    I have no strong opinions on to recast or write off.
    There are a ton of quality actors who could fill the role gracefully.
    But they may just want a clean break and write in a new character.

    Anyone who associates with G+G is not good in my book.

    I think that'd be easiest.

    What we know about Dune is that she's an ex-alliance shock trooper, went on the run, ended up as an ally of Din Djarin, got involved with the government of Nevarro and the New Republic.

    I think if they just started from scratch with a new character. the biggest hurdle would be re-establishing a relationship with Djarin and the events of the series. But perhaps Bo Katan could be the catalyst for that, or even a ranger who plays investigator to Fett's upcoming shenanigans.

    Also, I think that a lot of fans have kind of a bad taste in their mouth for the character now, and revisiting that might not be the best move.

    It probably would be.
    I would make her quite a bit different than Dune. Maybe more of a brains of the operation type or along those lines to really downplay being a "replacement" then down the road as wounds heal bring in another Dune type

    Agreed. This would be the best option moving forward.

    I have a bad taste with the actress and I liked her since Haywire, but boy that went south over the last few months. So with that in mind, and use a little spiteful, I would like her recast and her role grow in Mando and Rangers.

    I don't think even that will be a hurdle.

    I think there are two separate things to consider here: there's the character who will be central to 'Rangers Of The New Republic', and the character who Din Djaran has a relationship with. They don't have to be the same person.

    So Rangers Of The New Republic can absolutely start afresh with all new characters we never saw before, who can be established within that story just like any new series does. Then somebody new can be introduced in the future series of The Mandalorian, if such a person is needed at all.

    A general audience who hasn't been paying attention to all the Star Wars news would probably not even notice anything was amiss!

    At this point I am so perturbed by the whole thing I don't want a recast at all.

    Like I said on my profile page, I think Iden Versio would be a brilliant choice to fill in Cara Dune’s role if LFL doesn’t want to go down the recast route. Both of them are strong, female soldiers of the New Republic and she also has the former-Imperial thing going on so that can lead to some interesting character interactions:
    • She can relate to Din Djarin because she was once an ardent follower of the Empire; the same way Din has been struggling with his Creed. She would also be having a child somewhere in the near future, while Din is probably experiencing empty nest symbol with his own.
    • There could be conflict between her and Bo Katan, because of Bo’s hatred for the Empire and Iden wasn’t just part of the Empire; she was one of its top soldiers and the daughter to a prominent Navy Admiral.
    • There could be an interesting interaction between Iden and Luke, since her husband met him once and completely changed his philosophy as a result.
    • She could bond with Mayfeld over their checkered pasts in the Empire and roles in Operation Cinder.
    If Cara is recast and comes back into the fold, it could be interesting to see a rivalry between her and Iden. Cara was pretty peeved at Kuiil for being a slave to the Empire; imagine how ticked she’d be to have a former Special Agents soldier wearing the same New Republic symbol.

    Sidenote, but I don’t like seeing the Cantina getting as heated as it has in the last few pages of this thread, so I offer everyone a Grogu gif as a peace offering:

    Same for me. Initially I wanted a recast, but now I'm surprisingly neutral about it. I could see it going either way at this point. Because on one hand, I do like Cara's character a lot. But as others have pointed out, she doesn't seem essential to the future of the series either.

    Just move on. I can't think of a good reason for Cara ever being mentioned again in the show.

    Or, "she had a perfectly completed arc :mad:" as the cool kids say these days. ;)

    Agreed i have my criticisms of The Fandom Menace but as someone who has been watching them from the very beginning they are not the villains the media portrays them as and they get a lot of undeserved hate.
