Billy Dee Williams

Last month I wrote about a popular rumor of Billy Dee Williams returning to “Star Wars: Episode IX”. Well it has been confirmed by the Hollywood Reporter that he will be returning to his original role as Lando Calrissian. This is exciting!

Rumors went swirling about Williams when he bowed out of an upcoming sci-fi and pop culture convention regarding a conflict with a movie schedule. That’s when sources confirmed that the galactic gambler would indeed be returning to a galaxy far, far away- for the first time since 1983 in Return if the Jedi. The Lando Calrissian character made his suave debut in 1980’s Empire Strikes Back.

Episode IX is being directed by J.J. Abrams and will reunite Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver, among others. Keri Russell is one of the new additions to the cast. The film is set to open Dec. 20, 2019.
