Justin Simien, the creator of Dear White People is creating the series. No mention if Donald Glover or Billy Dee Williams will be back for this. There was only a sizzle reel of old Lando footage shown during Disney Investor Day.
While Solo: A Star Wars Story didn’t resonate like other recent Disney/Lucasfilm Star Wars movies grossing only $392M-plus WW, a far cry from the series $1 billion-plus box office a piece, Glover won high praise for his turn as a young Lando and his name was trending on Twitter mere minutes after the announcement. It will be truly sublime for Star Wars fans if the multi-hyphenate artist returns in the cape.
Kennedy also showed footage today to the new Star Wars animated series The Bad Batch.
Leslye Headland brings a new @StarWars series to @DisneyPlus with The Acolyte. “The Acolyte” is a mystery-thriller that will take viewers into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and emerging dark-side powers in the final days of the High Republic era.
