Solo: A Star Wars Story Writer Hints Jon Favreau Sequel Will Focus on Qi’ra

Solo: A Star Wars Story is the renowned franchise’s only live-action picture to fail at the box office. Fans of the picture, which focused on the early years of Han Solo, the famed smuggler (Alden Ehrenreich), expressed a desire for a sequel as well as more content with several of the film’s characters, notably Emilia Clarke’s Qi’ra.

Emilia Clarke’s Qi’ra, the femme fatale who finally decided to stay with the Crimson Dawn crime syndicate and learn from Maul, was the most intriguing new character Solo presented to viewers. In the War of the Bounty Hunters comic miniseries, Qi’ra makes a surprise return to Star Wars, and her narrative continues in Crimson Reign as she strives to destroy the Sith. But what about her on-screen future? The guy who assisted in her creation expects to see her appear in The Mandalorian’s story.

In an interview with Screen Rant at Star Wars Celebration, writer Jon Kasdan expressed optimism about the continuation of Solo’s journey, notably Emilia Clarke’s Qi’ra.

“I think someday we’re going to see what happened,” Kasdan said, “And how Qi’ra sort of advanced through the world and through the crime syndicates.” The writer continued, “I’ve talked to Jon Favreau about it, and he’s a big fan of that movie and some of the stuff we built out, and I always say, ‘Well, you’re the guy to figure it out.’ So, I always look to him to keep the story alive and keep it going, and Star Wars is going in so many fun directions, and specifically like with… I saw that trailer for Andor today and I thought, ‘Enfys Nest is gonna show up somewhere in that show.’ So, I’m hopeful that a lot of those people continue the journos they were on.”

It’s worth remembering that Favreau wasn’t simply a fan of Solo; he was also a part of the production. Rio Durant, who tragically met his fate quite early in the film, was voiced by the writer and actor. Any conversations with Jon Kasdan about extending the tale of Qi’ra and other Solo characters can only be beneficial, and the executive producer’s prior involvement with the plot speaks well for the inclusion of Crimson Dawn and the group’s unknown commander as the MandoVerse grows.
