While everyone kind of assumed we would at some point be getting some information and/or news on the a young Lando Calrissian cameo or perhaps even playing a major role in the upcoming Star Wars Spin-off Han Solo film, nothing was confirmed until now!
According to a report released just a little while ago by The Wrap, Lord and Miller's Young Han Solo film starring Alden Ehrenreich has the titular hero will officially need to cast a younger Lando Calrissian. While the report didn't go into any details on who the potential young Lando candidates are, we can all assume that Michael B. Jordan is among those. He has been rumored for years to play the role. However I would rather see someone who isn't so recognizable truly transform into the legendary character originated by the great Billy Dee Williams!
So far Disney and Lucasfilm have made good on their promise to bring Star Wars back! With last year's incredible Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the on going series Star Wars Rebels. Plus we will have the official trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story dropping later this afternoon. Lets just say right now is a glorious time to be a Star Wars fan!
So what do you guys think? Who would make a good Lando? Do we need a young Lando in the first Young Solo film? Sound off in the comments section down below with your thoughts on report! As always thanks for stopping by and please Bookmark EastCoastMovieGuys!
The Young Han Solo film is set to hit theaters in 2018.
