Lando Calrissian, dashing rogue and friend to Han Solo (and who eventually lost the Millenium Falcon to Solo in a card game), returns in a new STAR WARS: REBELS episode tonight on Disney XD — titled: “Idiot’s Array”. When Zeb loses Chopper in a game of cards to Calrissian, the crew of the Ghost agrees to help the smooth-talking scoundrel make a dangerous cargo run in trade for their astromech. But when Lando plots a risky scheme to trade Hera for secret cargo, the crew gets far more than it bargained for. Here now is a behind-the-scenes video with actor Billy Dee Williams recording his Calrissian character for the episode!
Billy Dee Williams returns as Lando Calrissian in an all-new STAR WARS: REBELS episode airing at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT Monday, January 19h on Disney XD.
Set between the STAR WARS movies: REVENGE OF THE SITH and A NEW HOPE — the REBELS story unfolds during a dark time when the evil Galactic Empire is tightening its grip of power on the galaxy. The motley but clever crew of the starship Ghost — cowboy Jedi Kanan, ace pilot Hera, street-smart teenager Ezra, the “muscle” Zeb, warrior firebrand Sabine, and cantankerous old astromech droid Chopper — are among a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, they face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.
