Billy Dee Williams took to Twitter to post a throwback photo with the original Star Wars cast.
Now that the Skywalker Star Wars saga has come to an end, Billy Dee Williams, who plays Lando Calrissian, seems to have felt nostalgic and posted a photo with the original cast members. In the photo, we see Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Billy Dee Williams himself. The photo, which is in black and white, is the perfect vintage treat for fans of the original Star Wars films.

There isn’t any indication as to when this photo was taken, but it’s safe to say it happened after Billy Dee Williams’ Lando made his first appearance in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. Since then, each of the core original Star Wars cast members reprised their roles in the sequel trilogy, though Billy Dee Williams only reprised his role as Lando in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Many fans were disappointed that Billy Dee Williams only got to reprise his role in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker while the other original characters appeared in (almost) all of the sequel trilogy films. In the latest Star Wars film, Billy Dee Williams was essentially a glorified cameo whilst Han, Luke, and Leia all got large, meaty roles in the previous sequel trilogy films. On the other hand, now that the Skywalker saga has come to an end, it’s great that the filmmakers were able to give Billy Dee Williams the send-off he deserved.

New ‘Titans’ Photos Show Off Aqualad And The Original Team
DC Universe has released eight brand new images from the upcoming fourth episode of the second season of Titans entitled, "Aqualad".
"Aqualad" will explore the dynamic among Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Donna Troy/Wonder Girl (Conor Leslie), Hank Hall/Hawk (Alan Ritchson), Dawn Granger/Dove (Minka Kelly) and Garth/Aqualad (Drew Van Acker) and how four years prior, their tight-knit family dynamic developed only to have their personal feelings bleed more into their work only to be exacerbated by the arrival of a new villain.
These new images give fans a new look at Drew Van Acker as Aqualad as well as a couple of new looks at the original team united together for action. In particular, we get our best look at how the Aqualad suit translates onscreen in live-action form.

In Season 2, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business. And as this family of old and new Titans – including Conner Kent and Rose Wilson – learn to co-exist, the arrival of Deathstroke brings to light the sins of the old Titans which threaten to tear this new Titans family apart once more.
The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Robin/Nightwing, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Ryan Potter as Beast Boy. Newcomers for its sophomore outing include Joshua Orpin and Esai Morales playing Superboy and Deathstroke, respectively, while Chella Man and Chelsea Zhang have also joined the cast as Deathstroke’s children Jericho and Ravager.
