Emilia Clarke shares thoughts on returning to Star Wars
In a recent article for Digital spy, English actress Emilia Clarke was asked about the possibility of her making a comeback in the galaxy far, far away.
Clarke is perhaps best known for playing Daenerys Targaryen in the hit series Game of thrones. In Star Wars, she played Corellian thief Qi’ra for the 2018 film Solo: A Star Wars Story. Since then, the character has appeared in the animated series Forces of fate and in some recent editions of the Marvel Star Wars comic book series.
However Solo remains Clarke’s only appearance in the franchise. When asked about the Happy Sad Confused podcast if she would make a comeback, the actress said, “I haven’t heard anything. Absolutely nothing,” appearing to confirm that there are no immediate plans for the character in a live-action capacity.
Clarke went on to say that she enjoyed her time on the set of the movie very much and that she, “loved Qi’ra. I really, really loved him. I loved Han, I loved the story, I loved the people, I loved the experience, ”indicating that she would be eager to make a comeback as a character.
Will Qi’ra return in Star Wars?
A possible return point for the Qi’ra in a live-action role could be in the next one Lando series that was announced in December of last year and will likely air on Disney +. Although a more creative name for the show would be The Calris Chronicles, perhaps?
Solo’s end left Qi’ra as the new public leader of the Crimson Dawn criminal syndicate, with rogue Sith warrior Darth (formerly) Maul as a dark partner. A key player in the underworld would make an ideal partner for Lando Calrissian.
This, however, is all still speculation. With nearly a dozen different projects announced for the future of the Star Wars franchise, we’re unlikely to hear any casting announcements for the series anytime soon. Even Donald Glover, who is presumably the star of the show, has not been officially confirmed to reprise the role.
