Lando Will Not Appear in The Last Jedi


Sorry, folks: Lando Calrissian won't be appearing in The Last Jedi.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Billy Dee Williams won't be reprising the character in the film.

“No, and I don’t want fans to get their hopes up,” writer-director Rian Johnson tells EW. “He’s not in the film and it was never really something that came up. I mean, I loved that character. It would have been fun to see him, but it’s just not something that ever really had a place in the story.”

Williams' manager says he is open to returning to the franchise in the future, so keep your fingers crossed for an Episode IX appearance!
