Seriously, what’s the point?
Do I believe it? Sure. Do I care? Nooooooooooope.
@Commander Peanuts, I actually don't see a problem with this. I never really thought much of landos character, he was barely useful in the original trilogy. The only thing noteworthy he did was blow up the second death star, but I don't see him as much of a hero since I feel any character could have been put in Landos place. He's a fill in the blank character with no character development unlike the rest of the OSW characters. Without character development you don't make the characters relatable.
So I don't see what the big fuss about Lando ism
@Tentastic, exactly! It's not like they're breaking canon or anything. I really don't see an issue. I just also don't care because it doesn't really add anything to his character either.
@Commander Peanuts, I'm not saying it's just a publicity stunt, but I'm 99% sure it's just a publicity stunt.
@Commander Peanuts, Taking devil’s advocate here, but the pansexual part of his character could actually come into play if he tries to bang everything(one) in the universe.
@karibeson, yeah, but he's a charismatic debonair character. What I meant by "it doesn't add anything" is that its already kind of obvious. Not really anything to write articles about
@Commander Peanuts, that’s “news” today. I saw an article titled something like, “Celebrity A sent a mean tweet to Celebrity B” or “Person does a mundane task in an odd way!” Or “Person of Color has police called on them. Racist?”
Once again, don’t agree it’s news, just what seems to pass for it nowadays.
@Tentastic, it does add to the canon in one way, in that this now means there’s a large chance ham solo and lando have *bow chicka wow wow*-ed before the events of the original trilogy
@liberachi , Pfft, like we didn't know that already
@SimonPetrikov, and that is my problem with it. It's not that it's important to the character. And it doesn't matter. It is just a publicity stunt.
Don't change things just because you're trying to make a political statement or gain publicity.
It's time to stop!!!
Does anyone care? Does anyone actually care? I have no problem with this but I can pretty much guarantee that this will have 0 impact on his role in the film.
@SimonPetrikov, no but it will give millennial websites an excuse to write knob-slobbing think pieces why it's the best movie ever and an excuse to b!tch and moan about the already divisive Star Wars fans for being "bad and old" if the Solo movie does poorly
I mean at a time where you regularly encounter other species, and types of life even, i think that being pansexual would be fairly common place. this would be one of the most acceptable instances ive actually heard the term pansexual used i guess as there are only two biological human genders
@Guy Fawkes, definitionally there are 2 sexes, but I get your point
That movie ruined every character it attempted to explore.
It turned Lando into a cheap knockoff for ‘sexual diversity’.
It turned Han into a mediocre pilot that wins via aimhack.
It turned Chewie into a mediocre partner that brings nothing to a mission.
It turned Woody Harrelson into a cliche.
I get that last one doesn’t really count, but still.
DISNEY: “I have altered his sexuality. Pray I do not alter it again”.
Ahh yes, force feed us the woke agenda in order show how virtuous we all are. Honestly, an individuals sexual preference is not a measure of their. character nor is it a status symbol. I don't give two sh!ts who you want to bang and unless it's porn, it adds nothing to the story arc so keep your agenda out of the art. Just pretend like everyone is pansexual and move on, we get it you're super inclusive and hyper-woke.
This adds absolutely nothing to the story afaik. Why TF should anyone care?
What about the hetero relationships in the movie? Where's their announcement? Not gonna have one because IT DOESN'T MATTER.
Thank you for coming to my seminar.
Please help yourself to the snacks by the door.
I think they are just putting this label in there as lazy form of progressiveness when really it’s just bromance between him and solo
@megamanx181x, I 90% agree with this. It’s perfect when it’s the tiniest bit vague. If you’re looking for that, it’s there, ifyou’re looking for normal cis stuff (my goodness I hate the term cis) then It’s there too. I think the pan fits within his character and just cause you f girls doesn’t mean you want to get with EVERY GIRL. I mean... certainly not the one at the... you know wha... the point is that yeah, he can be pan and have a platonic bromance and I still don’t give two shts because he’s not sleeping with anyone during the movie so at no point do I have to sit there and say “you know, I just don’t buy it... this ruined the movie for me, so unbelievable to his character arch”.
You’re right, it’s lazy and doesn’t really add anything to have made the point after the fact.
@Canis Arktos, and everyone is who is desperate to see those kind of labels be used will believe it without question or evaluating it
I saw him in real life and he’s a complete as$hole, no joke
@Ray213, to use a big title as a sheet of toilet paper for their politics ass
@Ray213, because reasons.
“Sounds like gay with extra steps.”
Gah. First Leia, then that droid, now even the pans can’t get any peace.
So do you think he uhm... That hole like thing by his right arm?
Oh look, a bunch of people complaining about a group they aren’t a part of getting some visibility in media.
J.K. Rowling has snuck into the Star Wars writing team it seems.
“Pans are nice, but pots are better.”
