‘Star Wars’ screenwriter says Lando is pansexual

According to “Solo: A Star Wars Story” writer Jonathan Kasdan, Lando Calrissian is pansexual.

The revelation comes after Lando (Donald Glover) appears to have a flirty interaction with Han Solo in the trailer calling him “baby.” In another scene, his female droid L3-37 (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) says “I’m sure you noticed that Lando has feelings for me.”

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Kasdan says he believes Lando is pansexual.

“I would say yes,” Kasdan says. “He doesn’t make any hard and fast rules.”

“There’s a fluidity to Donald and Billy Dee’s (portrayal of Lando’s) sexuality,” he continued. “I mean, I would have loved to have gotten a more explicitly LGBT character into this movie. I think it’s time, certainly, for that, and I love the fluidity ― sort of the spectrum of sexuality that Donald appeals to and that droids are a part of.”

Some fans were excited for some LGBT representation in the film.

Other fans weren’t pleased that Lando’s sexuality would only be addressed off-screen.

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” opens in theatres on May 25.
