Are the adventures of Lando Calrissian too big to contain to a simple streaming series? That seems to be the case, as Stephen Glover, Donald Glover’s brother and co-writer on Star Wars: Lando, has revealed that Lucasfilm is turning what was originally meant to be a TV series into a feature film, with Glover returning to the role following his appearance as the gambler and smuggler in 2018’s Solo: A Star Wars Story. Sources with IGN have corroborated the news, while fans of Billy Dee Williams, who played Calrissian in the original trilogy, can see his older version of the character in Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker.

…IGN’s source adds, however, that this has been the case for some time, as Disney is not currently negotiating with the Glovers per the terms of the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.

This past April…Donald Glover told GQ that he was “talking about it” with Lucasfilm. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy gave me a slightly more promising update when I asked her about it at Star Wars Celebration later that month, saying, “I can just tell you it’s still happening, and he’s very excited about it,” all but confirming Donald Glover’s involvement.
