The film will depict Lando in his formative years, ‘as a scoundrel on the rise in the galaxy’s underworld — years before the events involving Han, Leia, and Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back and his rise to Rebel hero in Return of the Jedi’.

In a statement directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller said: “We’re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us.”
