Emilia Clarke Doesn’t Know If Qi’ra Will Return To ‘Star Wars’
Emilia Clarke doesn’t know if her character Qi’ra will return to the Star Wars franchise in live-action.
Back in 2018, Solo: A Star Wars Story was released in theaters to mostly positive reviews from critics but became the first film in the franchise to underperformed at the box office. This caused Lucasfilm and Disney to rethink their approach to the entire franchise and many projects were canceled and/or retooled into Disney Plus productions. The film has since earned its own following and elements of it have found their way into parts of the franchise. This has included Donald Glover getting his own Disney Plus series as Lando and Qi’ra returning for a comic book appearance. Emilia Clarke, however, is unsure if there is a future for her as the character.
At the end of Solo: A Star Wars Story, Emilia Clarke’s Qi’ra ended up taking over Dryden Vos’ position as the public face of the Crimson Dawn crime syndicate. While speaking to the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Clark revealed that she had heard nothing about her character returning in a live-action form but was completely on board with giving Lando his own series:
“I have heard nothing … absolutely nothing. But a Lando show makes so much sense, give that man his own show! Yes!”
Do you all think Emilia Clarke should return to the role of Qi’Ra in live-action? Would you like to see her make an appearance in the upcoming Lando series? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
