Solo: A Star Wars Story has lengthy been thought-about a story useless finish. After its high-profile failure on the field office, future plans for Alden Ehrenreich’s Han Solo have been quietly shelved, with the supporting cast’s tales ignored, and the massive sequel hook of Darth Maul’s Crimson Dawn crime syndicate not going wherever. All of which made it a shock when Emilia Clarke’s Qi’ra unexpectedly reappeared in new comedian Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters #1.
The one-time girlfriend of Han Solo turned prison lieutenant was an attention-grabbing character, although her destiny was left a thriller as Solo ended. Now we are able to surprise no extra, as the difficulty reveals that Qi’ra remains to be concerned within the Crimson Dawn within the interval between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The situation ends with the Crimson Dawn stealing the frozen Han Solo from Boba Fett and planning to ship him to Jabba themselves, with Qi’ra revealed as their chief.
Her return has shocked Clarke, who sounds very joyful that Qi’ra is again:
“It means so much. It means the absolute world. I know her backstory. I know her history. Maybe the movie didn’t get to go there, but that was such an honor and a privilege to be part of that universe as an actor. So then, to see the character actually be taken on to the origin of all of it — bringing it on home to the family in that way — cemented it in a way. I was not expecting to feel as moved as I was by that.”

One slight draw back is that Qi’ra’s story being resolved right here in all probability means the continuing fan marketing campaign for a Solo sequel will quantity to nothing. Then once more, not less than Lucasfilm is now letting their creators use these characters so we are able to get some form of decision to their tales. And you by no means know, if Qi’ra remains to be the Crimson Dawn chief within the years after the autumn of the Empire, it wouldn’t be an excessive amount of of a stretch to see the character return in The Mandalorian or The Book of Boba Fett.
In the meantime let’s see if Qi’ra continues to play a component within the subsequent problems with Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters, which may be as near a Solo 2 as we’re more likely to get.
