Donald Glover and Brother Stephen to Write Lando Series for Disney+

Variety has confirmed that Donald Glover and his brother Stephen will take over writing the upcoming Disney+ “Lando” series. News of a Lando series emerged in 2020, with Justin Simien attached to the project. Simien directed Disney’s Haunted Mansion, which is currently in theaters. Glover portray a younger version of Lando Calrissian in 2018’s Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Back in April Glover told GQ, “I would love to play Lando again. It’s a fun time, being him. It just has to be the right way to do it. Time is precious…You only get so much. I’m not interested in doing anything that’s going to be a waste of my time or just a paycheck. I’d much rather spend time with people that I enjoy. It just has to be the right thing, and I think it could be. Lando is definitely somebody I like to hang out with.”

Donald Glover, also known by his stage name Childish Gambino, has had a remarkable and diverse career in both film and television. His journey began in the early 2000s with writing and performing sketch comedy for the internet, which eventually led him to be hired as a writer for the hit comedy series “30 Rock.”

Glover’s break into mainstream recognition came when he starred as Troy Barnes in the cult-favorite comedy series “Community,” showcasing his exceptional comedic timing and acting versatility. As his popularity soared, he ventured into music under the moniker Childish Gambino, releasing several successful albums that earned him critical acclaim and a dedicated fan base.

In addition to his success in television, Glover’s film career also flourished. He portrayed Lando Calrissian in the blockbuster hit “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” bringing charm and charisma to the iconic character. However, it was his ambitious and thought-provoking work as both writer and director in the critically acclaimed series “Atlanta” that cemented his reputation as a multi-talented creative force.

The show explored various aspects of the African American experience in a unique and unconventional manner, earning numerous accolades and awards. Donald Glover’s career remains an extraordinary journey marked by creativity, innovation, and the ability to effortlessly transition between comedy, drama, music, and film.

Glover will now return to the writers chair to bring this Star Wars Icon back to life in an upcoming show. Bob Iger has recently said that Lucasfilm and Disney will scale back their Star Wars and Marvel content, so there is no word as to how that would effect a Lando series.
