Billy Dee Williams will return as Lando for Star Wars: Episode IX


There had been rumours of Billy Dee Williams returning as Lando Calrissian since The Force Awakens was announced. Then he recently cancelled an appearance at a movie convention because of a scheduling conflict.

Turns out that is because he is joining the cast of Star Wars: Episode IX. Was this always the plan? Who the hell knows. It seems that they are just writing each episode with little or no regards to what happened in the previous ones. There had been reports that Episode IX was going to focus on Leia, but as Carrie Fisher sadly passed away and the fact that they killed off Luke in The Last Jedi means they may have got Billy Dee Williams to be the new head of the Resistance.

J.J. Abrams is directing Episode 9 and Keri Russell recently joined the cast.

Will Lando be related to one of the new characters? Will he have Force powers? Will there be any tie-in to what we saw with Donald Glover’s Lando from Solo: A Star Wars Story? Will they do something really silly such as having Lando covered in something which de-ages him to Donald Glover? Has he just been brought back so they have another old character they can kill off?

All these questions and more may or may not be answered when the film comes out in December 2019.

What are your thoughts about Episode 9?

We also talked about The Last Jedi in After the Ending and talked about what we felt would happen in Episode 9. You can listen to that below.
