While the fan reaction has been overwhelmingly positive, Glover revealed that a lot of the pressure surrounding the role is coming from his own mother -- who is a huge fan of Billie Dee Williams, the actor who first played Lando in the original trilogy.
"I told my dad [about getting cast] immediately, and my mom was in the background going, 'Don't mess it up!'" he shared.
The untitled Star Wars project, which follows the adventures of a young Han Solo (to be played by Alden Ehrenreich), will be helmed by The Lego Movie's Phil Lord and Chris Miller and is set to hit theaters in 2018. Check out the video to hear more about Glover's casting.
