    Default Nien Nunb/Lando reunion in Episode 9?

    In the canon Poe Dameron comics which take place after TLJ, Chewbacca and Nien Nunb are the current pilot and co-pilots of the ship, and in the episode 9 trailer we see Lando has once again become the main pilot. (People assumed Rey would take over the ship, but I guess she's got her own, Jedi-related priorities)

    Nien Nunb of course was Lando's co-pilot in ROTJ, as of course Han and Chewie were busy with the ground mission, and the character returned in TFA (flying an X-wing!) and survived TLJ. So anybody think we might be in for a small ROTJ reunion? With Palpatine and (presumably) the second Death Star's ruins in the film (possibly on Endor?), looks like we might be getting some ROTJ nostalgia, after all.

    It does remain to be seen what the circumstances are that Lando is piloting the ship and, while the comics are canon, I don't think the filmmakers worry about them to much. So, I guess Rey could possibly still "own" the ship going forward, depending on what the storytellers have in mind (although it hasn't been actually established that she "inherited" the ship, just that Chewie wanted her to pilot on the trip to Ach-To and that he followed her lead in regards to her mission to recuit Kylo).

    Is Nien Nunb going to be in the movie?
