Donald Glover Shares Glimpse At Lando On The Falcon

By: Benjamin Hart

Although his name is in the title, there's another character besides Han Solo that fans are equally, if not more excited to see on screen in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Lando Calrissian, whom we haven't seen in the flesh since 1983's Return Of The Jedi, is returning to the big screen courtesy of Donald Glover, who is portraying a younger version of the character originated by Billy Dee Williams.

With less than 50 days left until the premiere of Solo, Glover himself is helping to build the hype with a new photo posted to his Instagram. The picture is of himself as Lando on board the Millennium Falcon. The shot catches Glover from behind as he seemingly strolls down the pristinely white hallways of the iconic freighter. You can check out the photo below:
