Everybody who has wondered whether Billy Dee Williams will ever return to Star Wars, wonder no more: he's going to be in Star Wars Rebels, the surprisingly good prequel cartoon on some Disney cable channel. In the episode, taking place between Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars* Lando ends up winning the heroes' irascible droid Chopper in a card game (Sabacc, for the nerds). Hijinks, we assume, ensue.
I had heard from sources at the Ranch that Billy Dee was coming back to Star Wars and had speculated (privately) that it was a cameo in The Force Awakens - but I guess it was Rebels all along! Or maybe he did a Rebels voice while getting back into character for a small appearance in The Force Awakens? The Mystery Box keeps opening, so we could know soon.
If you're a cable subscriber you can watch the episode now right here. It will be on TV next week.
