Gina Carano's ousting from Disney and Lucasfilm is still a hot subject within the Star Wars fandom months after the incident took place and while people are hopeful that Carano and her former employer will somehow be able to patch things up, it's looking quite doubtful that they will be able to make amends anytime soon especially with the way the firing was executed. It's also evident that Carano was hurt and offended by Disney's decision to remove her from the franchise and the animosity between the two parties is just too strong at this point.


However, a new rumor from YouTube user Overlord DVD claims that Gina is currently in talks with Disney to make her return to the Star Wars franchise ahead of the production start for The Mandalorian Season 3 which was originally slated to begin filming in April. According to his unidentified sources who happen to be "Hollywood agents", the two parties are currently in talks but he didn't go into detail about the supposed deal.

Of course, take this one with a huge grain of salt but it's worth mentioning that Disney had a similar issue with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn who was fired after his controversial tweets resurfaced in 2018. After a strong campaign from his fans and colleagues to have him reinstated, cooler heads would later prevail and the company would bring him back after a month.

Now, considering The Mandalorian's third season is just about to begin production, there's still plenty of time for the writers to go back to the drawing board and reincorporate Cara Dune into the fold in case the rumors about Gina returning to the Star Wars franchise are actually authentic. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Meanwhile, all seasons of The Mandalorian are available for streaming on Disney+.
