I for one appreciate it when we get the heads up that a new trailer is coming out. It gives me time to mentally prepare, to know when I need to be on social media or in front of the TV, and I get a kick out of the hype! Solo: A Star Wars Story dropped a new trailer and poster yesterday and- guys- Donald Glover as Lando is giving me life.
The new Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer is out and… well, I’m just going to go ahead and start the campaign for Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian in his own stand-alone movie right here.
In fact, why didn’t we start there in the first place?! I feel like that’s the movie we really wanted to see.
Don’t get me wrong- I love Han Solo too.
I mean, what’s not to love about our favorite scruffy nerf herding pilot?
He’s a great character that we’ve loved for many years, so hearing his backstory and beginnings should be a fun ride!
And I am legit excited (finally? Yes, I’ll admit it’s taking me a little bit of time to get excited about this one) to see it in the theaters on May 25th.
Solo: A Star Wars Story Official Trailer
I have a feeling my entire family of Star Wars fans will love this one based on the trailers we’ve seen so far. Especially this most recent one that came out yesterday.
Have you seen it yet? What do you think about this one?
I love how much Chewie we seem to be getting in this one. I’m still mad he didn’t get a medal like everyone else in Episode 4, so at least he gets more of a starring role in this one.
And I see that smart alec Han showing more and more with each trailer release. Since there were some concerns about casting in the fandom, I’m liking what I see so far.
Especially liking my man, Lando. More on that in a minute.
Solo: A Star Wars Story Poster
The poster is gorgeous too.
I love the retro look they are giving with this film and as a child of the 70s, it’s appreciated that there might be some nods to the original films in subtle ways.
Donald Glover As Lando: We Need a #LandoMovie
When the Solo: A Star Wars Story cast was announced, my biggest “Han Solo flying in to save the day Yahooo! moment” came when I saw Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian.
Because: welp. You be the judge.
And did you see that trailer? Go ahead and watch it again. I’ll wait.
The Lando character has always been a favorite of mine – even when I was(spoiler alert!) super mad at him for betraying Han in Empire.
I still dug him.
The arc during that movie has always made me want more Lando in my Star Wars movies, so I’m not joking when I say we need to make #LandoMovie happen.
Who’s with me?
Until then- I’ll content myself with seeing bae in Solo: A Star Wars Story on May 25th.
Because— I’m all in!
