Whereas Star Wars followers are trying ahead to the Ahsoka TV present hitting Disney+ later this month, there are lots of upcoming Star Wars films and TV deliberate for the months and years forward. A few of them, like The Acolyte, will introduce us to model new characters, whereas different initiatives will see the return of beforehand established characters. And now it seems like one of many OG Star Wars heroes could also be on his method again as Billy Dee Williams, the unique Lando Calrissian, is teasing one thing Star Wars associated. So his Lando could also be one in all character we’ll see once more.
Billy Dee Williams is exceedingly obscure in his announcement tweet, saying merely that “one thing” is coming. He’s concerned in some kind of mission that he calls a “dream come true,” which definitely makes it sound like an enormous deal. And whereas the actor doesn’t give us many indications of what he’s speaking about, he does finish the put up by saying “Might the Power be with you” seemingly confirming that no matter that is, it’s Star Wars associated. Learn his full put up under.
The obvious connection to attract right here is that Billy Dee Williams has closed a deal to return to the galaxy far, far-off as Lando Calrissian in some capability. He beforehand reprised the function from the unique trilogy in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Contemplating that we lately realized that the beforehand introduced Lando collection for Disney+,which had seemingly died was again on (with Donald Glover set to not solely star however write) it’s arduous to not consider there’s a connection.
Simply because we anticipate Donald Glover’s youthful model of Lando to be the principle focus of any Disney+ collection doesn’t imply there isn’t a spot for Billy Dee Williams. It could be straightforward sufficient to make use of the older Lando as a framing gadget, organising the episodes of the present as flashbacks. Or maybe we may get a narrative set in two totally different time durations that appears Lando coping with a associated journey as a younger and older man.
In fact, simply due to the timing, it doesn’t imply Billy Dee Williams will probably be again within the new collection. Disney has but to verify the information relating to the brand new Lando collection in any respect, and it appears fairly early to be signing on the forged for the mission, particularly contemplating there’s a WGA strike taking place proper now, and so no person goes to really be writing any episodes in the interim.
Maybe the actor will probably be bringing Lando to life in another Star Wars mission. Or it could possibly be unrelated to Lando Calrissian straight. Perhaps Billy Dee Williams goes to relate a Star Wars documentary. The precise potentialities are almost limitless. Primarily based on Williams’ put up, it appears like we’ll be listening to about what’s happening earlier than too lengthy.
