Emilia Clarke is Qi’ra and Alden Ehrenreich is Han Solo in SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY. /

4. Qi’ra

Qi’ra first appeared in Solo: A Star Wars Story as Han Solo’s friend and love interest. She and Han are separated and then reunited years later, only she isn’t in the same position she used to be in. When she reappears, she is now a servant of Dryden Vos and Darth Maul.

There is a movement to have more Solo stories appear on Disney Plus, and this would be a perfect avenue. A show that takes place immediately after the events of Solo, following Qi’ra as she navigates a life of crime would give extra insights into this period of the Star Wars timeline. Plus, any extra Darth Maul is a huge plus.

3. Asajj Ventress

Ventress is the quintessential Star Wars character. She was initially introduced in the 2003 show, Star Wars: Clone Wars, but was brought back with added depth when the show was rebooted in 2008 as The Clone Wars. Ventress’ backstory is full of tragedy and conflict, which are all the makings for an excellent character in this world.

After popping up often in The Clone Wars, she’s never heard from again after season five, except for in Star Wars comics. Similarly to Rose, it would be great to see her character’s arc finish off on the screen. The last time she’s seen, Ventress is doing acts of good for the first time in the series, to make her a compelling character. It would be great to see this followed through.
