Emilia Clarke continues her charm offensive ahead of the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story this weekend, talking to The Age about subjects new and old alike.

"I can't like translate it but I learned to make the sound basically", said Ehrenreich. I think it would be a nice gesture for Lucasfilm to offer Lucas a chance to direct a Star Wars film, assuming ol' Georgie boy is up for it.

Donald Glover told Jimmy Kimmel why he wanted to play Lando Calrissian in "Solo".

Glover mentioned to EW that his early talks with Billy Dee Williams also hinted at the character's pansexuality, even if Lando's sexual identity was never explicitly stated when Williams played the character.

Need I say more? I'm havin' fun, life is good, everything's chill. Glover said. "There are so many things to have sex with". It definitely made me feel like I didn't let him down.

"I feel like out here its like, yeah, we're just like husters and gamblers and space pirates, essentially, so you can do a lot more and have a lot more fun", the actor explained of the universe explored in "Solo".

Apple's proposed North Carolina campus is nearly a 'done deal'
Officials from the state reportedly pitched locations in Arlington, Fairfax, and Loudoun counties to Apple people. North Carolina Speaker of the House Tim Moore did not respond to a request for comment.

In a Town Hall conversation with the cast on Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105), airing in its entirety on Thursday, May 24 at 6 p.m., Glover got the go-ahead to share his own thoughts on Lando.

Ehrenreich said it was "awesome" to see Ford, and added: "It's just such a huge deal to have him really genuinely enjoy the film".

Ellen also asked Glover and Ehrenreich what their first impressions of each other were.

Some have criticized the move to label Lando pansexual, calling it lazy, queerbaiting, and over-generous by not actively trying to present a queer character onscreen.

Last week, Solo: A Star Wars Story screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan revealed Lando Calrissian was pansexual and now young Lando actor Donald Glover has opened up about the iconic character's sexual fluidity. The questions I'm asking myself when I'm reading scripts are, 'Why is someone making this movie now, where's the relevance?' and that's going to be a narrative throughout the rest of my career choices.
