Donald Glover Worried About His Role in Star Wars Spin-off After Directors Quit

Donald Glover felt like a child of divorce when directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller quit the Han Solo movie.

Ron Howard has taken over the project after The Lego Movie directors left, following a spat over creative differences with Disney and LucasFilm bosses, and Glover tells THR.com he was a little nervous about his role as Lando Calrissian in the movie when the new man took over.

"Ron is such a legend, and he knows exactly what the vision for what he is doing is... but they (Lord and Miller) hired us, so you sort of feel like, 'I know I'm not your first choice...'," Glover tells the outlet.

"You worry about that. To be honest, I don't know exactly what happened. I feel like I was the baby in the divorce, or the youngest child. The oldest child is like, 'We know what's happening, but we are keeping you out of it'. And I'm just like, 'Was that scene good? How did you feel?'"

Glover joins Alden Ehrenreich, who plays a young Han Solo, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, and Howard's actor brother Clint in the Star Wars spin-off, which is scheduled to hit cinemas next spring.
