It’s the moment fans of the Han Solo movie (opens in new tab) have all been waiting for. We’ve previously glimpsed his funky wardrobe (opens in new tab) but now we’ve finally got eyes on the first shot of Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. Oh and, hey, is he piloting the Millennium Falcon? Enjoy it while it lasts…
Director Ron Howard is enjoying teasing the rest of the galaxy with shots from the young Han Solo spinoff, with (possibly) Chewie’s wife being seen in a recent behind-the-scenes shot (opens in new tab) and, this time, he’s taken to Instagram to show off Lando with his head in the clouds.
It’s another one of those squint jobs, I’m afraid, but Glover is certainly rocking those space threads which, facial hair aside, is what makes Lando, Lando. Talking of facial hair, there’s no sign of the iconic nose caterpillar, with it being hard to make out on such a small screen. I’d wager a pint of blue milk that he’s piloting the Millennium Falcon at that very second too (it looks very Falcon-y), which is a pretty cool moment.
Donald Glover definitely looks the part – let’s just hope Ron Howard keeps liberally tossing out these shots from the movie as the 2018 release date nears ever closer without a trailer in sight.
What do you make of how young Lando looks? Let us know in the comments!
