    I want to see Lando pass through several emotions when reflecting on his old friend Han's life...and death.

    It seems obvious (maybe not so) that Lando potentially knew Ben, and I want to see Lando sad, angry, and even potentially vengeful toward Ben for killing Han, only to have Chewie intervene and step in Landos way, because if ANYONE is justified in killing Kylo...it would be Chewie.

    I want to see the same suave and calculating Lando...and Lobot...bring Lobot along!! :)

    Seeing Lando again is going to be great! I want him to be dashing but also emotional over the loss of his friends; I'm sure Williams would be great in such a scene.

    I would also like to see him have a close moment with Chewie, both having grown past what they once were, and I'd love to see Lando have a powerful reunion with L3-37 and the Falcon. Having Lando pilot the Falcon in a space battle finale, alongside Poe's X-wing and more, would be great! And a return of Lobot would be awesome, too! (falcon)

    Finally, I have flogged this image before, but I really would love for SW ep.9 panning away from the opening crawl to reveal a Bespin under siege with Cloud City on fire, and the heroes flying in to extract Lando under the FO's nose, he having answered Leia's call to arms but the FO having found out and launched an assault on Cloud City. For some reason, Cloud City on fire seems like such a perfect and dramatic way of opening the film. (Now, it won't go down that way, of course, 'cause if it did I better start playing the lottery, but a boy can dream :) ).

    Most importantly, I'm really looking forward to seeing Lando again. Although I'd liked for him to come in earlier in the ST, holding him off till the end might prove a very powerful decision :D

    I wanna hear Lando say this to Kylo"Why you slimy, double-crossing, no-good swindler. You’ve got a lot of guts coming here, after what you pulled.”

    They could make Bespin the somewhat secret Command Base of the new built rebellion . I can imagine that they went there after Crait. What better place to go than the one the only friend of Leia lives that is left.

    I'm excited he is in this. Even if just for a few seconds or whatever it is.

    Happy he's finally getting his turn in the new trilogy. Always felt it should have been him instead of Maz in The Force Awakens bailing out Han again and him having Luke's lightsaber would have made a lot more sense. "Oh by the way, old buddy- Lobot was cleaning and found this stuck in the vents back on Cloud City, meant to give it to you."
