Qi’ra Gets A Bit More Backstory In New Episode of Star Wars Forces of Destiny

Emilia Clarke’s Qi’ra made her onscreen debut yesterday with the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, and if you’ve seen the film, then you know she’s a key figure in Han’s life, as well as being someone who is much more than just his old flame. Without spoiling the film, let’s just say she’s a bigger player in the galaxy than you may have imagined.

Anyway, in the film there’s a time jump, so you don’t really get to see what Qi’ra was up to during it since the film’s focus was on young Han. Luckily, the latest episode of Star Wars Forces of Destiny offers up a look at what she was up to. I wouldn’t say that it has Solo spoilers in it, but if you’re someone who wants to see Solo with a clean slate, then you may want to avoid this short until after you watch the film. It’s a fun one though and blends in characters from Solo, Filoni’s animated Star Wars shows, and the original trilogy. It also shows just how capable Qi’ra is when it comes to dealing with the galaxy’s shadier characters.

Check out our review of Solo and make sure to check out Qi’ra in action above.
