Step into a galaxy where charisma and cunning become the most potent weapons, where a lone figure navigates the precarious balance between friend and foe, and where the allure of the unknown holds the key to thrilling escapades. After a prolonged quiet period, a flurry of significant progress regarding the Star Wars Lando Calrissian series has unexpectedly surged. Initial revelations about the show emerged in December 2020, bearing the name of writer Justin Simien. However, recent weeks have ushered in the confirmation that Donald Glover, acclaimed for his portrayal of Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story, will co-write the series alongside his brother Stephen. Here is everything we know about the upcoming series.
Lando Season 1 Release Date: When Will it Air?
Disney has not yet provided an official release date for the Lando Calrissian series, suggesting that it’s still in its preliminary phases of creation. The initial announcement of the series occurred in December 2020; however, scant details have surfaced regarding its progression. Positioned towards the latter portion of Disney’s Star Wars lineup, it seems improbable that the series will debut before 2024.
Lando Season 1 Cast: Who Can We Expect?
Donald Glover is anticipated to return as Lando Calrissian. At the same time, the original Lando actor, Billy Dee Williams, is also expected to have a role after a brief appearance in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The status is uncertain for Donald Glover’s co-stars from Solo: A Star Wars Story. For instance, Emilia Clarke, who portrayed Qi’ra, the leader of the Crimson Dawn crime syndicate, mentioned on a 2021 Happy Sad Confused podcast episode that she hasn’t been approached yet for involvement in a Lando-related series. During Star Wars Celebration 2022 with Total Film, Kathleen Kennedy shared that she is open to recasting the character, although her preference still lies with Donald Glover. As the series progresses, Disney’s casting updates will hopefully provide more clarity on this matter.
Lando Season 1 Plot: What will Happen?
Disney has kept a tight lid on any plot details for the upcoming Lando Calrissian series, leaving us in the dark even about the period it will be situated in. Regardless of the plot’s direction, it’s plausible that Lando will leverage his charming social skills to execute complex hustles, reminiscent of what we glimpsed in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Despite initially betraying Han Solo to the Empire, his path toward redemption involves rescuing his old comrade and leading the Rebel fleet in a decisive assault on the Death Star. There’s a possibility that the series could delve into Lando’s backstory and origins, but for now, we’ll have to await further information.
Lando Season 1 Trailer: When Will We See It?
The trailer is not available yet for the Lando Calrissian series. Due to its distant release, we shouldn’t expect to see any initial footage in the near future. While waiting, fans can enjoy similar shows like “The Mandalorian” for action-packed Star Wars tales and “Firefly” for a mix of sci-fi and Western adventures. Disney also has several shows that you a stream before the series trailer is out. Some of these shows include Class of ’09” which follows a group of FBI agents‘ contribution to the criminal justice system, and The Muppets Mayhem, the comedy animation series.
