Sorry, Lando, I’m going to need to disagree with you right here. This information is getting higher on a regular basis. Weeks after it was revealed that Donald Glover and his brother Stephen had taken over the previously announced Lando Disney+ present from Justin Simien, now it appears it gained’t be a present in any respect. It’ll be a film.
Stephen Glover revealed the swap whereas showing on the Pablo Torre Finds Out podcast, which was later confirmed by the Hollywood Reporter. Nonetheless, as one may count on, the challenge is on maintain because of the present writers’ and actors’ strikes.
When the information of the Glovers taking on broke in July, it had already been official internally for some time. The information simply hadn’t leaked to the general public but. So it’s unclear if the Glovers began engaged on the challenge as a collection, and adjusted it to a film, or if it was a film within the first place. There’s additionally no assure this occurs in any respect. Extra Star Wars motion pictures than you’ll be able to depend have been in varied levels of improvement up to now a number of years and solely a really small few have made it to the large display screen.
But when there’s a prequel that’s begging for the large display screen, Lando is it, proper? Particularly if it’s written by the Glovers, greatest recognized for Atlanta, with Donald to star. It’s the proper place to perhaps wrap up a number of of the free ends left by Solo: A Star Wars Story whereas additionally giving extra scope and context to everybody’s favourite gambler/scoundrel/chief/normal.
What do you concentrate on this information? Is a Lando film higher than a Disney+ present? Will this film ever truly occur? And why wasn’t it one of many movie initiatives introduced at Celebration earlier this yr? A lot to debate beneath.
