Lando Calrissian won’t be in The Last Jedi

Although the casinos of Canto Bight might seem like the perfect place to find Billy Dee Williams’ Lando Calrissian, director Rian Johnson confirms that the character won’t appear in The Last Jedi.

“No, and I don’t want fans to get their hopes up. He’s not in the film and it was never really something that came up. I mean, I loved that character. It would have been fun to see him, but it’s just not something that ever really had a place in the story.”

Maybe Lando went fully respectable in his old age? In any case, we’re not finding out just yet. We’ll see a young Lando, played by Donald Glover, in next year’s Solo.
