The question had been asked since the announcement of new Star Wars movies: Will we see Billy Dee Williams back as Lando Calrissian?
The rumors ran rampant for the last few months, but Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Lando will finally return to the big screen in Episode IX. While Williams had reprised the role in several video games and animated productions, he did not appear in the last two proper Star Wars movies. This will mark the first time since 1983’s Return Of The Jedi that he will appear as Lando in a Star Wars film.
While the exact part the gambler turned politician will play has yet to be revealed. However, there were rumors which we mentioned in a recent episode of Geekville Radio (at approximately 12:45), that Lando may replace the role Leia would have played in Episode IX.
The Ninth Episode of The Star Wars Saga will be released on December 20th 2019, and will be directed by JJ Abrams.
