A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away everyone’s favorite scoundrel Lando Calrissian helped the Rebels long before he tried to help Han and Leia.
Billy Dee Williams is returning to the iconic character he created in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back during the ‘Idiot’s Array’ episode of Disney XD’s Star Wars Rebels.
This confirms the rumor that had been circulating that Williams was appearing in a Rebels episode.
The Rebels version of Lando is much younger and less experience than the character fans saw in The Empire Strikes Back.
In the Star Wars Rebels episode, Zeb loses Chopper to Calrissian during a game of cards and the crew of the Ghost agrees to make a dangerous run to help get the droid back.
