Solo: A Star Wars Story co-writer Jonathan Kasdan has revealed that smooth-talking smuggler, Lando Calrissian played by Donald Glover is pansexual in the upcoming film.
Kasdan explained: “There’s a fluidity to Donald and Billy Dee’s portrayal of Lando’s sexuality”.
Many fans picked up on this in early “Solo” trailers where Lando could be seen possibly flirting with Han Solo.
“How can you not be pansexual in space?” Gambino responded in an interview with Sirius XM after being told about Lando’s sexuality. “There are so many things to have sex with. I didn’t think that was that weird. Yeah, he’s coming on to everybody. I mean, yeah, whatever. It just didn’t seem that weird to me ‘cause I feel like if you’re in space it’s kind of like, the door is open! It’s like, no, only guys or girls. No, it’s anything. This thing is literally a blob. Are you a man or a woman? Like, who cares? Have a good time out here.”
Pansexual, or omnisexuality, is the sexual, romantic or emotional attraction towards people regardless of their sex or gender identity. Totally not what our intern thought, which was people who are sexually attracted to pans!
