At the conclusion of The Mandalorian season two, Lucasfilm and The Walt Disney Company announced that they would be parting ways with Gina Carano after a series of controversial Tweets lead to various internet wars.
As a result, every Star Wars fan is left wondering what happened to Cara Dune?
Gina Carano’s Star Wars Show Scrapped
Before the departure of Carano, Lucasfilm announced a spin-off series for the actresses’ character: Rangers of the New Republic.
Now, Ranger Cara Dune is either off an her own adventure throughout the galaxy far, far away, or something even worse: dead.
Not to state that Lucasfilm would kill off Dune, but the ex-Rebellion shock trooper is either on an off-screen mission, eliminating the need of Gina Carano reprising her role, or was lost in battle as Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) continued to advance Nevarro.
With Rangers of the New Republic officially off the shelf, showrunner Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni are moving forward with the upcoming Ahsoka show, starring Rosario Dawson as the titular character and characters from Star Wars: Rebels.
