Yes, that’s right – your eyes are not deceiving you – Lando Calrissian is indeed returning to the Star Wars universe! Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the smoothest of all characters from that galaxy far, far away will be making an appearance on an upcoming episode of Star Wars Rebels.
Lando will be in the January 19th episode, “Idiot’s Array,” and he’ll be appearing as a younger version of himself, since Rebels is set in a period prior to his first appearance in The Empire Strikes Back. Best of all? Lando will be voiced by the legendary Billy Dee Williams!
You can see a clip of the episode, plus behind-the-scenes footage, in the video below:
Star Wars Rebels airs on DisneyXD Monday nights at 9/8c.
