Star Wars Rebel’s Character to Replace Cara Dune in ‘Rangers of the New Republic’ Series. Star Wars fans have been curious to see how Disney+ and Lucasfilm will move forward with several Star Wars projects after Gina Carano was fired from The Mandalorian after repeatedly posting insensitive and anti-Semitic content to her social media accounts.
Now, it seems the studio’s have readjusted their plans for Rangers of the New Republic and the leading role meant to be held by Cara Dune will be replaced with a character from Star Wars: Rebels.
According to LRM, Hera Syndulla will be making her live-action debut in the upcoming Star Wars live-action series. This isn’t a far stretched choice, especially since it is rumored Ezra will be joining the congruent timeline of The Mandalorian in either Rangers of the New Republic or the Ahsoka series starring Rosario Dawson, or potentially in multiple series at some point.
Reportedly, Aladdin’s Mena Massoud has either been cast or in being eyed for the role of Ezra for the Star Wars Universe, but Lucasfilm has not confirmed the characters appearance or casting at the time of writing.
After the introduction of Bo-Katan Kryze and Ahsoka, fans of the animated Star Wars series The Clone Wars and Rebels have been eager for other beloved characters to join the fray. With Dave Filoni as one of the show runners for the live-action series, we have a feeling we won’t be waiting for long!
Are you excited to see more of the animated characters making the leap to live-action shows? Who do you want to see next? Which Star Wars projects are you eager to see? We would love to hear your thought in the comments.
