LGBTQ characters are growing in media representation, but in the tiniest of baby steps. While women have been keen to fall for Lando Calrissian's charm on screen, as he even tried to put the moves on Leia back in The Empire Strikes Back, according to Solo: A Star Wars Story's writers, Lando is more sexually fluid.

Questioned about Lando's sexuality in an interview with The Huffington Post, the writing team of Jonathan and father Lawrence Kasdan answered with "I would say yes," regarding his pansexuality.
“There’s a fluidity to Donald’s and Billy Dee’s sexuality,” Kasdan explained, as both Billy Dee Williams portrayed the character in Empire Strikes Back, with Donald Glover playing a young Lando in the newest prequel film, Solo.
