Star Wars fans will be excited for the release of the franchise prequel Solo: A Star Wars Story, which hits cinemas later this month and promises a look at the younger days of Han Solo (now played by Alden Ehrenreich) and his friends. One of those friends is, of course, the gambler and future administrator of Cloud City, Lando Calrissian, who is now played by Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino.
