Watch Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian Host 'Galactic Summit For All Black Humans' on 'SNL'
Ahead of the May 25 release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, Donald Glover reprised his role as the galaxy’s ultimate ladies’ man Lando Calrissian to host a “galactic summit for all black humans” on Saturday Night Live.
Glover, who served as SNL‘s host on May 5, gave Star Wars fans a taste of his take on the young version Calrissian in a hilarious sketch about racial diversity — or lack thereof — in space.
Sporting a black cape, yellow shirt, and gripping a mysterious purple cup flowing with steam, the slick-looking Calrissian steps to the podium at a beachfront hotel on the planet Naboo to address race in space.
“This started with one question: Where the hell are all the black people in space? For a while I thought it was me, the only one, but now I see before me all the black humans in the galaxy,” Calrissian says to a disappointing crowd of three. “We were expecting a thousand guests. I held out hope that there was a black human planet somewhere, but I guess it’s just us.”
After brief appearances by Saw Gerrera (played by Kenan Thompson), who pays tribute to Mace Windu, Calrissian finishes out the summit by singing a loungy song called “Making Love in Space” alongside a blue monster.
