The producers of The Mandalorian explain how they will approach the “firing” of Gina Carano in the new season of the Star Wars series

Today is the day marked on the calendar for millions of fans of Star Wars around the world: the third season of The Mandalorian opens in Disney+ promising to make us travel once more through a galaxy far, far away together with Grogu and Din Djarin. The return of the Lucasfilm show, however, will have to face the departure of one of its most prominent actresses, Gina Carano.

We put you in context. Lucasfilm decided a couple of years ago not to have the actress and former American mixed martial arts fighter after meeting several messages where people were denigrated because of their cultural and religious identities. However, Carano had a fairly prominent role in The Mandalorian as dune face, and was about to star in his own spin off. Will the character exit be completely ignored? Answer Rick Famuyiwa:

“Cara is and continues to be an important part of the world of Star Wars. Her departure had to be approached from a creative point of view, and [Jon Favreau] he took enough time to think about it. It was something we discussed because we knew it was going to have an impact on the show.But at the same time what’s been at the heart of the show has been two characters, Din Djarin and Grogu, so in the end it felt like I was subservient to them and around the rest of the Mandalorians.”

Naturally, Dave Filoni notes, “Star Wars is a huge galaxy, and a lot of characters are fighting for screen time.” “We’ll just have to see as the season unfolds what the adventures are, but He’s a great character, someone who was vital to the early days of Din Djarin. We’ll see if he’s evolved beyond that.“Added the screenwriter without giving further details.

Having said that, the third season of The Mandalorian will be more focused on Mandalore, so perhaps Cara Dune had no space regardless of her job destination. “[Hay] different characters he has met since Bo-Katan [que] They take a lot more prominence, which makes sense where his arc is going, the story of him and Grogu specifically,” Dave Filoni explained.
