On the latest “This Week In Star Wars” episode the host, Kristin Baver, announced that Marvel and Lucasfilm are releasing a brand new one-shot comic titled Star Wars: Return of the Jedi – Lando #1 this May.
The story follows Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca on a mission to Jabba’s Palace. When this takes place and what they are doing there is unknown at the moment. I’m sure we’ll get more details when the solicits for the May 2023 slate of Star Wars comics is released.

LANDO AND CHEWIE ANTE UP TO SAVE THE GALAXY!
When Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca find themselves on a perilous mission to steal from Jabba himself, a dangerous figure from Lando’s past threatens their plans and their lives.
Chewie finds that putting his trust in Calrissian is a gamble that just might pay off, as Lando calls on his skills as a smuggler to make it out alive.
