Earlier this week Donald Glover took part in a panel for the second season of ATLANTA for the TCA. After the panel was done, Glover spoke with reporters on a variety of topics including his portrayal of Lando Calrissian and shooting SOLO.

Even discussed a shot that Ron Howard will be the first to catch of the Millennium Falcon.

“I remember going on set one of the first times, he was like, ‘Yeah, I want to follow you onto the Millennium Falcon and do this thing,’” Glover said. “I was like, ‘I don’t think I’ve ever seen the outside go into the inside.’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, no one’s ever done that shot.’ As a fan I was like yeah, I was really excited. I know there’s been a lot of talk in the press about this movie but for me anyway, it was a dream and also it looks really cool to me.”

Since Howard stepped in to direct after Phil Lord and Chris Miller were let go, Glover revealed he hardly had any reshoots.

“I remember going on set one of the first times, he was like, ‘Yeah, I want to follow you onto the Millennium Falcon and do this thing,’” Glover said. “I was like, ‘I don’t think I’ve ever seen the outside go into the inside.’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, no one’s ever done that shot.’ As a fan I was like yeah, I was really excited. I know there’s been a lot of talk in the press about this movie but for me anyway, it was a dream and also it looks really cool to me.”

“Not a ton actually,” Glover said. “Not a lot at all, at least not for me. I think we’ve all never been faced with anything like that and I think he did a good job of coming and tell us he didn’t want to change what we were doing at all. He wanted us to remain confident in our vision. He just wanted to sculpt it in a way.”

Glover even spoke about Howard’s support of his version of Lando. “It was actually good to get another person on there who was like, ‘What do you think of this?’” Glover said. “He grew up under Lucas and really is a fan himself.”

When asked about the advice that Billy Dee Williams gave Glover, “He just told me to stay charming”. “I was like thats the best advice ever”.

Oh and Glover did confirm he will be donning the famous cape!

I can’t wait to see where Glover takes Lando, what are your thoughts?
