Everyone’s favorite scoundrel Lando Calrissian will return in a brand-new event series for Disney+. Justin Simien, creator of the critically-acclaimed Dear White People and a huge Star Wars fan, is developing the story.
 

^ From the ‘Future Lucasfilm Projects Revealed’ article up on the official Star Wars website.

Maybe we’ll finally see the Battle of Taanab.

As others have said in the old Lando movie thread it’d be great to have Billy Dee narrating the “Calrissian Chronicles” style adventures… while we see the action with Donald Glover.

And hopefully we also see Qi’ra, Enfys Nest, Crimson Dawn and other characters from Solo - set in and around that timeline too…

 

Maybe even quality artwork for the series akin to something like this as well?:

I really hope both Billy Dee and Donald Glover appear. It would make such a great show.

I second this.

A Lando show starring Donald Glover but narrated by Billy Dee Williams would be perfect, but that’s probably too much to ask for. 😉

Man, those one-sheets are fantastic. The thought of what the series could be is certainly making this one of my favorites of all those announced shows. I agree that a Billy Dee Williams narrated show starring Glover would be top notch.

I remember a report from earlier this year saying they were both attached to star in a show but it wasn’t confirmed. I’ll have to find it.
