First Glimpse at Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian in Star Wars Film

The Stars Wars legacy has been on a big uptick since the purchase of the franchise by Walt Disney Co. One of the changes has been in the actors portraying the main characters as the story continues to shed light on different nuances stemming from the original stories. Young Lando Calrissian will now be played by Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, as was announced late in 2016. Today (July 19), fans got their first glimpse of the actor/musician in action via director Ron Howard‘s Instagram post.
