Lando Calrissian Will Return For STAR WARS: EPISODE IX

Lando Calrissian Will Return For STAR WARS: EPISODE IX”

Be that as it may, we're now hearing that after months of rumors and speculation, Billy Dee Williams is confirmed to be returning as Lando Calrissian for Star Wars: Episode IX. It seems that famed smuggler, gambler, Cloud City administrator and original Millennium Falcon owner Captain Lando Calrissian is returning to the big screen. Sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter that Williams will indeed be returning to the Star Wars big screen for the first time since 1983s Return of the Jedi.

Williams apparently backed out of attending a sci-fi/pop culture convention due to a filming conflict, igniting rumors that he's going to be part of the next Star Wars installment.

Donald Glover did a fantastic interpretation of Billy Dee Williams, who gave the role such a unique swagger back in the day, which is why it makes us so very happy to announce that Williams will be returning to the role for the now untitled Episode IX. But now Williams will don Lando's fabulous cape again to reprise the role in Episode 9.

Donald Glover recently took on the younger version of the role in the latest franchise spin-off Solo: A Star Wars Story. His last feature film appearance as Lando was three years later in Return of the Jedi, but Williams has maintained a close connection with the character, voicing Lando in various Star Wars video games and parody shorts as well as in the animated Star Wars Rebels series.
