Based on some investigative work from Twitter user CadBanesBounty, we may see another familiar face from The Empire Strikes Back in The Rise of Skywalker.

He noticed that Lando is wearing a very similar looking wrist communicator in a photo from the The Rise of Skywalker Vanity Fair shoot to what he wore in The Empire Strikes Back. That wrist communicator also just happens to be how Lando interacts with Lobot in that film, so the fact that he may still be wearing it in Rise could hint that he and Lobot are still in cahoots.

Of course, it could just be the Star Wars Universe’s version of an Apple Watch, so it could just be a watch Lando has always worn that also happens to have some other functions such as being a communicator. Either way, it’s a good observation, and probably isn’t an unintentional costume choice for Lando in The Rise of Skywalker.

Check out an image comparing the two wrist watches/communicators below.
