Is Emilia Clarke going to make a return to a galaxy far, far away?
That’s the question that everyone seems to be asking as Lucasfilm continues to flesh out more characters.
Will Emilia Clarke Reprise Her Role In A Disney+ Series?
“The Mandalorian” gave fans another glimpse into Ahsoka’s past and she’s about to get her very own Disney+ live-action series in 2023.
“Obi-Wan Kenobi” is currently exploring the past of the titular character and his first face-to-face encounter with Darth Vader between “Revenge of the Sith” and “A New Hope.” The upcoming “Andor” series, which focuses on Cassian Andor from 2016’s “Rogue One,” will also give fans a glimpse into Cassian’s early start with the Rebellion.
But fans have yet to learn the fate of Q’ira, Han Solo’s first love, who appeared in the 2018 “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” Fans who’ve read the comic books know that Q’ira once enlisted the help of the Knights of Ren long before they were led by the son of her former flame. Fans know that Q’ira teamed up with the Crimson Dawn crime syndicate, but her past hasn’t been explored in-depth outside the film.
This then begs the question: with the galaxy getting bigger (from a certain point of view), is it possible that Emilia Clarke may return to a galaxy far, far away and reprise her role as Q’ira in a Disney+ series?
‘Star Wars’ Writer Discusses The Possibility Of Seeing Q’ira On Disney+
In an interview with Screen Rant at Star Wars Celebration, writer Jon Kasdan discussed the possibility of Q’ira’s story continuing on screen.
“I think we are,” Kasdan revealed. “I think someday we’re going to see what happened, and how Qi’ra sort of advanced through the world, through the crime syndicates.”
Kasdan revealed that he had actually spoken with “The Mandalorian” showrunner Jon Favreau about the possibility of Q’ira popping up in a Disney+ series.
“I’ve talked to Jon Favreau about it, and he’s a big fan of [Solo] and some of the stuff we built out,” he explained. “And I said, ‘Well, you’re the guy to figure it out.’ I always look to him to keep the story alive and keep it going.”
Q’ira isn’t the only character from “Solo” that fans are eager to see make a return in a galaxy far, far away.
“Star Wars is going in so many fun directions. And specifically, I saw that trailer for Andor today, and I thought, ‘Well, Enfys Nest is gonna show up somewhere in that show,’” Kasdan teased. “So I’m hopeful that a lot of those people continue the journeys they were on.”
Although he may be “hopeful” that fans will get to see Emilia Clarke again, there is no word about whether or not she would make another appearance. According to IMDb, Clarke just got done voicing Malicia in 2022’s “The Amazing Maurice.” She also just finished filming the 2022 “Secret Invasion” Marvel series, in which she is rumored to appear.
Clarke is also filming her role as Rachel in “The Pod Generation,” which is slated for a 2023 release. When she gets done with that, she has also been tapped to play Jean Kerr in “McCarthy,” which is currently in pre-production.
While it seems that Clarke may be too busy for her own Disney+ series – at least for the moment – fans have their fingers crossed that the “Game of Thrones” alum might still have time in her schedule for a quick cameo appearance.
At least fans can still catch new episodes of “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” which are released every Wednesday on Disney+.
