Disney is making a new series in the Star Wars universe. It will tell the story of Lando Calrissian. Lando is one of the best-loved figures in the franchise.
A person from “Empire Strikes Back” is going to have a show. This person has been friends with Han Solo for a long time and was in some bad things that happened on Bespin. This is what we know about Star Wars: Lando.
A smuggler is back in action. Lando Calrissian has just landed his own Star Wars series for Disney+. A new Star Wars show will be made. The Mandalorian is one of these shows. Lando will be in the show along with Rosario Dawson (Ahsoka).
Up with Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia Organa is Lando. They are part of the “old crowd” that made George Lucas’ original trilogy one of the greatest. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has ended. But JJ Abrams made a surprise for the fans. He brought back Lando who was in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, also played by Billy Dee Williams.
In the film Solo: A Star Wars Story, there was a performance of Lando by Donald Glover. Donald Glover is now getting a promotion to be in the front and center of Lando for future films. The Charismatic Con Artist first appeared in 1980’s Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. There are some 40 years of official and expanded canon for this character to pull from.
What is the release date of Star Wars: Lando?
Disney announced a new Lando series. They said it’s in its early stages, so it will be a while before it is on TV. It will need to find a free space among other new Star Wars products. They are The Acolyte, Rangers of the New Republic, The Book of BobaFett, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor, Ahsoka, and Visions.
Don’t forget the third season of the show The Mandalorian. It is a very successful and popular show where everyone is in space and it’s like a Western.
What is the plot of Star Wars: Lando?
There are not many rumors about the Lando series. It is not known what period it will be set in or run alongside The Mandalorian, before the events of A New Hope, or after the Rising of Skywalker. Kathleen Kennedy, who is in charge of Lucasfilm, said at Disney Investor Day 2020:
Lando Calrissian is a scoundrel and he will be in a new show on Disney+. He is very crafty and people like him. Justin Simien, who made the TV show Dear White People, will help make the show.
There is not much about Lando yet. More information will come out in the future. Some people have made guesses about the storyline of the movie, but they are still just guesses.
There is a plot at the end of the Star Wars movie, Rise of Skywalker, where Jannah and Lando head off to find out more about her life and background. Could these two characters form a partnership so they can explore the world of Star Wars without having to dovetail into the movies already made?
Lando Calrissian had adventures in the 1990s. They were written in books by L Neil Smith. This was mentioned in Solo when Donald Glover is writing his memoirs. The story could be used for future Star Wars novels.
Timothy Zahn, a famous writer in the Star Wars world, has also written some books about Lando. These include Winner Lose All and Scoundrels. The latter of these books is about Han Solo, Chewbacca, and an Ocean’s 11-style heist. Adding Han and Chewie to the show would make it more complicated to make the show. It is a good idea, but adding them would be hard.
Who will be starring in Star Wars: Lando?
No details on who will wear the cape and be the new hero. We hope that either Billy Dee Williams or Donald Glover will be in it, but we cannot know for sure yet.
The show Dear White People is being developed by Justin Simien. It will have some good dialogue and make you laugh. This is the type of show for Lando.
