Report: Billy Dee Williams to reprise role as Lando in Star Wars: Episode IX

“Hello, what have we here?”

Details surrounding the untitled Star Wars: Episode IX are scarce, but we now have a bit of clarity on Lando Calrissian’s character. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that actor Billy Dee Williams will reprise his role as Lando in Episode IX.

Production is set to begin this summer and, recently, Williams cancelled an appearance at an upcoming sci-fi and pop culture convention. So the stars seem to align for his return to the saga.

The role he’ll play in Episode IX is unknown, but it’ll be a nice homecoming for Lando. This is his first time in a Star Wars installment since Return of the Jedi in 1983.

Episode IX is expected to hit theaters Dec. 20, 2019 and will be directed by J.J. Abrams.
