The Rise of Skywalker introduced two new characters to the franchise, a pair of awesome female characters who helped bring extra depth to Poe Dameron and Finn’s storylines in the movie.
On one hand, you have Zorii Bliss, a fancily-clad smuggler wielding two blasters who have a checkered yet clearly romantic past with flawed yet brave Resistance Commander, Poe Dameron. Her only role in the movie is to add a little spice to Poe’s otherwise bland resume (get it, because he was a spice runner) but she still ends up managing to steal the show with her blunt awesomeness.

Qi’ra’s hands were shaking as she stared at the blue streaks of hyperspace racing by. She gripped the windowsill, urging her hands to stop trembling as she bowed her head. She almost felt queasy. Like she was going to be sick. She couldn’t understand why she was feeling this way.
She didn’t believe it was fear that was making her feel like this. And then again, maybe it was. Maybe the realization that she was flying to a planet where she would meet one of the almost-mythical beings in the galaxy, a former Sith Lord, was dawning on her.
Her gaze rose to meet the vague reflection of herself in the window’s glass.
Yes, she was afraid. And there was no reason not to admit it.

I’ve been hearing about this Nightcrawler movie for quite a while now. After watching Prisoners, which was another film that starred Jake Gyllenhaal, I found myself really intrigued to watch this movie. My impression, due to the film’s poster, was that Gyllenhaal’s character was some creepy guy who goes around killing people. I was way off.
Instead he is what is called a “Nightcrawler”; an individual who goes to crime scenes and films those scenes before selling the gruesome footage to news channels for a good sum of cash. And that’s all the movie was about.
A young psychopath who transitions from being an unemployed thief who will kill you if you happen to have a nice watch to becoming a nightcrawler entrepreneur.
I have now seen Gyllenhaal in four different roles.

I’ve often found Qi’ra to be one of the most fascinating characters in Star Wars since I watched Solo: A Star Wars Story for the first time and understood the potential of her story.
Qi’ra, unlike most women in the Star Wars universe, lies in that grey moral area where you can’t exactly determine if she’s a villain or the “good guy.” However, Qi’ra seemed to make it very clear that she would never be the “good guy” when Han confronted her about running away together and that inspired me to want to write a fan fiction story about her consisting of three parts: QI’RA, QI’RA: A Rebel Rises, and QI’RA: The Curtain Falls.
Each story will delve into Qi’ra’s very conscience as we see her grapple with the choices she makes and the criminal world she has decided to join.
QI’RA, of course, transpires directly after Solo: A Star Wars Story ends, allowing us the chance to see her go to Maul. Ooh, I can’t wait for you to intake this story and all of its gleeful twists and turns.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while you will already know that I have previously written QI’RA and shared it, however, to understand the context of its sequel, QI’RA: A Rebel Rises, I must revisit it.
I thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy this story. Have a beautiful day.
