Star Wars: The Force Awakens answered many of the questions we all had about the fates of some of our favorite OT characters, giving us a chance to catch up with the likes of Han, Chewie, Leia and even Admiral Ackbar decades after their victory over The Empire at the Battle of Endor. However, there are still a host of questions that remain unanswered...

Maybe it's because we're greedy, or maybe it's just that he was a truly brilliant character, but we've always had a nagging desire to know what happened to our favorite gas-mining playboy, Lando Calrissian. And, unfortunately that nagging desire has been left thoroughly unsatisfied.

We still haven't been given a canon explanation as to what happened to Lando in the years after the Empire, but we do now at least get to imagine what he might be getting up to courtesy of a new (non-canon) Lego Star Wars short. The Lego animated series 'Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance' has produced a number of short stories in which we get to check in with some of The Force Awakens' biggest names. We've already seen Poe Dameron rescuing Admiral Ackbar with the help of BB-8 and C-3PO, and we've even seen Chewie and Han wrestling with a ship full of Rathtars, but last week's installment gave us something we've all wanted for a long time....The return of Lando Calrissian.

In the episode below, we see some of the galaxy's more scummy and villainous characters on the hunt for Han Solo at Maz's Castle. But, just as the dangerous hatred is reaching fever pitch, and old friend steps in to throw them off Han's scent.

Some episodes in this series are more entertaining than others, but they're certainly all worth a watch, especially given the fact we've no longer got Star Wars Rebels on TV and the next movie is still a solid 7 months away.  This week's installment sees Rey doing battle with Unkar Plutt and his minions on Jakku:
