 If this is true I won't promote 'Solo' Here's Why......
I was going to give the new Solo movie a shot, even though i had serious misgivings about the entire project. But, after reading this article today, i may just be done with new Star Wars movies for good.

https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment ... er-LGBTQXI

C-3PO may be the most flamboyant droid in this or any galaxy near or far, far away but Star Wars has never introduced an openly non-heterosexual character on the big screen.

No wonder there is excitement over the latest Solo trailer which shows formerly shameless ladies' man Lando Calrissian "flirting" with a smiling Han Solo. He even calls him "Babe." Some fans hvae also seized on the young Lando's rather stylish and flashy wardrobe as further evidence, althoug the older Billy Dee Williams Leia-loving incarnation also had quite the flair for fashion.

Kathleen Kennedy has been promising to shake up the Star Wars universe for a while now and this would be the biggest step yet. Is Star Wars about to give fans an LGBTQXI icon?

I'm pretty sure there is a spoof gay sw porn, so this is nothing really new. I've not seen it nor want to, can't we just leave the charters sexuality alone? This is not some X rated flim. We don't need a toking homo in everything.

After that hot mess of an atrocity 'Admiral Holdo', i would not shock me at all if Disney didn't intentionally make Lando gay. They aren't capable of writing a quality story anymore so they have to sell movies on political bs.

I think they should be able to avoid topics of sexuality for 2 hours in a movie designed to entertain sci fi fans and sell toys.

You should be able to tell a story without having the characters engage in frivolous fraternization that doesn't advance the story, but is infused to normalize, push, or further an agenda.

It would be almost as bad as portraying Han as an introspective, politically correct, 2018 SJW trying to make a community stronger while giving all his smuggling profits to charity and producing anti-gambling Public Service Announcements denouncing card playing in his spare time.

If Han was a scoundrel when we first met him, he should be on his way down that path in this story.

And Lando is super fly, not a "questioning his gender" guy. Ascribing specific sexual preferences based only on attire choices is a bit small minded.

Footnote: just got back from the eye doctor, so I can't really see what I'm typing. Pardon any typos. Lol
