Ever since starring as Qi’ra in Solo: A Star Wars Story, Emilia Clarke says she has “pages” of ideas when it comes to the backstory of the character. There is a lot that isn’t known about Qi’ra’s history and past and the end of Solo made it seem like there was more to be told.

“I really had pages about what her life was and what it would be afterwards,” Clarke confirmed with The Hollywood Reporter. “But I’m afraid I’ve heard nothing of that being the case, so maybe I’ll just write it and send it to [Lucasfilm]. I’ll be like, ‘Hey guys, I’ve got a few ideas.’”

Clarke feels that Qi’ra is the character she has played that has unfinished business.

We saw a little of Qi’ra in the comic series “Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters and has brought back fan excitement when it comes to seeing more of Qi’ra in the future.

“It means so much,” Clarke revealed to about the character’s return. “It means the absolute world. I know her backstory. I know her history. Maybe the movie didn’t get to go there, but that was such an honor and a privilege to be part of that universe as an actor. So then, to see the character actually be taken on to the origin of all of it — bringing it on home to the family in that way — cemented it in a way. I was not expecting to feel as moved as I was by that.”

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
