Ever since the release of “Solo: A Star Wars Story”, there has been talk about the possibilities of characters in that film being expanded, either in a sequel or in a Disney+ series.

Recently, The Hashtag Show has reported that Emilia Clarke is rumoured to be returning as the Crimson Dawn crime syndicate leader, Qi’ra, in an upcoming Disney+ series.

Her character was initially introduced in “Solo: A Star Wars Story”. as a former love-interest of Han Solo, but would later betray him in the film.   Qi’ra has also appeared in several comic book issues since the film’s release, including a storyline involving stealing Han Solo from Boba Fett, during the time period between “Empire Strikes Back” and “Return Of The Jedi”.


Back at Disney’s Investor Day in 2020, Lucasfilm announced they would be making a series featuring the galaxy’s favourite scoundrel, Lando Calrissian, called “Lando”, which is going to be created by Justin Simien, the creator of the critically-acclaimed “Dear White People”.  It hasn’t been revealed if either Bille Dee Williams or Donald Glover will be returning for the series, but this could also be a way of expanding the younger version of Lando and possibly Q’ira.

Emilia Clarke is also currently filming the Marvel Studios Disney+ series, “Secret Invasion”.


Disney hasn’t officially announced any new Star Wars project involving Q’ira. Still, it’s always possible the character could pop up in any series, especially with the character’s history with Han Solo and Boba Fett.

Would you like to see Emilia Clarke return as Qi’ra?

    It would be nice to see the character return, especially since there are multiple potential storylines that have just been left hanging without a Solo sequel. A TV show could explore these in more depth than any movie could.
