So, this is an interesting surprise ahead of The Mandalorian‘s second season. The YouTube site Kessel Run Transmissions shared the info on an upcoming show that will expand Disney+’s ventures into the galaxy far, far away. KRT claims that a show is being developed that will focus on Gina Carano‘s Cara Dune and Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Bo-Katan. There were hints that the character will have their live-action premiere in Mandalorian‘s second season. Bo-Katan will be played by Katee Sackhoff, who also voiced the character in The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. There is no exact info provided, as they theorize if it even takes place before or after Mandalorian.
Of course, some might be questioning if this show will still be released. There has been a lot of controversy surrounding Carano‘s public opinion. KTR does highlight that they’ve first heard of this about four months ago. As such, anything can have changed with public outcry still around as we build-up to the next season’s release. They also make a good point that it might depend on how Mandalorian‘s second season is received. There have been rumors of a spin-off focused on Cara Dune but the recent drama may have derailed those original plans to some degree. There is still a chance that plans have changed, so they could also just focus on Bo-Katan, or add a new character. It is still exciting to see that Disney+ will be adding more Star Wars series in the near future.
