Donald Glover admits worries about Star Wars Han Solo movie's director switch

Given that the Star Wars lore has made it abundantly clear that the Millennium Falcon was constructed from a variety of scrapped parts, with the iconic ship most recently being referred to as "junk" in 2015's The Force Awakens, a junkyard filled with hodgepodge metal pieces seems like the flawless location to include in the untitled Han Solo pic. But the Community alum is a true nerd through and through, admitting in a new interview he didn't have to research a thing about Star Wars.

Glover was spotted with Williams at lunch in January and has now spoken about the meeting with The Hollywood Reporter.

"[But Phil and Chris] hired us, so you sort of feel like, 'I know I'm not your first choice...' And you worry about that".

"To be honest, I don't know exactly what happened", he continued. "How did you feel?'" The oldest child is like, "We know what's happening, but we are keeping you out of it".

Billy Dee Williams played the character in the final two films of the original Star Wars trilogy - The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi.

And, it's not just TV and movies Glover has been busy with. I guess he was doing what normal actors do, they just want to find out what direction they want to take so they gather their information.

Regarding the part of Lando in the still-unnamed Han Solo movie, Glover's story reveals how much thought Glover has given to the character, who - in the movies at least - wasn't that fleshed out. It's possible that they are dining at a local cantina, which is not only a place that virtually every Star Wars movie incorporates but also the type of establishment that Han Solo tends to frequent.

The still-untitled Han Solo film will be released on May 25, 2018.
