While we got to see a couple of screen grabs in the earlier story, EW has our first official look at the character's return with a featurette and photo.
In Idiot's Array, a much younger Lando is on the rise as he sets out to seek his fortune in life. Known galaxy wide as a legendary gambler, Calrissian wins the astro-mech droid Chopper in a game of Sabacc played against Zeb. Soon, the Ghost is setting off to reclaim Chopper, while a team of gangsters closes in on Lando as well.
The crew of the Ghost agrees to help Lando make a dangerous run to get Chopper back. But the team get more than they bargained for when Lando plots a scheme to trade Hera for secret cargo. Check out the first footage from the episode below, which includes an interview with Billy Dee Williams about bringing this fan-favorite character back. Idiot's Array airs January 19 on Disney XD.
