Donald Glover Reacts To Possibly Directing A ‘Star Wars’ Film One Day


Having broken the diversity barrier  Sunday night at the Emmy’s, along with Master of None’s Lena Waithe, Donald Glover had a lot to say after his historical win and endearing acceptance speech(es), especially when it came to possibly one day directing a film in the galaxy far, far away.

The Atlanta actor-writer-director, who is also playing young Lando Calrissian in the still untitled Han Solo movie, spoke with Entertainment Tonight about the possibility of taking the directing reins for a Star Wars film one day after becoming the first Black filmmaker to win Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series.

“I would be honored, but it’s a big plate, its a big plate. That’s a buffet plate… I don’t know if I’m ready for that yet.”

Even with fans clamoring for him to direct a big budget film, the humble multitalented artist admitted he does have a lot on his plate right now. A second season of Atlanta begins filming this week, he has a musical project in the works and just wrapped Star Wars with new director Ron Howard. He also announced during his acceptance, that he has a baby on the way. Also, given the rollercoaster Lucafilms president Kathleen Kennedy has put directors on ( Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, Colin Trevorrow and Gareth Edwards), Glover may want to stick to Atlanta for a little while.

8 ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Off Movies We Really Want To See

Previous1 of 9

Star Wars-SagaMay the 4th be with you, everyone! Even on May the 8th! With Star Wars weekend in the rear-view mirror, it’s still a great time to kick back, get out your old glow-in-the-dark lightsaber toys and Darth Vader Halloween masks, and pop in those original trilogy DVDs. Maybe even all 8 currently-released films, if you’re up for the challenge (both mental and otherwise). Speaking of which, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just came out on Blu-ray, marking the first home release of many Star Wars spin-off movies to come.

Of these, only one future title has been confirmed – Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, to be released in May of 2018. Beyond that, we know Disney had at least two more planned, and probably more down the line. And why not? The Star Wars universe is so ripe for exploration. There are so many characters we were introduced to in the Saga movies that could easily get their own film. And it doesn’t stop there. The legacy of the Jedi and the Sith go back thousands of years, opening up virtually endless possibilities of story material.

Given this abundance of material just waiting to be tapped into, Heroic Hollywood decided to celebrate the Star Wars holiday by compiling a list of the Star Wars stand-alone movies we’d most like to see. While some of the films on this list are more likely to be developed than others, they each share one unifying factor: they’d all be freakin’ awesome!
