As first reported here on Fantha Tracks, Billy Dee Williams is returning to the Star Wars silver screen as Lando Calrissian.
As we reported on 18th June:
Billy Dee Williams is back for Episode IX as Lando Calrissian.
We were asked by our original source to verify this with another independent source before we ran with it. We did that, confirming that this is indeed correct (and before anyone asks, we’re not going to name our sources because that’s not how this works). Filming on Episode IX starts next month, so expect to see official confirmation of this exciting casting very soon.
So, there’s something to take away for Father’s Day. Following on from his younger version appearing in Solo: A Star Wars Story we can now look forward to the original Lando returning to the role in just 550 days time.
Now official confirmation has come courtesy of Lucasfilm in their Episode IX cast announcement. For more Star Wars news from the production of Episode IX and beyond keep your eyes here on Fantha Tracks as we bring you the latest Star Wars News In A Single File!
