Is Billy Dee Williams Returning For Star Wars: Episode IX?

Posted by Dustin on June 18, 2018 at 09:18 AM CST

Team Fantha Tracks have confirmed a rumor through multiple sources that Billy Dee Williams is returning as Lando Calrissian in Star Wars Episode IX.

Billy Dee Williams is back for Episode IX as Lando Calrissian.

We were asked by our original source to verify this with another independent source before we ran with it. We did that, confirming that this is indeed correct (and before anyone asks, we’re not going to name our sources because that’s not how this works). Filming on Episode IX starts next month, so expect to see official confirmation of this exciting casting very soon.

Billy Dee is 81 years old now, and would be the final appearance of one of the so called original cast members. Filming is expected to begin within weeks. Hopefully we will get some official word on this, and possibly more information during the Summer's convention season.
