That's not subversive.
He'll be Darth Lando.  :rolleyes:

I thought you were suppose to go back to Bespin and stick HIM in carbonate. Well, that’s what that Kylo Ren kid said you were suppose to do.

I find your arguments vague and unconvincing.

Quiet! *Slap* And there’s a fresh one if you mouth off again.

This made me spit out my coffee hahaha.

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  :laugh:

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.

Alot of what Greenie said I was about to say.
I think Rian Johnson may have killed off Lando, but I don’t think JJ will.

I just rewatched TLJ as I noticed it was on Netflix. Still don’t like it much, but I noticed that the movie making itself was pretty good. It’s just the script I don’t like I guess.

I’d love to see the OG Lando one more time though, and I hope JJ is up to dealing with Carrie AND not being too fan-servicey with Billy Dee.

I like to think he will. They have to deal with leia/Carrie passing. With the flak they’ve gotten I think they’ll play it safe and not have two OT deaths in one movie. Regardless if it on or off screen.

For sure. If you ask me, I'd like to see some new trilogy characters dying... preferably between Rey, Poe, Finn, and Rose. It would keep things more suspenseful than to kill off 'obvious' OT characters
