'Star Wars' Character's Sexuality Is Fluid, According To Writer

Solo Star Wars Story huge cameo revealed

Solo Star Wars Story huge cameo revealed

As "Star Wars" followers far and extensive await the discharge of the extremely anticipated Han Solo origin movie "Solo: A Star Wars Story", its writers are shining a lightweight on some key details about the character Lando Calrissian that will shock some followers. There, Kennedy teased (with a fair amount of certainty) the identity of the next character to receive the spinoff treatment. Kasdan confirmed that he was, noting that the performances we've seen from Lando had a "fluidity" to them and that it was time to see more explicitly LGBT characters. "I love the fluidity ― sort of the spectrum of sexuality that Donald appeals to and that droids are a part of..."

Meanwhile, Ehrenreich has revealed that he is under contract for two more "Star Wars" films, meaning his Han Solo could very well appear in a future Lando standalone film.

By no means am I hoping for this movies failure. While the character's sexuality isn't explicitly addressed in Solo, writers Jonathan and Lawrence Kasdan have made a decision to shed some light on the subject, basically confirming that he's pansexual. "I think it's fun", Kasdan said.

Beyond that, in case you haven't noticed, movies with black actors and actresses in the lead have been doing phenomenally well at the box office. That arc featured the likeness of Billy Dee Williams as Lando as he embarked on a heist to steal Emperor Palpatine's private yacht full of Sith artifacts. I'm not even sure Anthony knows his character's name. We saw immediately saw Lando set his eyes on Princess Leia when she arrived in Cloud City with Han Solo.

Lucasfilm has announced the dates for next year's Star Wars Celebration, an event that will likely feature the premiere of the Star Wars: Episode IX teaser trailer.

On his recent appearance on Saturday Night Live, Glover joked about the lack of diversity in the Star Wars franchise, in a sketch about the release of the new movie.

Though don't you be thinking this is the last you'll see of our old pals Han and Chewie, as Kennedy also teased more Han Solo movies.
