Donald Glover only just arrived at a galaxy far, far away - but he's already landed his own Star Wars spin-off movie.

The Atlanta star plays intergalactic smuggler Lando Calrissian in the latest instalment of the iconic franchise, Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy spoke to Premiere France at the movie's Cannes Film Festival debut, where she revealed Glover's character will likely be front-and-centre soon.

"We think that the next spin-off will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian," she said.

"Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca, but Lando will be next."

Glover has already received rave reviews for his portrayal of the well-loved character in Solo, with critics praising him as "tremendous" and "charming x1000".

He's also known by his musician name, Childish Gambino. His recently released single, 'This Is America', garnered international attention for it's politically-charged lyrics and video.
