Lando Calrissian’s final scene in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker may have a twist to it. (Spoilers ahead, naturally.)
Entertainment Weekly has observed an interesting detail seen in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – The Visual Dictionary. While Lando Calrissian’s backstory is discussed in The Rise of Skywalker, there’s a key detail absent from the film: part of the reason why he’s chosen to retire is that a family tragedy happened earlier in his life. At some point, a child that he had was taken from him by acolytes of the Emperor that sought revenge, and he ultimately could not find his daughter again.
However, fate may have been kind to Lando Calrissian by the end of The Rise of Skywalker. It’s been established already that the First Order kidnapped children to brainwash them into becoming Stormtroopers, but some — like Finn and Jannah — deserted the oppressive regime in order to join the Resistance. Jannah has a conversation with Lando Calrissian at the very end of the film that’s interesting: when asked about her place of origin, she says that she does not know, but she seems to be willing to travel with him in order to find out.
The implications here are that Lando Calrissian may have been reunited with his long-lost daughter, that he thought he had lost in a tragedy, thanks to the efforts of the heroes of the Sequel Trilogy. While this has not yet been confirmed, the open-ended nature of the scene makes it seem likely that this plot thread will be explored in a future Star Wars installment. In any case, Lando Calrissian seems to be more interested in the conversation with Jannah once she states that she does not know where she’s from.
Directed by J. J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, Keri Russell, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Ian McDiarmid, and Billy Dee Williams. Carrie Fisher also appears as General Leia Organa through the use of previously unreleased footage shot for previous Star Wars films.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is now playing in theaters.
