THE MANDALORIAN: Lucasfilm <span style="color:red">NOT</SPAN> Expected To Recast Cara Dune In The Wake Of Gina Carano Firing

Following Gina Carano's firing, fans have been wondering whether Cara Dune would be recast or if the character would simply be written out of The Mandalorian, and it looks like we now have an answer...

The recent firing of Gina Carano left Star Wars fans curious about the future of her character, and it now looks like Lucasfilm does not intend to recast the role of Cara Dune with a new actress for Season 3 of The Mandalorian and beyond.

THR's piece on the events that led to Disney/Lucasfilm severing ties with Carano originally mentioned that while Dune wasn't expected to appear in the next Disney+ Star Wars series, The Book of Boba Fett, insiders believed the character would be recast at some point "for both story and merchandising reasons."

However, they've since added the following update: "A Lucasfilm source says that the Cara Dune role on The Mandalorian is not expected to be recast."

This is somewhat surprising, as there were big plans in place for the former Rebel Shock Trooper prior to Carano's firing. Not only was Dune set for a more prominent role in Season 3 of The Mandalorian, but she was going to feature in the Rangers of the New Republic spin-off. It also recently came to light that there were plans for her to headline yet another Disney+ Star Wars show.

In related news, Hasbro has announced that there are “no current plans to create more” Cara Dune products, and Amazon already appears to have pulled most of the character's merchandise.

Earlier today, we reported on Carano's claims that she was only made aware of her firing on social media along with everyone else. You can find out more on that HERE.
