Donald Glover Cast as Young Lando

On the official Star Wars account it has been confirmed what fandom has been recommending for ages for the upcoming young Han Solo movie. They wrote "Hello, what have we here? Donald Glover is Lando Calrissian in the untitled 2018 Han Solo Star Wars Story." The actor, mostly known for Community, recently starred in the TV series Atlanta and played a scientist in The Martian.

The Han Solo film will be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie, Community) who spoke about the casting. “We’re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us. These are big shoes to fill, and an even bigger cape, and this one fits him perfectly, which will save us money on alterations. Also, we’d like to publicly apologize to Donald for ruining Comic-Con for him forever.”

If not watching Atlanta, the next time you will see the actor is in Spider-Man: Homecoming in an unknown role.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer 2

Here is the newest trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (long title, prefer Star Wars: Rogue One). The movie will hit theaters on December 16, 2016.  The new trailer indicates a definite shift in time to something much more hopeful as the lead character and her team just seems more hopeful and enthusiastic about the Death Star mission then the previous trailer. Not sure if that is a good thing or not but the takeaway is this has become that much closer to be an Ocean's 11 in space.

New Rogue One Poster, Trailer Coming Today

Here is a new poster for Star Wars: Rogue One. In addition Disney said the new trailer for the movie will drop sometime today.
