          Childish Gambino did a marvelous job at playing Lando Calrissian. He sounded just like him and looked like him too... The casting directors did a good job by choosing him... I believed he really was a young Lando...... I'm old I watched the original..lmao!!

            Billy Dee Williams uses a cane? Huh.. I didn't know that. They should incorporate that into his character in episode 9. Old Lando with a pimp cane would be awesome and totally something Lando would have.

                                      Did Disney just not bother inviting Williams to the sequel trilogy or Williams turned it down?

There was some really cringe moments in the film. What they portrayed in the film is not Lando. He supposed to be suave, smooth, and a lady's man; a man every woman wants and every man wants to be. He was supposed to be like a 19 century gambling, outlawed space cowboy; imagine John Wayne or Clint Eastwood. So, instead of having an Elvis, or James Brown swagger, it's more reminiscent of Liberace; Lando in Solo has more of a artist formerly know as Prince swagger. These characters are based off spaghetti westerns but in space; e.g. a Space Western, where Lucas took the ideas from. Gunslinger, outlaws (smugglers), Sabacc card player (irl 19 century poker tables), for fuck sake even down to the way Solo holsters his gun, and Beckett gun slings in the film. Try to imagine Val Kilmer's Doc Holiday in Tombstone. (SPOILERS) Like they have Qi'ra trying on his capes in his large walk-in closet fashion collection, and created the subtext that he might be having relations with his droid. SMH. Even down to the way he sits down at the table, with a silk scarf, sitting with sass not swagger, with his fingers holding up his head with long finger nails. His fucking shirt looks like a ladies silk top with scarf (Band-Collar Silk Blouse with Scarf Ties) https://www.bergdorfgoodman.com/Fendi-Band-Collar-Silk-Blouse-with-Scarf-Ties/prod132480031/p.prod? <<<< Look there if you want a good picture of it. I'm completely done with Disney-LucasFilm. They are changing well established characters. I can understand them making new characters but they are changing well est ones.
