'Mandalorian' Fans Are Begging Disney To Recast Gina Carano's Role With Lucy Lawless, And Hell Yes

Lucasfilm/Disney+; NBCUniversal

The Gina Carano saga continues.

After Lucasfilm and Disney+ revealed they fired Gina Carano from her role in The Mandalorian for her "abhorrent" social media posts, the fate of Carano's character, Cara Dune, remains uncertain.

Dune was going to possibly be the center of several spin-off shows as well as being carried through season 3 of The Mandalorian. While Lucasfilm has not officially announced whether Dune will be re-cast or written out of the Star Wars universe completely, fans have another idea in mind.

And it's a brilliant one.

Lucy Lawless, who is best known for her run as Xena in the 90s hit television series Xena, Warrior Princess, immediately came to mind.

Now fans are all on board.





The New Zealand actress has had a steady career since Xena ended in 2001, appearing in everything from the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica to Ash Vs. Evil Dead.





Lawless herself weighed in on Dune's role becoming "open" for her in the show.

God's Not Dead is a trio of films depicting a supposed anti-Christian agenda in the United States and have been called a "persecution complex" by media like Vox.

"The thesis of the God's Not Dead series is that Christians and Christianity are under attack in America, and that the way to fight back is through exercising First Amendment rights, mostly in educational settings...The problem isn't really the production value (which is mostly fine), or even the statement in the title, a contradiction of a willful misreading of Nietzsche that's so generic and bland that few people would find it offensive."

The themes of the film echo the far-right's problem with Gina Carano being fired from The Mandalorian.




Lucy Lawless, though a wonderful suggestion, isn't the only one fans have floated.

Some have suggested Once Upon A Time's Lana Parilla and The Flight Attendant and Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina's Michelle Gomez as possible replacements.

This is one time we hope Disney listens to its fans.
