Billy Dee Williams to Return as Lando Calrissian in ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’

Lando Calrissian

Rumors have been swirling about Williams' return to the role for some time, but have only just been confirmed today.

Now the character is reportedly set to return in next year's Star Wars Episode IX, played by Billy Dee Williams, the actor who originally appeared as Lando when the character made his first outing in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980).

Now, the big question remains as to whether Lando Calrissian.is firmly with the forces of good or whether he's in line to be a First Order stooge.

Given the tragic death of Carrie Fisher after The Last Jedi, and the fact that Episode IX was supposed to focus on her character General Leia Organa, we would be entirely without original trilogy characters if Lando didn't return. The outlet was able to confirm that the conflict was indeed to film the yet-untitled "Star Wars" film. Star Wars: Episode IX will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Abrams, Bad Robot, and Lucasfilm. He'll join new cast members Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver and Kelly Marie Tran.
