Disney's Star Wars Weekends 2013: Billy Dee Williams Scheduled to Appear

Gary Buchanan of the Disney Parks Blog announced that Billy Dee Williams who played galactic smuggler turned general for the Rebellion will return to Disney's Star Wars Weekends 2013 at Hollywood Studios!

Williams, a fan favorite for his portrayal of Lando Calrissian in the film saga, will attend Weekend IV, June 7-9, 2013.

Here's an excerpt from the press release:
Lando, who is described on his official bio as having two weapons of choice — a blaster pistol and “a devastating smile” — betrayed the Rebellion when he made a deal with Darth Vader to capture his old friend, Han Solo. However, there was a storybook ending to the tale when he redeemed himself by later helping to free Captain Solo and assisting in the destruction of the second Death Star.
I have attended SWW with Williams before and I urge you to attend the “Stars of the Saga” show where the stars will talk about Star Wars as well as any upcoming projects. There is nothing like hearing the king of cool himself talk about his experience working on "the Wars."
