    So, Lando probably lost the Ghost to Hera and the Falcon to Han. That'd be funny. The man needs to stop betting with his ships.

    How cool would it be if Lando and Admiral Screed (he needs to be in this show) teamed up to run a con on Lothal? That would be the greatest thing ever.

    Hot ****ing damn.

    Now as long as they don't change his character from what we saw in the OT.

    Sounds good that his character will be in it. However I wonder how a 20 something year old Lando will sound now that Billy Dee is nearly 80.

    Like he did in The Lego Movie.

    I'm sure Ezra will be with him, popping that slingshot and singing "EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!"

    She'll give him the Falcon. And teach both him and Han how to fix it.

    And she'll teach Han how to play a moral game of sabacc so that he really does win the Falcon "fair and square."

    Hmm, we might've contradicted her character a little. Dave wanted her to dislike smugglers, according to Shadow of Malevolence, so I'm sure she'll try to sway Han away from any shady smuggler stuff like the Kessel Run.

    We can say that Ahsoka was a one-time baron administrator on Cloud City but she gave the job to Lando.

    It's all really Ahsoka's universe. The other characters just live in it.

    Oh, did I just crash the annual meeting of Ahsokaholics Anonymous? [face_party]
    I'm pretty indifferent to Ahsoka, but after reading through this thread, I really hope she will appear in Rebels. As the protagonist. With Lando as the only other character.

    At this point I'm not sure Ezra is going to be much better and honestly it feels like the pandering with OT characters is starting much earlier than I expected getting back to the subject of Mr. Billy Dee Williams in Rebels. Oh well its Lando so Rebels won't be lacking zazz.

    Good news, everyone!

    It's pretty cool that they managed to get him aboard.

    Called it.

    Assuming Filoni's Togruta friend never shows up in Rebels, Ezra jokes will probably replace Ahsoka jokes here.

    As far as pandering to OT characters, it depends. Lando isn't a Jedi, he was not working undercover during the OT the way Han was, so he could make an appearance or several without it being shoehorned. I don't know where Lothal appears in any essential atlas but it could be near Bespin. The Ghost crew could have something to do with Tibanna gas production. Just a vague idea there, not fleshed out.

    If the crew ran into Obi-Wan, Luke, or Yoda it would be pretty awful due to Kanan and Ezra's Force sensitivity. If they ran into Han, I'd have to wonder why they were in the smuggling business, but I could deal with it because the Ghost crew is hiding illicit activity from the Imperials themselves. And their running into Leia, Vader or the Emperor would be ridiculous.

    But I can see Lando showing up in a way that makes sense.

    I want to see who Lando cons Cloud City off of. And the actual deal going down.

    Like Bane would fall for something like that. And like he wouldn't just blow Lando's head off. :)

    Clearly Lando learned everything about gambling and being suave from Hondo.
