Star Wars: Lawrence Kasdan, who most recently co-wrote Star Wars: The Force Awakens with J.J. Abrams, says, "Right now, there’s no Lando Calrissian [the character played by Billy Dee Williams] in this movie. But Lando I don’t think is finished in any way, shape, or form." Kasdan, who also co-wrote The Empire Strikes Back -- he's pictured above with director Irvin Kershner, producer Gary Kurtz, and George Lucas -- and Return of the Jedi, gave no other hints about the character's possible return.

As the world prepares to completely lose its mind with the release of the new Star Wars film, it is obviously time to try to stir the pot as much as possible. That in mind, the previous films from the franchise are going to be released on April 10th in digital edition, and with some new bonuses to help sucker you in to the purchase.
They also come with the legacy bonus content, and put together, these are impressive releases.

With the most vivid, fully imagined universe in all of science fiction, Star Wars is one of the most beloved, storied franchises in cinematic history. This is thanks in no small part to a wildly original cast of characters, at once instantly understandable and delightfully alien.
The range of actors found in the series is nothing but impressive. You can find dozens of actors who got their start in the films, working right alongside established stars like Sir Alec Guinness, Peter Cushing (and later Ewan McGregor and Liam Neeson). Some of your favourites you may not even recognise out of character, but, even if they performed under masks and make-up, they were essential to bringing Star Wars to life.
Of course, when talking about a franchise with such incredible longevity, you’re bound to lose a few friends along the way. That’s certainly the case with Star Wars, »

One of the best lines from the original Star Wars trilogy was Han Solo's totally boss response to Princess Leia's "I love you" in The Empire Strikes Back. The original scene had Harrison Ford saying "I love you too," but as I'm sure most of you know, the actor and director Irvin Kershner didn't like it, so Ford changed the line to "I know," forever cementing Han Solo as one of the coolest cool-guy characters »
