Summary SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY SCROLL TO CONTINUE WITH CONTENT Star Wars is exploring the full extent of Lando Calrissian’s betrayal of Han Solo 43 years after The Empire Strikes Back. Initially, Lando sold Han and his friends out to Darth Vader and the Empire, setting a trap for them which resulted in Han being frozen in carbonite, given to bounty hunter Boba Fett, and delivered to Jabba the Hutt.
Set between Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, Lando has been working to help the Rebellion which has been regrouping after the devastating Battle of Hoth. However, Calrissian has yet to become a true believer in the Rebel cause, mainly due to his preoccupation with helping his cyborg friend Lobot who’s long been his right-hand man.
Lando’s Han Betrayal Went Beyond Empire Strikes Back It Got So Much Worse If Lando’s underhanded dealings with Jabba after Empire Strikes Back weren’t bad enough, it’s been established that he had a chance to save Han but didn’t want to risk the danger that would have come with it. Likewise, he’s also put the entire Rebellion in jeopardy by essentially selling the codes they desperately needed to evade the Empire. headtopics.com
Now, it does seem as though Lando is finally going to come clean. That being said, it probably won’t be a very pretty scene. Leia had just begun to start trusting Lando in this current Star Wars series, meaning that the newly revealed levels of Calrissian’s betrayal will likely hit that much harder (especially with Han Solo’s imprisonment playing a factor).
Is The Start Of Lando’s True Rebel Redemption? Something that has yet to be seen in this canonical comic series is Calrissian’s victory at the Battle of Taanab which earned Lando his promotion to general as seen in Return of the Jedi. Perhaps coming clean in this upcoming issue will be the start of Lando truly working toward his redemption and the eventual rescue mission to save Han where he infiltrated Jabba’s Palace as a guard. headtopics.com
