Lando is back in Star Wars Episode IX, report says

The man who originated the charismatic character almost four decades ago is reportedly headed back to that far away galaxy for Star Wars: Episode IX, the upcoming installment in the blockbuster franchise.

Fantha Tracks first reported the rumor of Williams' return for Episode IX in June.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, rumours began spreading that the 81-year-old would return to the franchise after he cancelled plans for a convention appearance, citing a clash with a a film project.

However, Williams has been active as Lando in other parts of the franchise, lending his voice to video games, such as "Star Wars: Battlefront", and animated series, including "Star Wars Rebels".

Williams first made his debut as the suave galactic gambler who went on to become an administrator of Cloud City in 1980's Empire Strikes Back. Last week, Keri Russell, a frequent Abrams collaborator also joined the cast in an undisclosed role. Star Wars: Episode IX will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Abrams, Bad Robot, and Lucasfilm.

Lando Calrissian has, of course, enjoyed something of a boost in popularity as of late, thanks to Donald Glover's performance as the character in Ron Howard's Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Star Wars: Episode IX will conclude the third trilogy of Star Wars movies that began with Star Wars: The Force Awakens followed up by Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
