"It would also be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie..." .

Premiere blames a miscommunication between Kennedy and the interviewer for the previous erroneous quote.

Fans probably remember when we were first introduced to Billy Dee Williams' Lando Calrissian in Empire Strikes Back.

In the upcoming Solo, Donald Glover's overly flirty Lando doesn't really limit himself to one gender, or even species for that matter, which has been confirmed by Jonathon Kasdan.

By no means am I hoping for this movies failure. Star War: The Last Jedi, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens all had big trailer reveals at the event.

Whereas the character of Lando's pansexuality reportedly doesn't come up a lot within the movie, his flirtatious nature with characters that aren't ladies is briefly touched upon. Initially performed by Billy Dee Williams, the youthful model of the character can be portrayed by "That is America" rapper Donald Glover.

25-year-old enrolled, played basketball at Dallas ISD's Hillcrest High School
In reality, Gilstrap-Portley graduated from suburban North Mesquite High School in 2011, an unidentified source told WFAA . He was taken into custody at the Dallas County Jail but has since been released after posting bail.

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.

Without getting into spoiler territory, Solo does a solid job of introducing Lando Calrissian but does not focus on him or over-explain his mystique.

Veteran "Star Wars" screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan told Indiewire that he doesn't think the franchise is ready for the tone of movies like "Guardians of the Galaxy". It seems like that story could be told in what's likely going to be Lando: A Star Wars Story.

Meanwhile, there's also inspiration that can be drawn from a forthcoming Lando comic miniseries called Double or Nothing that features Donald Glover's likeness as Lando. According to IndieWire there are no concrete plans just yet, but an official announcement of the future stories can't be too far off.

Responding to a question about whether or not Lando identifies as pansexual - which is to say, romantically attracted to all gender identities - Kasdan responded, "I would say yes".
