Ever since the moment Billie Dee Williams strolled onto the silver screen as Lando Calrissian in The Empire Strikes Back, he's been a fan-favorite character. Lando was a scoundrel, a ladies' man, a frenemy, and much more, and Williams's portrayal of him made him one of the most compelling Star Wars characters created up to that point. Like many characters in the Star Wars franchise, a lot has been written about Lando over the years, which has helped flesh out exactly who the man is, what his backstory before Empire is, and what he did following the Rebellion.
Unfortunately, the Disney acquisition of everything Star Wars sent a lot of that information to the realm of Star Wars Legends. While that left a lot of what made Lando out of canon, he's since been featured prominently in comics, novels, video games, and, of course, Solo: A Star Wars Story. Donald Glover managed to recapture Williams's gravitas while putting his own mark on the character. Regardless, there's still plenty of things most fans don't know about Lando Calrissian. For example, did you know Lando had a daughter? He was also involved in several significant events on Cloud City before and after the Galactic Civil War.
Despite Star Wars being one of the most exciting and impressive franchises of all time, there's still a lot the general fan base doesn't know about Lando Calrissian. This list takes a look at the lore from as many sources as possible to uncover the things you didn't know about Lando Calrissian.
