The actor will reprise his role as the intergalactic gambler and former smuggler Lando in Star Wars Episode 9, marking his first big screen return to the role since 1983's Return of the Jedi. The character was more recently played by Donald Glover in this year's Solo: A Star Wars Story.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed the galaxy's smoothest swindler will be returning for Star Wars: Episode IX as Billy Dee Williams is confirmed to reprise his role in the final installment of the sequel trilogy.

It's about time! Billy Dee Williams is poised to break out the capes as Lando Calrissian once again. Those rumors only gained speed when Williams bowed out of an upcoming sci-fi and pop culture convention later this summer, citing a "conflict with a movie schedule". Williams has also provided his voice to the role in various cartoon series and video games in recent years. They will join Star Wars regulars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver.
