Gina Carano is no longer part of the Star Wars universe. Lucasfilm fired the actress after an anti-Semitic Instagram post. The former MMA fighter has also been dropped by her agency. But what happens now to Cara Dune, the star warrior who embodied Carano in The Mandalorian?
Lucasfilm has three options:
Star Wars fans want Lucy Lawless as Cara Dune

Where does the enthusiasm for Lucy Lawless come from?
A look at their filmography gives an unequivocal answer. The New Zealand actress became famous for playing Xena in the adventure series of the same name from the 1990s. In a sense, the fearless war princess could be seen as one of Cara Dune's cinematic role models.
Even after that, Lucy Lawless asserted herself as an action and fantasy icon. Most recently, she fought her way through three seasons of the horror series Ash vs Evil Dead with Bruce Campbell and took up the fight with dangerous demons. Lucy Lawless as Caran Dune - this idea is no coincidence.
Star Wars: Cara Dune's future apart from The Mandalorian
It is no secret that Lucasfilm had big plans for Cara Dune before Gina Carano catapulted herself into the end with her questionable remarks. The character could have appeared in three upcoming Star Wars projects.
Especially the Stream planet season of The Mandalorian was full of indications that further plans existed for Cara Dune. As a survivor of Alderaan, she has an exciting background - especially in the context of the New Republic, for which she recently worked as marshal on Nevarro. There is still a lot of potential for expansion hidden here.
