Solo: A Star Wars Story Was on Lucasfilm's Slate Before Disney Acquisition

Donald Glover, who stars as a younger but just as debonair Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story, said if Lando ever came back to screens, he needed to play him.

Alden Ehrenreich must have felt as though Harrison Ford's shadow was everywhere as they shot Solo: A Star Wars Story, and in one interview, it turned out that Ford was even closer than he might have expected!

"Get out of my chair", Ford responded gruffly. "Get out of my life", Ford growled before shaking hands with and hugging the younger actor as Howard clapped and everyone in the room laughed. "I don't like your odds, '" Glover said. Originally, it was gonna be me and [then-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller] and the head of the studio [Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy] and stuff and then, scheduling it, it was just me.

Ehrenreich could hardly compose himself after the encounter.


The film's director was standing alongside Ford, having set up the whole thing.

"I have to say, I've known Harrison a long time", Howard told ET. He can be great, he can be supportive. I mean, I think you know one of the things though that's interesting is, I want to see a Lando film very similar way to the way I think Larry was excited by a Han film. "That's really special", he gushed. I was told that I could do anything I wanted with it, and that was kind of irresistible. "That was exactly what I needed to hear".

Howard is now promoting his upcoming contribution to the Star Wars franchise, and recently revealed that Solo: A Star Wars Story was part-inspired by Willow.

The new standalone movie's official logline reads, "Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in "Solo: A Star Wars Story", an adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy".
