Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s upcoming Star Wars anthology film, the currently untitled, Han Solo film has really stepped up its game recently. With the casting of Atlanta star, Donald Glover, as the ever charming Lando Calrissian, the film has instantly become one of 2018’s biggest releases. The film will apparently detail the adventures of Han Solo before he met Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi in A New Hope, with great emphasis on how he and Chewbacca became the greatest of allies. There is currently no word on how Glover’s Lando will tie into the picture, but we do have a nice juicy detail regarding one component of the film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will finally reveal how Lando lost his beloved Millennium Falcon to the smuggler himself, Han Solo. The outlet revealed:
[Lando] has a competitive and strained friendship with Solo, having lost the starship Millennium Falcon to the smuggler and future Rebel commander in a card game.
