Gina Carano’s gone from Lucasfilm and thus, The Mandalorian. And with her, so too have we seen the last of Cara Dune. There had been a report from THR the role could be recast for season 3 and other Star Wars spinoffs, if for no other reason than for merchandising. IndieWire checked with a Disney rep who says that won’t be the case, and now THR has changed their initial reporting.
“A Lucasfilm source says that the Cara Dune role on ‘The Mandalorian’ is not expected to be recast and that she was not part of the Dec. 10 presentation, nor was she engaged in negotiations for future work.”
The “Dec. 10 presentation” is referring to the Investor Conference in which a slew of Star Wars projects were announced, including one titled Rangers of the New Republic that Cara Dune was expected to be a part of. But as we were previously told, Disney had already begun to sour on her because of months of controversial statements. Not only had they made the decision not to pick up the option on her contract, but even the Cara Dune action figures are canceled. Damn. That’s when you know it’s over, when Disney decided they don’t even want to make money off of your likeness anymore.
