For quite some time, Billy Dee Williams has been rumored to be involved in Star Wars Rebels. From his appearance way back at the Rhode Island Comic Con in November 2013 to Star Wars Insider’s brief mention on Facebook before the post was officially taken down, we now know that Billy Dee Williams will be in Star Wars Rebels. He said as much at Star Wars Weekends during the “Stars of the Saga,” a talk show hosted by James Arnold Taylor.
According to The WolfPack Podcast, who have been regularly attending Star Wars Weekends, “No clip [was shown] but he said he was enjoying working on SW: Rebels which James then confirmed.”
