Lando Calrissian is all set to be one of your new favorite characters from Star Wars. During the Super Bowl, the first trailer for the upcoming spinoff from Star Wars titled Solo: A Star Wars Story was released.
It was a 45 second TV spot showcasing various different characters from the mysterious past of Han Solo, and none of them was more appealing than that young Lando Calrissian played by Donald Glover.
Originally the character was played by Billy Dee Williams, and he was well received by the Star Wars fans. But, the excitement about the character sky-rocketed when Solo was announced, and it was also revealed that Glover, famous for his hip-hop alter ego called Childish Gambino would be playing the younger Lando Calrissian. Fans all over the world considered this to be a great choice.
As seen in the TV spot, the fans were spot on.
At almost 30 seconds into the footage, there is a scene featuring Lando. He was seen standing in the front in some kind of rock formation and wore a very royal, fur coat. The high-end clothing and impeccably combed facial hair mean that this is the Lando that the fans were waiting for.
The TV spot also suggested that the full trailer would be revealed on Monday. It had earlier been declared that the trailer would air during the Monday Morning episode of Good Morning America.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is scheduled to release on May 25.
