Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to be quite the Rebel family reunion – Luke, Han, Leia, Chewie and the whole gang are returning. Well, almost the whole gang. Sadly, super cool, cape-sporting space pimp, Lando Calrissian will not be in the movie, but could he show up in a future Star Wars movie? Or did Lando die on his way back to Bespin?
Well, Billy Dee Williams, spoke recently about the possibility of his character appearing in future Star Wars sequels, and he sounds hopeful…
“Yeah, people were pretty upset about it. But I uh, I may very well…I have a feeling I’m going to show up. There’s nothing I can really discuss about it at this stage.
People think of me as the original cast, but I didn’t come in until the second movie. I did Empire and then I did Return of the Jedi, but I came in after everyone else was introduced. So I think they’re probably proceeding in that way. I can’t imagine them not bringing Lando back.”
I can’t imagine it either.
“This guy is getting a spin-off movie? This guy?“
