With principal photography seemingly right around the corner, there’s a crackle of excitement swirling around Disney’s Han Solo anthology movie. It’s not due to arrive until 2018, and may actually be pushed back to December to coincide with The Force Awakens, Rogue One and Star Wars: Episode VIII, but with Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, possibly Woody Harrelson and Donald Glover all on board, it’s small wonder why the iconic nerf-herder is on everyone’s lips.

The latter actor was in attendance at last night’s Golden Globes ceremony, where his TV series Atlanta took home the prize for Best Television Series (Comedy/Musical). Before that happened, however, Variety was on hand to quiz Glover about both the show and his future projects, with a particular interest in the Han Solo movie.

Production is yet to begin, so the actor/musical maestro refrained from divulging too much, but Glover reaffirmed that he was overjoyed to land the part of the young Lando Calrissian, stating: “I was kinda shocked… I think I was kind of precious about it because, yeah, somebody has to do it. I’m super honored to have it.”

Lando, who was played so brilliantly by Billy Dee Williams in the original Star Wars trilogy, represents a fairly different character for Glover to sink his teeth into. A suave charm will be nigh on mandatory, while the chemistry between both he and Ehrenreich’s younger Han will arguably be one of the film’s crucial deciding factors.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s Han Solo prequel has been slated for May 25, 2018, but that date is reportedly subject to change. We’ll keep you posted one way or the other.

In the meantime, next up for Disney and Lucasfilm’s rejuvenated juggernaut is the launch of Episode VIII on December 15 of this year.
