Well it seems like the smoke did in fact come from a fire. As I reported here last week there have been tons of rumors that Billy Dee Williams would be returning to reprise his role as Lando Calrissian. Hollywood Reporter is now adding their sources to the story saying that Billy Dee is in fact returning to dawn the capes once again.
If there was a time to bring more Lando to the screen now is the time. After the character stole the spotlight in Solo: A Star Wars Story people are wanting more Calrissian. As I stated last week I am all for Billy Dee returning to this role to help wrap up the saga but I want one thing and one thing only out of this return. That is for Lando and Maz to have at least one scene together. I know I can’t be the only one who wishes the master code breaker in The Last Jedi could have been Lando instead of a new character all together.
Be sure to check back here to see if we get any official word any time soon from Lucasfilm or if we have to hang on for an official announcement at Celebration.
