Glover previously discussed the idea of reprising his role as Lando Calrissian during an interview with GQ back in April. He explained at the time: "I would love to play Lando again. It's a fun time, being him. It just has to be the right way to do it. Time is precious. I'm not interested in doing anything that's going to be a waste of my time or just a paycheck. I'd much rather spend time with people that I enjoy. It just has to be the right thing, and I think it could be. Lando is definitely somebody I like to hang out with."
