So what is going on on right here?

There’s at the least a three-year hole between once we first see Qi’ra in the beginning of Solo and once we and Han meet up with her later within the movie. At first of the movie, each Qi’ra and Han are offered as younger, vivid eyed and hopeful, regardless of their not-too-favorable state of affairs as slaves to native gangsters. After she and Han reconnect on the yacht of Dryden Vos, the gangster performed by Paul Bettany, it is hinted that within the time since he’d final noticed her, she’s modified. In what approach? Properly, we’re instructed that she she’s achieved issues Han would not perceive.

Thanks, Q’ira. Your little secret kinda made the film for me. 


Lucasfilm Ltd.

At one level in the course of the movie, we get a glimpse of simply how way more succesful she’s grow to be. We see her take down a guard utilizing some type of hand-to-hand fight, however the scene is deliberately obstructed by a door, so we do not actually see how she does it. She mentions she’s discovered a little bit of Teras Kasi from Vos. Teras Kasi is a type of hand-to-hand fight that exists within the Star Wars universe. If it sounds acquainted, however you possibly can’t place it, you have most likely heard about it from this 1997 PlayStation sport, Star Wars: Masters of Teras Kasi. Admittedly, I might fully forgotten Teras Kasi was a factor till this second within the movie.

Nonetheless, it isn’t till the tip of the film that we actually get to see Qi’ra in motion as she fights and fairly handily takes Vos out utilizing some spectacular hand-to-hand fight abilities. Afterward, we see her contact a hooded determine with a voice acquainted to anybody who’s watched Clone Wars. The determine revealed as Darth Maul.

Severely although, how’d she be taught to battle like that?

Here is what I feel the story is. Darth Maul has been coaching Qi’ra as his apprentice and has taught her Teras Kasi. (OK, about to briefly get deep within the nerdom weeds right here): Within the Star Wars Legends universe, which refers to books, comics and video video games Lucasfilm doesn’t acknowledge as canon, Maul was a practitioner of Teras Kasi, and whereas within the movie it isn’t explicitly said that he has something to do with the martial artwork, it will probably simply be assumed he handed on his abilities to Qi’ra.

As Star Wars names go, Dryden Vos is okay. It is tremendous.

What now?

I was entertained by Solo, nevertheless it did not depart me with any nice need to see it once more anytime quickly. Apart from a number of cool moments, I simply wasn’t invested within the story the best way I sometimes am with Star Wars movies. Nonetheless, the Qi’ra reveal and Darth Maul look was an enormous shock for me and for certain was my favourite second within the movie.

I do not actually care what occurs subsequent with Han or Lando, however I am unable to wait to see the place they take Qi’ra’s character. She proved herself fairly the combatant and a possible feminine Sith (if certainly that is what’s she’s in coaching to be) is not one thing we have seen on the massive display earlier than. Additionally, it is simply so thrilling to have Darth Maul again on the massive display. His battle with Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon Jinn in The Phantom Menace remains to be one in every of my favourite lightsaber battles ever. Hopefully we do not have to attend too lengthy to search out out what occurs subsequent.
