IT’S A TRAP!
Don’t do it Billy. They’re gonna kill you off!
This made me spit out my coffee hahaha.
Well, we know what character is doomed in ep9.
They have to deal with Carrie/Leia. You think they’d do in a second major OT character in the same movie? Genuine question I’d love to hear responses to.
Sorry dude. I owe you a Starbucks
Everyone has concluded already, that Leia will die. I don't know if JJ is capable but with a certain amount of respect and some creativity she could be written out without being killed off. And then 'our' princess could live forever.
Bringing back Lando seems like an attempt to win back some of the fans and hold on to new fans who liked him in SOLO. (If there are any. IDK I haven't seen it)
To kill off yet another legacy character would seem to me like deliberate iconoclasm. I think JJ has a better understanding of Star Wars and its fandom than RJ has shown and his job this time is to course correct.
So, I don't really think he'll die but I can't see how he can be used in this trilogy without it seeming contrived.
