The original Lando Calrissian will return in Star Wars Episode IX

BREAKING Billy Dee Williams Returning as Lando for Star Wars Episode IX

The man who originated the charismatic character almost four decades ago is reportedly headed back to that far away galaxy for Star Wars: Episode IX, the upcoming installment in the blockbuster franchise. A younger Lando was played by Donald Glover in Solo: A Star Wars story. Billy Dee Williams, who originated the role in Empire Strikes Back, is set to don the cape as Lando in the forthcoming installment of the Disney/Lucasfilm franchise. Williams reportedly cancelled a scheduled attendance at an upcoming sci-fi and pop culture convention due to scheduling conflicts with filming on Star Wars: Episode IX, which is set to begin at the end of this month.

If the report is true, then Episode IX - directed and written by J.J. Abrams and slated for a December 2019 release - is getting better all the time.

Star Wars: Episode IX will conclude the third trilogy of Star Wars movies that began with Star Wars: The Force Awakens followed up by Star Wars: The Last Jedi.


After playing Lando in 1983's Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, Williams also voiced the character for several Star Wars video games and the animated TV series Star Wars: Rebels.

All bets are off: Billy Dee Williams is returning to Star Wars.

Williams will be joining fellow new cast addition Keri Russell (M:I-3, The Americans), as well as Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac and John Boyega for J.J. Abrams' new sequel closer.
