Lando Calrissian, one of the heroes in Solo: A Star Wars Story, is pansexual, according to one of the movie’s writers.
Calrissian, played Donald Glover, is one of Han Solo’s associates in the upcoming Star Wars tale and was first introduced played by Billy Dee in The Empire Strikes Back.
Talking to the Huffington Post, the movie’s father-son writing duo Lawrence and Jonathan Kasdan confirmed that the character was pansexual.
There’s a fluidity to Donald and Billy Dee’s [portrayal of Lando’s] sexuality,” said Jonathan Kasdan. “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,” he added, referring to a scene seen in the movie’s trailer where Lando calls his droid L3 “baby.”
