Lando Calrissian Returns for Star Wars Episode VII

There’s been so much Star Wars news floating around lately even I’m starting to get tired of it, but here’s one detail I can’t go without passing along. We’ve long heard that the major players in the original trilogy would be appearing in the most recent slew of films, but here’s one name that I hadn’t really expected: Lando Calrissian. He’s probably the most loved of all the side characters, but I’m still a little surprised to hear his inclusion confirmed so early on in production.

According to Moviehole, though, that his name has popped up alongside Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia in the 50 page treatment written by Micheal Arndt. I’ll have to admit that I’m still a little suspicious about them including so many of the older characters. Only Harrison Ford has really aged well, both as an acotr and physically. To be frank, Mark Hamill looks kind of like the younger version of himself in bad aging makeup.

I’d prefer to see them focus on creating new, strong characters to inhabit the universe. But, bringing Lando back seems like a really good idea to me. He’s one of the more interesting characters of the Star Wars universe, and more screen time would allow him to be fleshed out more. Are any Star Wars fans out there to see Billy Dee Williams back in the saddle?
