Lucasfilm revealed in December 2020 that Justin Simien, the founder of Dear White People, was in the early stages of creating a limited series about Lando Calrissian, appropriately titled Lando. Donald Glover, who played Lando in Solo: A Star Wars Story, was not mentioned, so it’s uncertain whether the part would be recast.
Star Wars: The Acolyte
Leslye Headland, the creator/showrunner of Russian Doll and the director of Sleeping with Other People, was hired by Lucasfilm in April 2020 to write and direct a new Star Wars series that takes place in a different part of the Star Wars timeline than other plans. The Acolyte, one of the upcoming Disney Plus Star Wars shows, is the title of the mystery-thriller series, which will be led by a female character. The story brings viewers through a galaxy of sinister secrets and emerging dark-side forces in the final days of the High Republic period.
