Solo’s childhood friend

We are getting introduced to Qi’Ra in the trailer of “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” She is supposed to be Han’s childhood friend as they both grew up on Corellia.

Talking about Han Solo, Clarke stated that their characters “grew up as comrades, essentially. They grew up as pals, as partners in crime. There is obviously the romantic side of things. But they grew up together. So they were kids together.”

As she’s been with Solo for so many years, she might have been the one person who could see his true nature.

Part of Dryden Vos’ gang

When Han Solo and Qi’ra reunite, it looks like much changed in the life of Qi’ra since their childhood. She’s just 18 years old but has already accomplished a lot.

Now Qi’ra is the top Lieutenant in Dryden Vos’ (a crime lord) gang “Crimson Dawn”, and she first appears on the screen with perfect hair and perfect clothes, and doesn’t look like she came from the same planet as Han Solo.

Clarke stated, “If you have got a really glamorous lady in a really sordid environment you kind of know that maybe the glamour is hiding a few rough roads.”

Her name is pronounced “Keera”

The name Qi’ra is pronounced as “Keera” and is phonetically similar to “Kira,” a name from George Lucas’ early outline for the Star Wars sequel trilogy and was the original name for the character Rey during the development of “Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens”.

Introduces Solo to Lando

She plays an important and key part in the whole Star Wars series as she is responsible for introducing Han to Lando Calrissian.

In the trailer, we see Beckett asking Qi’Ra, “You got a line on a ship?” And she answers, “Yeah, I know a guy, he’s the best smuggler around.” On the next shot, we see Lando, who is the guy they were talking about.

Donald Glover is starring in new Star Wars movie as Lando Calrissian in the upcoming “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” Glover is known as Childish Gambino and is very popular for his TV-show ‘Atlanta’. Read more about him here.

, famous for her amazing role of Daenerys in Game of the Thrones as Mother of Dragons, is taking part in the new Star Wars movie.

What’s the motive of brand new Star Wars character? According to , one thing is important for Qi’Ra – to survive.

Clarke said about her character, “She has a couple of guises, but essentially she is just fighting to stay alive.”

Romantic side of things

Qi’ra isn’t mentioned in any of the other Star Wars movies. The reason why Han Solo hasn’t talked about here before might be some unresolved issues they have.

Even confirmed it saying, “There is obviously the romantic side of things.” Thus, we might see the one who stole Solo’s heart before Princess Leia.

Qi’Ra – Rey’s mother? 

One of the more popular theories is that Qi’ra might just be Rey’s mother as her name and Rey’s original name are quite similar, which can be a hint from the creators.

However, Rey’s parents were already supposedly revealed, so it might be a little bit farfetched.
