The Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker novelization suggests that Jannah is not actually the daughter of Lando despite fan speculation.
Billy Dee Williams finally returned as Lando Calrissian in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. In the film’s visual dictionary, it was revealed that Lando actaully had a daughter who was taken by the First Order in the time before The Force Awakens. During the celebration scene at the end of The Rise of Skywalker, Lando has a moment with Jannah, which has led to many believing that she is his daughter.
Like many Star Wars films, more details were revealed in The Rise of Skywalker novelization by Rae Carson. Specifically, there’s a moment in the book that addresses the fan theory on whether or not Jannah is actually the long-lost daughter of Lando:
“Lando and the Lady Luck would help these special kids. Find their families, if that’s what they wanted. Help them discover their new place in the galaxy. Heck, maybe he’d find his daughter. Probably not; he knew the odds. But that would be a pretty good way to spend his twilight years, right? If the kids were amenable, anyway.”
