Lando was among the first series showcased as Lucasfilm’s future for their Star Wars ventures on Disney+. Yet, the series has pretty much been missing in action ever since, and was long believed that it may have just been dropped at some point completely. Across the three years development cycle, Dear White People creator Justin Simien joined production only to leave it later to direct Haunted Mansion.
Now, it seems that the project is alive after all. Atlanta and Swarm writers, Donald Glover and his brother Stephen Glover have joined the production to revive the long-dormant project. This deal did happen before the writer’s strike and who knows if it’ll still remain given it’s now facing a delay before it even got started. As such, it also seems like we finally got the confirmation it’ll see Glover reprise his role from Solo: A Star Wars Story.
This series might be the only chance for them to continue the set-up from that film’s post-credit sequence that has long been dormant. Though, the strike keeps many of the current developments as a big question mark until the studios finally return to the table and give their talent the money they deserve for the work they invested. So, we’ll see what the future holds once a fair deal has been found.
