Disney+ is set to feature a fresh series centered around the Star Wars character, Lando Calrissian, to be penned by Donald Glover and his brother Stephen Glover, according to reports from The Hollywood Reporter and Above the Line. The agreement was reportedly settled before the writers’ strike and sees the Glover brothers stepping in after Justin Simien’s departure from Lando. The character of Calrissian was previously portrayed by Donald Glover in the 2018 prequel, Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Having recently concluded their work on Atlanta, the Glovers are currently under an exclusive deal with Amazon, which earlier this year released their show, Swarm, as well as the 2019 film, Guava Island. Donald Glover also recently unveiled the inaugural teaser for his forthcoming Amazon series, Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
