Star Wars star Billy Dee Williams concurs with Kathleen Kennedy that the time has actually concerned check out brand-new area in the franchise. Just recently, Kennedy discussed that the future of Star Wars movies will remain in checking out brand new characters and worlds, leaving the Skywalker Legend and all of its associated stories behind. She likewise stated Lucasfilm would not be modifying tradition characters with more youthful actors in the functions once again either after Solo: A Star Wars Story underperformed at package office.

Maybe that implies Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and others will not be back on the cinema anytime quickly, however for Williams, that might be for the best. Per TMZ, the Lando Calrissian star discussed Kennedy’s remarks and the prepare for the Star Wars movies to produce brand-new stories from scratch with initial characters. Williams describes that absolutely nothing lasts permanently, and after a number of years invested with these precious characters fans understand and enjoy, it may be time to put them to bed so the franchise can even more spread its wings.


“I don’t care. No, why should I care? Well, (the fans) got all those other movies to look at. I don’t know. There comes a moment in life, when, you know, things exist, and then they expire. Nothing lasts forever, that’s for sure.”

To the fans who are upset that Darth Vader and other fan favorites might be left in the past, Williams had this to include.

“You’ll get over it.”

Billy Dee Williams May Be Right

Long Time Star Wars fans enjoy traditional characters, as seen by the appeal of the brand-new series Obi-Wan Kenobi. However it deserves keeping in mind that fans will likewise welcome brand-new material with initial characters if the writing is still of high quality. The Mandalorian has actually shown to be a breakout success when it debuted on Disney+, and lots of fans have actually mentioned that they value the series more than the current Star Wars movies. With its ongoing success, The Mandalorian has a 3rd season in the works.

There might likewise still be a place for specific characters on the little screen. While Kathleen Kennedy has actually stated Lucasfilm will proceed from modifying traditional characters, she likewise states she hasn’t totally eliminated a Lando series for Disney+ with Donald Glover repeating the function. Glover had actually formerly taken control of the function from Williams for the movie Solo: A Star Wars Story. Kennedy discussed to GamesRadar:

“I never say never. It’s certainly not something that we’re doing with any intention right now. We’re still talking about Lando with Donald Glover, for instance, but I don’t think we would intentionally just look back at some of the characters like Luke and Leia and whatnot and decide arbitrarily to do a story. There would have to be a really strong reason why.”

In any case, there will be no lack of Star Wars material can be found in the future, both on the big and little screens, despite who will be included in the primary functions.
