'Star Wars': Billy Dee Williams Reprising Role as Lando Calrissian

Sounds a bit like a form of damage control after that recent fan backlash. All those uber-fans who complained about TLJ will now probably have an incentive to see Episode IX.

I’m all for Lando returning. But I’ll only be truly onboard of Mark Hamill comes back to reprise his role as Luke, even if he is a Force Ghost.

I've heard he's confirmed to be back. Especially since he's said numerous times that he hated having to grow a beard for the role but he's still sporting it. I wonder if Lando was brought back because of the flack Lucasfilm received for not featuring him in The Last Jedi.

Star Wars: Episode IX will begin filming August 1 at London’s Pinewood Studios, with Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant joining the main cast that also will include Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian as had been tipped.

Disney and Lucasfilm also said today that the role of Leia Organa will be played by Carrie Fisher, using previously unreleased footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Fisher, who starred in the original trilogy with Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford and appeared in 2017’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, died in December 2016.

“We desperately loved Carrie Fisher,” director J.J. Abrams said in announcing the news on StarWars.com. “Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us. We were never going to recast or use a CG character. With the support and blessing from her daughter, Billie [Lourd], we have found a way to honor Carrie’s legacy and role as Leia in Episode IX by using unseen footage we shot together in Episode VII.”

I'm very glad to hear that the classic characters of Luke, Leia, and Lando will all be returning. Lando's been confirmed for some time but Luke's role was more ambiguous. So glad that Carrie Fisher will still have some part in the film especially with the blessing of her family. I know they talked about how much they wanted to have her in the new film in some shape or form and I'm glad that this will be possible.

^I agree. I think it's a good and respectful solution for bringing her back.
