so excited to see Lando in this movie is because he was such a small character in the original trilogy and yet he was so intriguing. I’ve always wanted to know a little more about him but until now that wasn’t possible, from a movie standpoint anyway. With this film I’ll finally get a crash course on who Lando was before we find him as the governor of the Cloud City and I’m SO excited!

Now, I don’t know how heavy his involvement in this movie will be and that’s saddening because I’m really digging this character WAY more than Han Solo. But maybe that’s a good thing. Maybe Disney will see all of the positivity surrounding this new Lando and give him his own standalone film asap because he totally deserves one already. Whatever the case, I’m just hoping he’ll remain in the movie for at least an hour of the film’s time because that will make me very happy. 🙂

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day. May the Force be with you.

  1. Hello again, well you never know, Lando/DG may get his own standalone movie. And at least Lando should feature a little bit more than one Star Wars character – Boba Fett! He only got 5 lines to say in the films but fans are rallying for him to have his own movie.
    But I just hope Solo turns out to be a good (or better) film despite the odd vibes about it. Thanks for the post!
