Lando Calrissian is a fictional male corellian who works for Rebel Alliance in the Star Wars franchise. He has been portrayed on screen by Billy Dee Williams. Lando Calrissian, from his first appearance in the `Star Wars V - The Empire Strikes Back` to his (current last as of June 2013) last in Star Wars VI - Return of the Jedi.

Lando Calrissian is seen as one of the most important characters of the original trilogy. He is as yet not been confirmed as appearing in the new sequels, the first being Star Wars - The Force Awakens when it comes out in 2015. There are rumours that he could appear in Episodes VIII and IX when they come out in the coming years but there`s been no sign of him yet, rumoured that Billy Dee Williams didn`t want to appear again.

There had been a rumour that Finn, one of the new characters in the movie is rumoured to be the son of Lando Calrissian but we`ll have to wait till we see the film to see if this is the truth.

Lando Calrissian

The Empire Strikes Back

Lando first appears as the Administrator of Cloud City, Bespin and is an old time friend of Han Solo. Han won the Millenium Falcon off Lando in a game of Sabacc which is not explained in the movies, just the expanded universe,

Lando invites them (Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2-D2) to dinner but it is a trap as Darth Vader is waiting for them. Vader had arrived earlier on the planet. Vader tells Lando that all he`s interested in is Luke Skywalker and its really a trap for him.

Darth Vader planned to freeze Han Solo in frozen Carbonite and send him to Jabba, the Hutt. Vader agreed to leaving Leia, the droids and Chewbacca with Lando but Vader changes his mind at the last moment and plans to take the Princess with him. Calrissian orders the evacuation of he Cloud City to use as a cover to free Han Solo`s friends from the Empire.

Lando with the assistance of the Cloud City security frees Princess Leia, Chewbacca and the droids and they escape using the Millenium Falcon picking up Luke on the way.

Return of the Jedi

Lando has managed to get a job as one of Jabba the Hutts` guards where he helps or at least tries to help rescue Han. During the fracas on the sail boats over the Sarlacc Pit, Lando falls into the pit and has to be rescued by Han Solo and Chewbacca.

At the Rebel base, Lando with the help of Nien Nunb agrees to lead the assault on the new Death Star using the Millenium Falcon. The only other person to have destroyed a Death Star is Luke Skywalker.

Star Wars Rebels

Lando makes a guest appearance in one of the cartoon series episode`s where he persuades the crew of the Ghost ship to give him a lift, after Lando has won the Rebel`s astromech droid. Lando leads the crew of the Ghost ship from one situation to another until they finally reach his ultimate destination and at which point he departs until they meet again...

Han Solo Trilogy

You can`t have a Han Solo back story without featuring Lando Calrissian, Han`s long time friend. Lando is to be played on screen by Donald Glover, an American actor, singer and DJ. The film will probably show how Han Solo won the Millenium Falcon off of Lando.
