It’s not officially cancelled yet, and will maybe still continue, but to me this implies that Rangers was going to heavily feature Cara Dune and that’s now been quietly thrown out of the window. It’s a shame if it really is cancelled - I was hoping the series could replace Cara (if it was ever going to feature her) with a character like Hera Syndulla.

I think it was pretty petty to fire Carano in the first place. This is why I hate Twitter.

Eh, I think it’s debatable that pettiness came into it, I think it was more a publicity thing they deemed necessary because Carano was controversial. But the Mandalorian thread rightfully got locked because of this, so I reckon we shouldn’t get into it.

What’s done is done and certainly the news that Rangers isn’t in active development should shut up the people who thought Gina Carano was getting rehired any day now.

Yeah: when you don’t think like Disney and all mainstream corporations tell you to, you become controversial. That’s also what Star Wars was about back in the 70s.

When Star Wars becomes the all powerful Empire, fans should stop defending it… (imho, of course)

When you don’t think like Disney’s consumerbase I would say. Disney itself doesn’t care. They just want profit.

Let’s not please

I also hope Rangers isn’t canceled from just Carano. There’s so much potential I’d much prefer the show to star original characters and flesh out their original stories. Include a few recognizable characters like the X-Wing Pilot from Mando, but put most of the focus on new faces.

Well, also when you say transphobic stuff when the lead actor has a trans sister, said lead actor might not want to continue being your coworker.

I agree. They clearly had some story plan that I bet could be carried over to another character. Schmara Dune, Cara Dune’s twin sister.

Then recast her, you cowards!

Agreed, I’d be fine with this. Off-putting for some I’m sure, but I like the character enough and dislike Gina Carano enough that I’d be happy to see Cara’s story continuing without her.

Got a laugh out of me!

Gina Corano does not own the character of Cara Dune.

Dune may well appear in animation.

Honestly good, because I want more animated projects.

The series opens on the planet Hoth where Cara Dune immediately gets attacked by a Wampa. In all scenes following, it’s a new actress. 😉

My homeworld is Australia so be wary of timezones!

Please the people who want Gina Carano rehired by rehiring her for the one pre-Wampa scene

If Colin Baker’s anything to go by, that’ll be a no from her, but I know you’re just joking.

So you’re saying that Cara should be recast as Sylvester McCoy in a wig?
