Star Wars fans are eagerly awaiting the return of Lando Calrissian to the screen in the still untitled Episode IX later this year. Now the fan-favorite actor behind the iconic role, Billy Dee Williams will be joining the lineup of stars at this year’s Star Wars Celebration in Chicago. Williams wasn’t the only new name added to the list of appearances at the official fan convention though.
Character actor Alan Tudyk was also announced to appear. Tudyk provided the voice for the wise-cracking droid sidekick K-2SO in the recent spin-off film Rogue One. Fans of the animated series Star Wars Rebels will be excited to hear that the stars of the show, Taylor Gray and Freddie Prinze Jr., will both be on hand for the festivities as well.
In addition to these headlining appearances, Star Wars Celebration Chicago will feature other notable talents from the long history of films. Recently announced were additions like Julian Glover who portrayed General Veers and Stormtrooper actor Anthony Forrest.
Nothing official has been announced, but we are hoping that a title for the newest installment in the Star Wars film series Episode IX, and possibly a trailer, will be released during the celebration. Be sure to check back as we will bring those details to you when they are released. The Star Wars Celebration Chicago takes place from April 11 to 15, 2019 at McCormick Place.
