Billy Dee is Back, Will Reprise Role as Lando Calrissian in Next Star Wars Film

The other big announcement last night, aside from the Supreme Court news, came from a galaxy far, far away – The Hollywood Reporter broke the news Monday that Billy Dee Williams will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian for Star Wars Episode IX, the third installment in the latest trilogy epic. Williams’ character first appeared in 1980 in the second Star Wars film, “The Empire Strikes Back,” and then again in 1983’s “Return of the Jedi.”

While it is unclear where or how Lando will fit into the storyline from where events left off after Episode VIII, which also included storylines for Mark Hammill as Luke Skywalker and Carrie Fischer as General Leia Organa, Star Wars fans will be overjoyed, having clamored for Williams to return as the smooth gambler.

Donald Glover most recently portrayed Lando in this summer’s “Solo: A Star Wars Story” to much critical acclaim.

J.J. Abrams, a prominent Democrat contributor, is directing the last installment in Lucasfilm/Disney’s current Skywalker trilogy due for release on December 20, 2019.
