The Sun newspaper in the UK is reporting that Billy Dee Williams will be having a “fun cameo” in Episode VIII.
Everyone is always down for more Lando, so this is good news. Fans have been displeased that he is not going to be in The Force Awakens so it’s nice to think that we will see him back as that lovable scoundrel in Ep. 8.
So far all we know for sure about Episode VIII is that it is being directed by Rian Johnson and will come out in 2017. Rumors have it that it will be focused on the new characters rather than the original cast as well.
