The incomparable Billy Dee Williams is set to reprise his iconic role of Lando Calrissian in Star Wars: Episode IX.

Billy will be returning to the Star Wars franchise for the first time since Return of the Jedi, released in 1983.

Fans started buzzing when the 81-year-old actor backed out of attending an upcoming sci-fi and pop culture convention because of a conflict with his filming schedule.

Sources confirmed with The Hollywood Reporter that the OG Lando will be back for IX!

Donald Glover recently played a young Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

I will definitely be on time with a Colt 45 in hand for Billy Dee’s return!
