The Mandalorian‘s Cara Dune will not be recast, contrary to previous speculation that Gina Carano would be replaced. Carano was fired from the show due to her behaviour on social media. Carano was originally slated to be part of Disney’s massive Star Wars announcements. However, all plans for the actor have been shelved in response to the controversy.
Lucasfilm fired Carano after she ignited outrage for sharing an Instagram story comparing the current U.S. political climate to Nazi Germany. The Instagram story followed other controversial social media posts published over the last several months, including tweets that questioned masks and disparaging comments about the trans community.
According to THR, Lucasfilm has no plans to recast Cara Dune. The actress is now working on a film with right-wing political commentator Ben Shapiro.
