One of the most anticipated things about Star Wars: Episode IX currently is the return of Billy Dee Williams’ Lando Calrissian to the franchise, making his first appearance in the sequel trilogy.
Yesterday, Billy Dee Williams shared on Twitter a video of him working out and getting in shape with some boxing moves:
Given the timing of Williams’ tweet and his workouts, it seems that he’s getting in shape for Star Wars: Episode IX, which is currently filming. It’s of course always good to be working out and getting in shape regardless of the cause, but we know that other stars of the sequel trilogy have had workout regimens to get them in shape for filming, so given that context it seems likely that Billy Dee is preparing for his role in the film.
It will be great to see Williams return to the big screen as Lando Calrissian one last time, joining in with the events of the sequel trilogy and likely aiding General Leia Organa’s Resistance in a crucial manner. We don’t have any details about Calrissian’s role in the film, but that’s not necessarily the important part right now: the important thing right now is that Lando Calrissian is back!
