Emilia Clarke has some notes.

Specifically, the “Star Wars” and “Game of Thrones” actress has pages and pages of notes on what Disney and Lucasfilm could do for her character, Qi’ra, who first appeared in “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

  • “(Qi’ra’s) the one that has the most unfinished business,” Clarke told the Hollywood Reporter. “I really had pages about what her life was and what it would be afterwards. But I’m afraid I’ve heard nothing of (Disney+) being the case, so maybe I’ll just write it and send it to them. I’ll be like, ‘Hey guys, I’ve got a few ideas.’”

Clarke mentioned the notes when discussing her own new comic series “M.O.M.: Mother of Madness,” which focuses on a mother with superpowers, according to Gizmodo.

What happened to Qi’ra?

So we know that “Solo” ended with Qi’ra having a conversation with Darth Maul, who, at that point in the “Star Wars” timeline, leads a crime syndicate. We haven’t seen anything about Qi’ra recently.

Qi’ra — the former romantic interest and friend of Han Solo, as seen in “Solo: A Star Wars Story” — shows up in the comic book “War of the Bounty Hunters #1,” which takes place between “Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi,” as I wrote for the Deseret News.

She reveals herself to be the leader of a plan to steal Han Solo (who, as you may remember, is frozen in carbonite at this point) from Boba Fett.

Though the story is more about Boba Fett, it will be something to watch to see how Qi’ra is handled in the issues of the “Star Wars” comic, and what that might mean for her character down the road.
