“I mean, I would love to play Lando again,” Glover said in a GQ video. “It’s a fun time to be him. It just needs to be the right way to do it. I’m all about, like, now it’s like time is precious. I think everybody—like the past couple of years, this pandemic shit—really had people experience time in a way where they’re like, ‘Well … I should be around oranges!’ People kind of realize their time is valuable. You only get so much.”

News of the Glovers’ creative involvement in Lando series comes after Disney CEO Bob Iger stated that the company intends on scaling back on Marvel and Star Wars projects due to a “diluted focus and attention” among audiences and decision-makers.

With three “confirmed” marquee movies and several shows already in the Star Wars pipeline, it seemed uncertain Disney would invest in Lando.

But when the Glover brothers call, you have to pick up.
