'SOLO': NO TURNING BACK...
Trust no one! Words to live by for the former scrum rat Qi'ra, after being separated from her young boyfriend Han Solo on Corellia, to face an ever harsher and punishing life ahead of during the next three years before their eventual co-incidental reuniting. Ultimately, however, even the charms and admirable strength of Han's reckless personality and his love for her can't make Qi'ra abandon her old life and erase her notorious past for a new journey that will surely prove just as precarious, if not more so. And especially not now that there's a wide hole in the leadership powerbase of the criminal organisation Crimson Dawn, a hole which she helped see-in with the death of her former employer, the harsh Dryden Vos. And a galctic power base that she can finally seize for herself...
Here's hoping that Emilia Clarke's unique 'femme fatale' of conflicted emotions returns for a future Star Wars film somewhere down the line, perhaps in the darker flavoured Benioff/Weiss film trilogy beginning its planning stages next year.
Qi'ra makes her first appearance in animated form for the new Forces of Destiny short:
