As it currently stands, the role of Cara Dune will be in The Mandalorian not re-cast after Gina Carano was fired; at least not immediately. A new report from The Hollywood Reporter According to the expanding Star Wars universe on Disney +, Dune doesn’t have to worry about it yet, as she isn’t for the next series The Book of Boba Fett was intended. This spin-off, which Robert Rodriguez can boast as one of the executive producers alongside Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, is slated for the third season of The Mandalorian be turned off.
Still, the studio has to think of something to do justice to the story of Cara Dune, an ex-rebel shock trooper from Alderaan who has proven to be a valuable companion for the eponymous bounty hunter of the main series, Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) . Nothing is certain yet, but THR gives conflicting outlooks on the situation as “insiders” claim that Carano will be replaced in the long run, while “a source at Lucasfilm states that a replacement is not expected”.
The latter would imply that they might be killed off-screen, or that their role might simply be written off to another part of the galaxy.
Carano was fired last week following a controversial Instagram post comparing Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. Plans for a Cara Dune spin-off were promptly brushed aside, the actress dropped from her talent agency and just yesterday Hasbro confirmed that action figures would no longer be made based on her role. According to THR, that was just the metaphorical drop that made the Bacta tank overflow. Over the past year, Carano has found himself repeatedly under fire for controversial tweets about the pandemic and the 2020 presidential election.
“I don’t know what the people of Disney personally believe or disbelieve about politics, but as a group of companies they should stay out of trouble as much as possible. And everything that offends the left is a problem, ”said Juda Engelmayer, crisis PR reputation manager, the paper. “I have clients who go to extraordinary lengths to post what the social left wants to read.”
In addition to The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett Disney + is developing several other real-life and animation projects set in the galaxy far, far away, including series such as Rangers of the New Republic and Ahsoka. Before Carano left the Star Wars universe, Dune, newly appointed Marshal of the New Republic, was expected to be in Rangers would occur. Various of the real film projects should ultimately become a large-scale crossover event in the style of Endgame be merged in the MCU.
