Billy Dee Williams officially returning as Lando Calrissian in ‘Episode IX’ and the new trilogy just got so damn smooth
It was rumored, and now it’s official. Billy Dee Williams is back as Lando in Episode IX, motherfuckers!
Kathleen Kennedy, Chief Czar of Lucasfilm, has come out and said that Lando may one day get his own Star Wars spin-off flick. As contradictory as it is for me to champion this idea, fuck it, I’m going to! I know, I know. Typically I bemoan the franchise for not striking out into new territory. But! It’s Lando! It’s Donald Glover!
What was once rumor is now objective fact! Donald Glover is going to be playing Lando in the upcoming Han Solo movie. I’m more than down with this casting, and the entire project in general. Star Wars fanboy? Check. Miller and Lord fanboy? Check. Donald Glover fanboy? Check! Clean sweep.
