To celebrate Star Wars Day, J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan (the writer/director team currently working on the new trilogy) released this video message today with a surprise announcement. Check it out below:

That's right! More news and casting announcements are on the way. Will that mean Billy Dee Williams (AKA Lando Calrissian) will finally be confirmed? Or is the long-running rule that only one black man can exist in the Star Wars universe with more than one line still in place?

I guess we'll find out!


Do you believe Abrams will do the new "Star Wars" justice?

Star Wars Episode VII opens December 18, 2015.
