The spotlight has been on Lando lately, thanks to the promotion for Solo: A Star Wars Story and Donald Glover, who everyone loves. Even before that though, everyone has been wanted to see Lando appear in one of the newer Star Wars films, with many disappointed that he wasn't in The Force Awakens or The Last Jedi.

Many fans have been hoping that he would appear in Star Wars: Episode IX and if this Tweet means anything, that could be the case. Then again, it could just be mindless speculation but who knows?


According to a Tweet from MegaCon Orlando, original Lando actor Billy Dee Williams has been working out and looks better than ever. That's fairly impressive since Williams recently turned 81 so if you've always wanted to get in better shape, there is no age limit.

Of course, since the Tweet claims that he is in such great shape, many are thinking he might be preparing for Lando's return in Star Wars: Episode IX. While it is possible that he just wants to live a healthier life, it is worth noting that fans and people in Lucasfilm have teased wanting the character back.

Star Wars: Episode IX is slated for a December 20 release and will be directed by The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams.
