Just as a result of Star Wars Celebration was once canceled this yr and Comic Con has been relegated to an completely at-home enjoy doesn’t imply that the possible geek bombshells aren’t being dropped this week. A podcast called Kessel Run Transmissions claims that Donald Glover will go back to the position of Lando Calrissian for a brand new Disney+ unique collection. A consultant for Disney didn’t in an instant reply to a request for remark.
Now, whilst this may make very best sense (Glover was once undoubtedly the spotlight of the in a different way middling Solo: A Star Wars Story), it additionally turns out extremely not going, given how in-demand Glover is as a performer, musician (below his Childish Gambino moniker) and writer (his loved FX collection Atlanta will likely be again one day). Lando can be an enormous draw for Disney+, particularly if Glover had some position within the display’s introduction (you realize he’d need to discover Lando’s sexual dating with that robotic), nevertheless it’s questionable how to be had he can be for a undertaking of that scale and complexity, particularly given the large time commitments concerned.
That stated, he perceived to have a great time on Solo regardless of its notoriously bothered manufacturing, with Disney acquiescing to his many requests (like flying the Atlanta writing body of workers to London in order that he may paintings on a brand new season of the display whilst they have been filming). And the rumor means that they agreed to pay him so much for his involvement in a coming near near unique collection.
And whilst the supply may sound doubtful, Kessel Run Transmissions additionally broke the news about The Bad Batch, the Clone Wars spin-off coming to Disney+, weeks earlier than its legit announcement. So whilst they could be unknown, they’re some distance from unproven. And if Lucasfilm actually did need to blow the doorways off of Star Wars Celebration, this will surely be easy methods to do it.
