Solo: A Star Wars Story introduces us to another new set of characters. This is obviously necessary so as to ensure the back story actually sustains movie goers' and fans' interest. A few familiar faces in the movie; however, the best and most interesting is Glover, who plays the role of Lando Calrissian.
Solo: A Star Wars Story - Red Carpet Opening
We were first introduced to Lando Calrissian, then, played by Billy Dee Williams, in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Rumors in the UK have it that Glover's Lando has opened up the opportunity for Billy Dee Williams to return in Star Wars 9. Let's get back to Solo.
"Solo" A Star Wars Story
This installment of Star Wars does all of us a huge favor: shows an android (robot+Artificial Intelligence) with characteristics identical to those of us humans. We are injected into an ongoing and obviously festering set of unresolved issues.
The android and Glover's character, Lando, have obviously experienced a great deal together and as a result a human-to-machine and machine-to-human bond has formed. Is it a romantic bond? See the movie and let us know.
Until next time, see you on the radio.
