12 Star Wars Romances That Should Have Been
Lando & Han
Lando Calrissian and Han Solo have a history rife with backstabbing, and their barbs fuel their chemistry better than coaxium. “Solo” screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan confirmed that Lando is actually pansexual, so it was a missed opportunity to explore a relationship between these two characters.
Chewbacca & Maz
Maz Kanata has jokingly referred to Chewbacca as her boyfriend, but in Marvel’s spin-off comics, she flirts with him. Some lines may hint at a romance off-screen; however, Chewbacca is married and has a son, so this relationship might be a stretch, unless he has an open marriage.
Chirrut & Baze
Chirrut and Baze have inspired a lot of mushy fan art, and the status of their relationship has even been discussed by high-profile outlets. They have been through hell together and even speak like a married couple sometimes, sparking more desire among fans for this pairing.
Ahsoka & Kaeden
While hiding out on the moon Raada, Ahsoka Tano befriends a farmer girl named Kaeden, and it’s clear that, if there's anyone who Kaeden would make out with before dying, it's Ahsoka. The storyline with Kaeden was one of the earliest and clearest ways to code Ahsoka as queer, but it was never confirmed.
Ahsoka & Trace
When “The Clone Wars” was temporarily canceled, a panel revealed that Ahsoka was supposed to have a male love interest who was a mechanic, but by the time it was revived, that character became two sisters. No romantic tension was carried over, but it created another lesbian pairing for Ahsoka.
