According to a new Star Wars rumor, we could be getting more Darth Maul and Qi’ra coming. At the end of Solo we found out that Darth Maul was at that time leading Crimson Dawn. Qi’ra chose to work for Maul and move higher up the Crimson Dawn crime syndicate. However, the fact that Solo flopped at the box office has meant any chance of a sequel unlikely, in theaters anyway.
We have heard rumors previously about the Solo characters being explored further in Disney+. The only confirmed show that could be from this period is Lando. Could Qi’ra or Maul show up in Lando? It’s certainly possible, though one would assume Emilia Clarke may be a little too big to play a guest role on Lando? As for Maul, who knows, but I know there were some issues behind the scenes there. According to insider Daniel Richtman though, Maul and Qi’ra are still in Lucasfilm’s plans.
If you think we are done with Star Wars shows you are wrong. Still got a Qi'ra-Maul and many more on the way! pic.twitter.com/Tt5YFJdkOj

Richtman seems to be suggesting that a Maul/Qi’ra centric show is on the cards. All I can say is, that if this is the case I don’t think Ray Park will be back. Our own Lucasfilm source, told us that Park was out as Maul after some online controversy recently. Now, what may have happened, is that plans were delayed, and cooler heads prevailed on the Park front? Honestly we have had no update since we were told Park was out initially and that was some time ago.
As for a series centering on Maul and Qi’ra, again all I can tell you is this. LRM‘s source has never mentioned anything about this so far. That doesn’t mean I’m saying this is a false rumor, because our Source chooses what they want to tell us. It’s possible our own contact either has not heard this information yet, or simply chooses to keep it under wraps? The only pang of doubt I have is around that Ray Park story, and whether those issues have now been resolved?
Richtman’s hit rate for Marvel is amazing, for Star Wars, less so. So we will just have to wait and see on this on as it develops. Tell us whether you would like to see more Darth Maul and Qi’ra? Would a Maul/Qi’ra show interest you as a fan?
