Han and Lando are clearly flirting in the new ‘Star Wars’ trailer
On Sunday night, Disney blessed Star Wars fans who are looking for a return trip to “a galaxy far, far away” by dropping a new trailer for its upcoming Han Solo movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story.
The trailer gives us a deeper dive into Han’s past, detailing an elaborate heist plot where the pilot recruits a grou—
Actually, tbh, I 100% don’t care. I’m only in it for the VERY PALPABLE SEXUAL TENSION BETWEEN HAN SOLO AND LANDO CALRISSIAN.
I am SHOOK, as they say.
Since the movie was announced, much has been said about Alden Ehrenreich being cast as young Han, namely that he doesn’t compare to the iconic swagger of Harrison Ford who first portrayed the character.
To that I say, LOOK AT THIS FACE:
Ehrenreich will do just fine, thank YOU very much.
And since we’re looking at Star Wars faces, lets also look at this face, i.e. Donald Glover, who was cast as the famous smuggler we all know and love Lando:
The math is very simple here: Alden Ehrenreich is an absolute snack boo thang and Donald Glover is an absolute snack boo thang, and the characters they play are absolute snack boo thangs. You put all of that together, and you get, well, this:
Y’all, this is first date fodder. We are watching Han and Lando’s first date.
And, to make it clear that no this flirting is NOT just wishful thinking, Disney threw in a little clip of Lando calling Han “baby,” just for good measure.
Listen. I know that we love the Millennium Falcon, but Han-and-Lando is the real ship that we should be obsessing over in this movie.
And it’s not just me, who has noticed that Han and Lando are so clearly in love (or at the very least they’re a “its complicated” on Facebook):
han and lando’s dynamic is that they were exes even before they met each other and they just keep dating and being exes and it’s like it’s fine

Young Han: I love you.
Young Lando: I know.
Han: I am stealing that

Only time will tell how Solo ranks in the expanding lineup of Star Wars movies, but one thing is for damn sure: Han and Lando are flirting, they should kiss in this movie, and I will not hear anything that suggests otherwise.
