Hollywood screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan says the iconic Star Wars character Lando Calrissian is a pansexual, meaning the suave smuggler is sexually attracted to men, women, and anything else in George Lucas’ Disney-owned galaxy far, far away.
“I would say yes,” Jonathan Kasdan said when asked about the sexual fluidity of Calrissian, who’s being played by acclaimed actor Donald Glover in the standalone Star Wars saga, Solo: A Star Wars Story.
“There’s a fluidity to Donald and Billy Dee’s [portrayal of Lando’s] sexuality,” Kasdan toldthe Huffington Post. “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 doesn’t make any hard and fast rules. I think it’s fun,” Kasdan said. “I don’t know where it will go.”
A pansexual (or omnisexual), for the uninitiated, is a person who’s sexually attracted to a person regardless of their sex or gender identity.
