How Did Donald Glover Celebrate Landing the Role of Lando? The way most of us would! In an interview with The Star Wars Show, Glover shared the inside-scoop that shows he’s the PERFECT actor to play the original owner of the Millennium Falcon. Glover said, "The day I found out I got (the part), I remember... I bought like, a whole pizza, and went home and watched Empire Strikes Back.” A Green Muppet is Coming to Episode IX, and His Name Isn’t Kermit The Daily News claims to have inside information on Yoda and Episode IX. The source said, “The success of the scenes featuring Yoda in ‘The Last Jedi’ were huge, Yoda will again appear as a ghost as he acknowledges Rey's success and growth as a Jedi. The scenes are due to be put together later this year.” Mark Hamill Loves Broom Boy! Broom Boy is a character - and film ending - that has been controversial to say the least. But it seems that Luke Skywalker approved of the ending to The Last Jedi. Hamill is quoted on saying the following: “What I love particularly was - and they didn’t have to do this because the movie’s over - all of a sudden you cut to the stable and there’s that little boy, he puts out his hand and the broom comes to him. It’s so subtle, the first time I saw it I thought he just took it, but if you look he puts his hand out and it moves over for him, implying that yeah, she’s [Rey’s] the last Jedi... until the next Jedi. It’ll go on forever, believe me. Long after both of us are gone they’ll be making these films from here into eternity.” Today in Star Wars History: On this date in 1978, John Williams conducted "The Sounds of Space" concert in George Lucas' home in California.
