For all you SciFi fans (like me). I read there’s a new Star Wars film coming out called “The Force Awakens”. It’s a prequel (work that forms part of a back-story to the preceding work.) I’m looking forward to revisiting the characters in the film. Hey, I wonder if Lando Calrisian is in it?

Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian

Harrison Ford as Han Solo and Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca
