The Hollywood Reporter details the behind-the-scenes controversy that led to Carano's firing for her controversial social media posts last week. "Insiders say Cara Dune wasn’t part of the Star Wars series next up, a Boba Fett spinoff, but expect that the character will be recast down the road, for both story and merchandising reasons," says The Hollywood Reporter. "A source at Lucasfilm says that a recasting is not expected, however." The Hollywood Reporter says that in the months leading up to Disney's investor day presentation on Dec. 10, Carano's agents at UTA were negotiating for her to receive a "sizable bump" to star in her own Star Wars spinoff series. She was making between $25,000 to $50,000 per episode of The Mandalorian. But the Carano-led spinoff was never announced when Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy revealed 10 new Star Wars shows. After her firing, UTA dropped Carano. "The decision to banish Carano from the Disney kingdom went higher than Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau and was made by Lucasfilm executives," reports The Hollywood Reporter. "Carano, sources say, had repeatedly been warned by those around her about her social media behavior, with the actress even noting publicly in September that her Mandalorian co-star Pedro Pascal, who has a trans sibling, educated her about the use of pronouns after a social media flare-up."
