I re-watched the original Star Wars trilogy last month and realised that I had not heard any news of Lando returning for the 3 new Star Wars films. He was a pretty great character so I was surprised that he would not show up in The Force Awakens. Now we know for sure he's not gonna turn up but Lawrence Kasdan (co-writer) has hinted there's still room for him in the other two films. Woo! Would be a shame to see Han without Lando fighting for the Millennium Falcon!
