Looks like the original Lando Calrissian  is returning to Episode IX

Quote
Billy Dee Williams is returning to a galaxy far, far away.

The actor, who famously played the galactic gambler Lando Calrissian, will reprise the role for Star Wars: Episode IX, the next Star Wars installment from Lucasfilm.

Chatter about Williams joining the production, which is set to begin later this summer, increased in recent days when the actor bowed out of an upcoming sci-fi and pop culture convention citing a conflict with a movie schedule. Sources confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that Williams will indeed be returning to the Star Wars film franchise for the first time since 1983ís Return of the Jedi. The Lando Calrissian character made his suave debut in 1980's Empire Strikes Back.

I wish they'd also bring back Denis Lawson as Wedge Antilles.  Especially if he says look at the size of that thing / there's nary an animal alive that can outrun a greased Corellian.

Hopefully his health will hold up for it. I hear he isn't a well man.

The nearer we get to Episode IX, the more exciting--at least for me--it becomes, as it is the culmination of over 40 years of filmmaking.

Of course, the trilogy that follows also is the same, as it appears to be a reset, with the physical impossibility of going both forward and backward in time, at the same time. Coming sometime after 2019 and to be done by the show runners hired from Game of Thrones, the thought is that the next trilogy, because of who is doing it, will be set in the days of the Old Republic.

And we will see what we will see.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
