Billy Dee Williams’ Son On Lando Rumors For ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’

Earlier this week, a new rumor suggested that Billy Dee Williams will be reprising his role as Lando Calrissian for Star Wars: Episode IX. Now, Williams’ son, Cory Dee Williams, has commented on those rumors in a message posted on his official Twitter account.

Despite having played a key role in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, Billy Dee Williams’ Lando Calrissian was not among the original trilogy characters to appear in Lucasfilm’s new Star Wars films. While fans are eager to learn if the rumors of Calrissian’s long-awaited return for Episode IX are true, Cory Dee Williams informed fans that he is not to one to seek answers from, explaining that he as just as “clueless” as the rest of us.

Every ‘Star Wars’ Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

Star Wars was released in 1977 and has become one of the biggest film franchises in the history of cinema. Han Solo. Luke Skywalker. Princess Leia. Darth Vader. These characters have become synonymous with pop culture around the world.

Star Wars has transcended generations but when Revenge of the Sith was released in 2005, many fans assumed that this galaxy far far away had come to a close and we wouldn’t be seeing any new films. It wasn’t until 2012 that everything changed. On October 30, 2012, Disney announced a deal to purchase Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion. Since that purchase, Disney has brought Star Wars back to the main folds of pop culture with The Force Awakens and even Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. 

In honor of The Last Jedi being released in theaters, Heroic Hollywood is ranking every Star Wars film from worst to best.
