In recent days we have learned the news that Gina Carano, interpreter in The Mandalorian di Cara Dune, was officially fired from Lucasfilm following the disparaging posts published by the same actress, and former mixed martial arts fighter, in which she compared the current American republic to being Jewish in the period of the Holocaust. Predictably, the comments literally inflamed the web, leading fans of the highly acclaimed Disney + TV series to create more than just the hashtag #FireGinaCarano, but to loudly demand the recasting of the character, with Lucy Lawless, actress who played in the 90s Xena (the iconic warrior princess), as her replacement.
As fans note, the New Zealand actress and singer would be perfect to play the character of Cara Dune, also given the great resemblance to Carano. Although the presence of the former rebel in season 3 of The Mandalorian has not yet been confirmed, it is very likely that The Walt Disney Company and Lucasfilm initially intended to further delve into the lore of the highly regarded Star Wars character, enough to dedicate a series to him. spin off (Rangers of the New Republic). It is unclear when the production will debut on the Mickey Mouse house streaming platform, but this will follow the same timeline as The Mandalorian and will be developed and created by Jon Favreau e Dave Filoni..
Waiting to find out more details on the story, at the moment we do not know if the house of Mickey Mouse and Lucasfilm will decide to recast the character, and consequently if it will really be Lucy Lawless to assume the role of the former rebel assault soldier, or if they make the arduous decision to cancel it altogether.

Instead of #canceldisneyplus, can they just cast Lucy Lawless as Cara Dune and pretend it was her the whole time? pic.twitter.com/sOvrouGv05

I'm 100% on board with @RealLucyLawless joining The SWU! She would be amazing! I think I'd rather her be her own new character, though. Let Cara Dune just fade from existence. How about it @Jon_Favreau and @dave_filoni? #LucyLawlessInStarWars
