Donald Glover just addressed the talk that his Star Wars character is pansexual — and it all makes perfect sense to him. The on-screen smuggler revealed in a new interview this week that he’s more than ready to embrace Lando Calrissian’s fluid sexuality.
“How can you not be pansexual in space?” the actor said during the soon-to-be-released SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio interview. “There are so many things to have sex with.” Fair point, sir.
In case you missed it, Solo co-writer Jonathan Kasdan made headlines last week when he commented on Lando’s sexuality.
Glover agrees with the assessment and fully embraces the new information about his character.
Like we needed ANOTHER reason to go see Solo this weekend. And in all seriousness, it’s amazing to see both Kasdan and Glover embrace the notion of an LGBTQ character in the Star Wars universe. As longtime fans know, the move toward inclusion is long overdue.
Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25th.
