‘The Mandalorian’: Gina Carano Joins Cast Of Disney+’s ‘Star Wars’ Series

‘The Mandalorian’: Gina Carano Joins Cast Of Disney+’s ‘Star Wars’ Series

It'd been rumored for a few months (courtesy of the Carl Weathers enthusiasts at "Making Star Wars") but now it's official: Narcos and Game of Thrones player Pedro Pascal is going to be the lead of Jon Favreau's Star Wars series, The Mandalorian on Disney+.

The Mandalorian is the first live-action series set in the Star Wars universe.




The article implies he'll play the title character, "a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic". Carano's role is under wraps.

Carano, the former MMA fighter, has kicked in the door of films including Fast & Furious 6 and Deadpool since getting her start on the screen starring in Steven Soderbergh's Haywire. The 8-episode season will feature five directors including Dave Filoni, Howard, Waititi, Rick Famuyiwa and Deborah Chow with Favreau writing and executive producing. Earlier this month, ILM confirmed that it would be crafting the visual effects for the series. "We are seeing a real convergence in our creative approach used on films and in our immersive entertainment division ILMxLAB, and now we're proud to be able to offer these ILM innovations in a way that's suitable for streaming and television work to creatives around the world". The other, a Rogue One prequel series, stars Diego Luna reprising his role as Cassian Andor. What do you want to see in this Star Wars TV spinoff? But as is often the case with Star Wars-related content, the production is keeping a tight lid on this one and we don't have any information about what character Carano will be playing.
