In what is undoubtedly the least surprising news to come out of Solo: A Star Wars Story, the internet has immediately taken to Donald Glover’s portrayal of the iconic character.
Despite the many production problems that the film had most people were sold on the casting of Donald Glover as the younger version of Lando long before the film was released. Now that people have had a chance to see his take on the character, they appear to have liked him more then they would have thought. You can see a few reactions below:
Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian was one of the most amazing performances in Star Wars history. He is INCREDIBLE. Everything about his acting in #SoloMovie is phenomenal. He took a character that I liked and turned him into a character that I love. Give him all the awards 🏆 pic.twitter.com/AbDK7MIIZD

Despite a relatively weak box office opening, most who have seen the film seemed to have been pleasantly surprised by the end product. One of the big standouts of the film, obviously, was Donald Glover’s performance as the Han’s longtime friend. The performance immediately generated talks of giving the character his own film and it seems like the internet just might be behind such a project.
What did you all think of Donald Glover’s performance as Lando? Do you think he should get his own film? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Every ‘Star Wars’ Movie Ranked From Worst To Best
Star Wars was released in 1977 and has become one of the biggest film franchises in the history of cinema. Han Solo. Luke Skywalker. Princess Leia. Darth Vader. These characters have become synonymous with pop culture around the world.
Star Wars has transcended generations but when Revenge of the Sith was released in 2005, many fans assumed that this galaxy far far away had come to a close and we wouldn’t be seeing any new films. It wasn’t until 2012 that everything changed. On October 30, 2012, Disney announced a deal to purchase Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion. Since that purchase, Disney has brought Star Wars back to the main folds of pop culture with The Force Awakens and even Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
