The Mandalorian Season 3 Premiere Reveals What Happens to Cara Dune

The following article contains Spoilers for Season 3: Episode 1 of the Mandalorian.

Season 3 of The Mandalorian arrived on Disney+ and quickly addressed Gina Carano’s character of Cara Dune within minutes of Mando’s arrival on Nevarro. You might recall that after appearing in seasons 1 and 2 of The Mandalorian, Gina Carano was essentially fired from the show due to her controversial behaviors on social media. Carano’s release from the show left a gaping hole in the continued narrative of her character Cara Dune, who played prominent in the Star Wars universe.

So how did Jon Favreau explain the disappearance of the newly minted Marshall from Nevarro? In the season 3 premiere episode, called “Chapter 17: The Apostate,” Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) talks with Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) about the open position of Marshall. Greef informs Mando that Dune has taken a position with the special forces of the New Republic after having captured Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) back in season 2.

Lucasfilm was developing a series specifically for Cara Dune with Rangers of the New Republic before her exit from the show. Executive Producer Rick Famuyiwa told Deadline ahead of the season 3 premiere that they would address Cara Dune specifically since she was a big part of the show. He stated, “Cara was a big part and continues as a character to be part of the world. It had to be addressed in the creative and [Jon Favreau] took the time to think about that.”

So while the Cara Dune lives on, she will no longer play a role in the Mandoverse. Do you think that her character received a respectable sendoff? Would you like the see this role recast with another actor? Please let us know what you think in a comment.
