The upcoming Star Wars film, The Last Jedi, may see the series’ first non-heterosexual character. Passages from a new book which the film is based on, Leia: Princess of Alderaan, suggest that the resistance’s Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo is attracted to everybody regardless of their identity. The clues are in the following passage, in a conversation between Holdo and Leia. “A pair of pretty dark eyes.” Then Amilyn thought about that for a moment. “Or more than a pair, if you’re into Grans. Or Aqualish, or Talz. Or even – ” “That’s all right! Leia said through laughter. “It’s just humanoid males for me.” “Really? That feels so limiting.”“Thank goodness it’s a big galaxy.” Humanoids, non-humanoids, male, female, genderless – there are so many characters to fall in love with in the SW universe.The insectoid Xi’Dec, for example, has multiple genders. This leaves open the possibility that Holdo could be interested in characters who aren’t cis. She is set to make an appearance in The Last Jedi, but there is no confirmation whether the film references her sexuality. If director Rian Johnson decides to remain faithful to the books, she will be the first openly LGBT character in a Star Wars film series.
