THR reports that Billy Dee Williams is returning to Star Wars finally and will reprise his role of Lando Calrissian in JJ Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode IX. Rumors have been swirling for a few weeks now that he would be joining the production, which begins shooting later this summer.  They heated up in recent days when the actor dropped out of an upcoming sci-fi and pop culture convention citing a conflict with a movie schedule. Sources for THR then confirmed the news, which will be the first time he appeared in the role since 1983’s Return of the Jedi. This also comes on the heels of Donald Glover’s celebrated version of the character in this past summer’s Solo A Star Wars Story.

Mark Reilly and Kristian Harloff sit down to offer their thoughts on the news, sharing their excitement for the casting and speculate on how big Williams’ part may be.
