Justin Simien — the writer, producer, and director of Dear White People — is creating a Lando Calrissian “event series” for Disney Plus, fittingly titled Star Wars: Lando.

The project is still in early stages of development, and Lucasfilm has yet to provide nearly any details on the project — including whether or not either Billy Dee Williams or Donald Glover, who have played the character in other live-action Star Wars installments, are attached to the project.

The new series joins several of the new Star Wars shows coming to Disney Plus in the future, along with two Mandalorian spin offs: Rangers of the New Republic and Ahsoka, as well as Star Wars: Andor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Star Wars: Lando, The Acolyte, the animated Clone Wars spin-off The Bad Batch, and the anime anthology Star Wars: Visions.

Disney also announced its next theatrical Star Wars movie: Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, which will be directed by Patty Jenkins and will be released in 2023.
