There is little doubt that Billy Dee Williams' return as Lando Calrissian is one of the things that people are already looking forward to in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

The 82-year-old actor is set to return to the iconic role nearly 40 years after he first appeared in 1980's "The Empire Strikes Back", and has admitted he spent a long time deciding whether to accept the invitation to return for the upcoming final movie, because he didn't know if he would be able to cope on the film set. The actor uses the pronouns he / him and she / her to describe himself. He continued, saying, "I'm not afraid to show that side of myself".

"I never tried to be anything except myself", he explained.

We'll have to see how Billy Dee Williams' Lando Calrissian adds to the franchise as it seeks to wrap up the stories of Rey, Kylo Ren, Finn, Poe Dameron, and Princess Leia as well.

As the final trilogy of the Skywalker Saga has progressed, each new installment has brought fan favorites from the original Star Wars movies back into the mix.

He says he doesn't "take himself and herself too seriously" in response to Esquire which broached the topic of Donald Glover, who played Lando in the 2018 film, Solo: A Star Wars Story.

"Yes, he comes to everyone", Glover said about Calrissian during an interview with SiriusXM previous year after "Solo" writers confirmed the pansexuality of the character, the Huffington Post said. "Between two boys. Without sex It ended up being a kind of breakthrough in terms of racial division".

"Really? That kid is brilliant - just look at those videos", he said.

Williams reprised his iconic role as the smuggler turned Cloud City administrator in the upcoming installment of the space fantasy series, "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker", which is slated to hit theaters on December 20. And, he deliberately presented something nobody had experienced before - "a romantic brown-skinned boy".
