The Mandalorian‘s Gina Carano made headlines on various entertainment news platforms throughout the second season of Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni’s hit Star Wars series.
The actress, who is known for her sometimes controversial Tweets regarding political and social issues, has sparked a number of trending social media hashtag campaigns on both sides of the aisle. As a matter of fact, Twitter users have created a variety of hashtags specifically related to the former women’s MMA fighter who spent her high school years in Las Vegas.
#FireGinaCarano has been directed at Walt Disney Company officials on multiple occasions — most recently amid the political riots at the United States Capitol Building in Washington D.C. — but #IStandWithGinaCarano and #WeLoveCaraDune have also trended at various points in recent weeks.
Throughout all of this online strife, however, Carano has also used her platform to connect with fans and with those who love her Mandalorian character, New Republic Marshal Cara Dune. Most recently, she re-Tweeted a post featuring a number of women dressed in impressive Cara Dune cosplay outfits.
Clearly impressed, Carano wrote:
How incredible is this?!

What’s next for Gina Carano?
Although Gina Carano’s future with The Mandalorian saga has not been officially confirmed by Lucasfilm or Disney, many Star Wars fans are currently operating under the assumption that Cara Dune’s adventures as a Marshal on Nevarro will be the focus of upcoming Mandalorian spinoff series, Rangers of the New Republic.
The series is one of three Mandalorian spinoffs that creator and showrunner Jon Favreau and executive producer Dave Filoni are working on. The other two shows, Ahsoka and The Book of Boba Fett, will include other familiar characters from the Star Wars galaxy.
Ahsoka will showcase Rosario Dawson reprising her role as the Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars: The Clone Wars fan-favorite character as she searches for Grand Admiral Thrawn (rumored to be played in live-action by Robert Downey, Jr.) and Jedi Ezra Bridger (rumored to be played in live-action by Taylor Gray).
