    Seriously, Where is Billy Dee Williams? I sure hope he wasn't killed off like Sean Connery in Indy III. What's the story, J.J.?

    Still two movies to go. I'm sure the old smoothie will be back eventually.

    Who knows? Maybe they're saving the King of Smooth for the sequels? ;)

    Since when was Sean Connery killed off in Indy III? You mean Indy IV right?

    A) they're saving him from the sequels B) his role wasn't big enough to require him to be at the table read C) Andy Sirkis is playing a motion captured computer generated Lando.

    I think B is the most likely scenario but I think C would be funny too.

    "Scratched??" He knocked Han's satellite dish clean off! He missed a whole season of The "A" Team!

    The story could very simply be that not every single character needs to come back for the ST.
    Also, there are two more movies to go.

    I bet that Han will name-drop him once or twice ...

    When Han dies at the end at the funeral Lando will appear wearing Han's clothes, yet again.

    Han: Maybe Lando can help us.

    Leia: Lando....Lando....You mean your friend who screwed you over and sold us all out to the Empire to save his own ass? That Lando? No thanks.

    You mean like that kind of name dropping? :p

    Never know. He could have a bit part, but nothing significant like in Empire.

    I would love this.

    Leia: "Han, why don't you ask Lando?"
    Han: "He promised. Not a scratch. Knocks off the karking dish. I told you I was never talking to the guy again."
    Leia: "Han. It was thirty years ago. Let. It. Go."

    Han: "He choose to not pay for the damages."
    Leia: "Han. The Alliance fixed it for free."
    Han: "Not. The. Point."
    Leia: "Han!"

    Han: "It's the principle of the thing Leia. He promised!"
    Leia: "Like you promised me that anniversary dinner?"
    Han: "That was different. I...there was an emergency!"
    Leia: "Yeah, if you call getting Chewie a new copilot seat an 'emergency.' Go call Lando!"

    I feel like Lando is a major part of the SW family. I hope there's a good reason for saving him if he doesn't appear.

    Han: "His son was teething. He chewed up the seat. That's not my fault!"
    Leia: "It didn't have to be installed right then and there though!"
    Han: "Yes it did. I had to beat Lando... uh into fixing... uh, it..."
    Leia: "What was that about Lando?!?"
    Han: "Turns out he booked reservations there too..."
    Leia: "WHAT!?!"
    Han: "Yeah, clearly he wanted to spoil our dinner"
    Leia: "Or he wanted to appologize! Maybe even pay for those damages..."
    Han: "I'm not going to debate this in a committee."
    Leia: "HAN! For the thousandith time I'm not a committee!"

    I never expected him to have a large role anyway, but he could still easily show up in a cameo, possibly with more to do in the next film. Or just wait until then to show up at all. In any case, I'm not writing him out of the ST just yet. Still hoping to see one Chancellor Calrissian sooner or later.

    This is 35 years later. I'm pretty sure the characters have moved on to other things. When we first saw Lando he was the administrator of a gas mining facility. I'm sure he has his hands in something similarly non-relevant to the events of this story. Don't shoehorn him in just for the sake of it. If there is a story-related need for him to appear, then maybe episode 8 or 9 (assuming Billy lives that long)... But let's not go nuts.

    Lando went back to Bespin, became filthy rich, bought the entire planetary system and then renamed it as Lando System...
