Hollywood Reporter (as well as several other entertainment websites) has just released an article which officially confirms that Billy Dee Williams will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian in Episode IX. Rumors were spreading a few days ago already, when Billy Dee had to cancel a convention appearence due to a scheduling conflict. Now that it is official, what do you want Lando to do in IX? Do you think he will have a somewhat larger role? Are you happy and excited a beloved Original Trilogy character finally gets an appearance in the Sequel Trilogy? This is something fans have been asking for since The Force Awakens.
The Saskatchewan Entertainment Expo made the most curious announcement on their Facebook page. Billy Dee Williams was supposed to be a guest this year. But his appearance has been canceled due to a “film schedule conflict”. Hmmmm. What can that possibly mean?
And then discuss whether or not you’re excited for Lando in Episode IX! Will he kamikaze the Falcon with Nien Nunb and Chewbacca as his co-pilots and 3PO and R2 in the back into Starkiller Base 2.0 or will he do what any sensible person would do, and put Kylo Ren across his knee for being a very naughty boy and killing Han for the entire duration of the movie?
