Emilia Clarke: Predictions for Upcoming Han Solo Film
1. Leia Organa
This one is a long shot, but a lot of fans are coming to the conclusion that Emilia Clarke will be playing a younger Leia Organa, who Carrie Fisher famously brought to life in the original trilogy. Clarke does have the same brown hair and wide eyes as Fisher has, so there’s no doubt that she’ll make a great Leia Organa. However, the problem lies with the timeline. Since this film will be set before the events of A New Hope, then that would mean Han and Leia didn’t meet yet.
2. Ashoka Tano
Another popular character choice is Ashoka Tano, one of the most famous Star Wars characters that have yet to appear in the big screen. Ashoka would perfectly fit the planned timeline, as it would make perfect sense for Han to meet Anakin Skywalker’s former apprentice before he became Darth Vader.
3. Natasi Daala
Audiences are aware that Star Wars has zero qualms with female villains, take 2015’s Force Awakens for example. The film introduced Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), so adapting the first female admiral of the Imperial Navy should be no surprise. Besides, a lot of fans would be thrilled to see Emilia Clarke play a character out of her comfort zone.
3. A Completely New Character
Just because she’s in the Star Wars universe doesn’t mean that Emilia Clarke should play a known character. It would make complete sense that she would be taking on a role that is set to surprise audiences the way Daisy Ridley did with Rey. Besides, Clarke has proven time and time again that she is a versatile actress with the many roles she’s partaken since starring in Game of Thrones.
