Donald Glover’s First Toy Ever Was Lando And Now He’s Playing Him In ‘Star Wars’

Written by Sam Murphy on October 27, 2016

Donald Glover AKA Chilidish Gambino AKA multitalented genius has given his first interview since it was revealed that he would be playing Lando in the forthcoming Star Wars film.

Glover sat down with Ellen to talk about the role saying that he was “honoured” and that it’s “really crazy”.

“It’s a very big deal,” he said.

“There’s this thing going around the internet of me in a Star Wars t-shirt when I was in high school so it’s a long thing.”

The “thing” he’s referring to is the picture of Glover wearing a Star Wars t-shirt in his year book photo which is making its way around the internet.

Glover also revealed that his first toys ever when he was a kid were Lando and Darth Vader. His Dad gave them to him and he was understandably pretty stoked when Glover told him that he would be in the forthcoming Star Wars.

His Mum was a little more cautious telling him, “don’t mess it up,” because she’s a big fan of the original actor Billy Dee Williams.

The movie, also starring Han Solo, is expected to be released in May 2018.

Glover will touch down here later this year to play Falls Festival and Field Day as Childish Gambino.
