Donald Glover has revealed that discussions have taken place between himself and Disney regarding a potential return to the Star Wars universe.

Solo: A Star Wars Story was released in 2018 and received mixed reviews from critics, while it is considered to be a box office bomb, the biggest in the history of the Star Wars series in fact.

At the time of the movie's release, Variety reported that it needed to make $500 million just to break even when accounting for production and marketing costs. Its total worldwide gross was $393m.

One of the highlights of the movie for fans was Glover's performance as Lando Calrissian, who was played by Billy Dee Williams in the original Star Wars trilogy. 

A spin-off movie focusing on Lando has previously been mentioned, and the Community star would certainly be interested in a return.

"We're talking about it. That's as much as I can say without (Lucasfilm president) Kathleen Kennedy hunting me down," Glover told GQ when asked about acting in another Star Wars production.

"I would love to play Lando again. It's a fun time, being him. It just has to be the right way to do it. Time is precious. The past couple of years, this pandemic s***, it really had people experience time. People realise their time is valuable. You only get so much.

"I'm not interested in doing anything that's going to be a waste of my time or just a paycheck. I'd much rather spend time with people that I enjoy.

"It just has to be the right thing, and I think it could be. Lando is definitely somebody I like to hang out with."

Solo sequel not a priority for Disney

Fans of Solo: A Star Wars story won't be happy to hear recent comments from director Ron Howard regaring a potential sequel.

Howard, who stepped into the director's chair after previous directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller left over creative differences, doesn't believe a Solo sequel is a priority for the studio.

“The only discussion that I’m aware of about a sequel for Solo is coming from the fans at this point," the director revealed to NME.

“I don’t think it’s a Lucasfilm priority, as I understand it.

Howard did go on to say that a sequel was not out of the question for the future, however.

“There’s some great characters launched, and the folks from Lucasfilm love the fans and really do listen so I would never say never – but I’m not aware of any concrete plans right now to extend the story or deal with that particular set of characters," he explained.
