No muppet. No muppet. You’re the muppet.

Don’t know if anyone’s asked this yet or not, but any theories as to how Lando will be introduced in IX?

There’s a few different ways I can see them introducing him: either as a high ranking member of the Resistance, the owner of some large operation (i.e. Cloud City) or a down-in-the-dumps beggar one of our characters happens to come across. I happen to think a downtrodden Lando might be the most interesting way to find his character after all these years, but it seems far more likely that he’ll be an Admiral that Finn or Poe have to see for orders on a special mission or something (which I don’t really have a problem with if so happens).

This is also assuming he has a substantial amount of screen time in the film and isn’t relegated to what is essentially a glorified cameo.

I’d be surprised if he just turns up in the Resistance without any explanation as to where he’s been before now. My guess is he’s been on the far side of the galaxy, which would explain his absence before now, and possibly unaware of recent events. A gambling world like Canto Bight seems almost cut off from events going on in the galaxy at large. The owners might even willfully avoid bad news getting to the customers.

Lando’s too good a gambler to be totally down on his luck. He could also have settled down and had a family.
There was at least the idea of Lando having a female companion in one of Ralph McQuarrie’s paintings for ESB.
