Lando calrissian Billy Dee Williams

When it comes to the original cast of the Star Wars trilogy, most of them give up information pretty easily. Be it Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford or Anthony Daniels, each has said or done something in the past year suggesting they’re going to return to the Star Wars universe, even though nothing is official. Now add Billy Dee Williams to the list.

Williams recently appeared at Rhode Island Comic-Con and mentioned he was about to do a new project for Netflix. He then said it was called “Rebels,” but couldn’t talk about it. The upcoming animated series Star Wars: Rebels isn’t going to be on Netflix, so maybe he misspoke. Or maybe he’s actually doing a show on Netflix and got the title wrong. Or maybe he’s joining Star Wars: Rebels. Either way, it’s a fun little mystery. Dig deeper below. Read More »
