Gina Carano has joined Pedro Pascal in the live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian.
The series is debuting on Disney+, Disney’s streaming service that is set for next year.
Jon Favreau wrote the series and is exec producing along with Kathleen Kennedy, Colin Wilson and Dave Filoni. Filoni is also directing episodes along with Taika Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa and Deborah Chow.
Character details are buried deep in the desert wastes of Tatooine but the company’s synopsis is thus: “After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.”
Carano is the MMA star-turned-action star who starred in Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire and appeared in Fast & Furious 6 and Deadpool. She is repped by Gersh, The Syndicate and Ziffren Brittenham.
