Back in 1983, when all we knew of Lando Calrissian was The Empire Strikes Back, L. Neil Smith wrote a trio of novels that fleshed out the life of the smooth-talking Baron of Cloud City and took place before we met him in the movies. It was a rare chance to get insight into a time when Lando owned the Falcon - something we'll get a lot more of when Solo: A Star Wars Story lands in a few weeks -- but they were also some of the weirdest Star Wars novels around.

For fans, the fact that Solo: A Star Wars Story is going to show the legendary moment where Han Solo wins the Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian is kind of mind-blowing. It's one of those things we've always imagined, but now we get to see it. But if you can't just wait another month to know what happens, you're in luck. Disney screened the scene at CinemaCon 2018 in Las Vegas and here's how it goes down.

Star Wars fans everywhere let out a collective whoop when Disney announced Donald Glover would be playing a younger version of Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Han Solo film. His outsize charm and sly wit makes him a seemingly perfect fit for the galaxy's boldest gambler. But if you want to take your excitement about Glover becoming a space hustler to the next level, you need to listen to his recent retro-funk album.

Billy Dee Williams created Lando, and although Donald Glover has been cast as the character in the standalone Han Solo film, Williams says he never thought of what it would be like for someone else to be Lando. And, you know what? That is more than fair.
