Star Wars Solo Movie: Lando Actor Shows Us The Millennium Falcon's Cape Room And Cocktail Bar
Glover and out.
Although the Han Solo is--clearly--the main character in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, his friend and rival Lando Calrissian is also set to play a major part in the story. The smooth-talking gambler is played by Atlanta star Donald Glover, and he now presents a new promotional video for the Star Wars spin-off.
Fans looking for some new footage from Solo might be disappointed, but the video is still pretty cool. Glover takes us on a tour of the franchise's most iconic ship--the Millennium Falcon. We see the living quarters, with leather seats and a kick-ass sound system, the coffee and cocktail bar, and the ship's bedroom, "where the magic happens." Glover also tells us that the ship never looked better than when Lando owned it, and to finish things off, demonstrates the ship's hyperspace capabilities. Check it out above.
This video follows one released earlier this week that delivered quite a bit of new footage, including exchanges between Han and Lando, plus some new aliens. We've also had this TV spot, and the second trailer was released in March.
Solo: A Star Wars Story also stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han and Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, plus Woody Harrelson, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Emilia Clarke. It hits theaters on May 25, 2018. Ehrenreich recently let slip that his contract covers three appearances as Han, so we could be seeing more of the actor in the iconic role.
In related news, it was announced in February that Jungle Book director Jon Favreau is developing a new live-action Star Wars TV show. The series is set to premiere on Disney's streaming platform, which launches next year. This is in addition to the two new Star Wars movie series in the work, one from Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, the other overseen by Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
