Gina Carano On The Mandalorian’s Surprises
So, Gina Carano sat with Drunk 3Po and talked about the experience when she first found out about Luke Skywalker arriving towards the end of the second season of The Mandalorian. Gina went on to say that she started finding out about the cameo during the makeup trailer and when she saw Max Lloyd-Jones, who played Luke Skywalker instead of Mark Hamill making his moves on the screen, the actor reminisced going “Oh wait? Who’s that?”. Gina Carano stated that the scene wasn’t in the scripts and how everyone who works on the set is a huge Star Wars fan with all the shirts and everything at the moment was pretty much shocking for them and how everyone started whispering all at once.
After mentioning the reaction, Gina explained how the actors were required to big black cloaks to reduce someone taking a picture of their costumes while traveling from studio to studio and leaking the spoilers. Gina also revealed one of the factors the secret managed to stay was the scripts as the actors only get the part of scripts where their character has to fill in. Gina stated that the names are thus printed in on the scripts, so nothing gets out, and in that case, even she might hold a lot of secrets. Gina Carano said that even she is a big fan of surprises herself and loves watching people getting surprised and thus managed to keep it in, or else she would have already lost her job from Lucasfilms.
Furthermore, in the interview, Gina Carano talked about her character and shared how it is still unclear what part Cara Dune will play for season 3 of Star Wars spin-off The Mandalorian. She explained how filling the shoes of the character was a big responsibility for her the moment she walked into the studios and further revealed that these kinds of surprises are what fans love and why wouldn’t anyone love more coming in thus, teasing that there will be more to come in the coming third season of The Mandalorian and all the spin-offs announced by Disney Plus.

What To Expect Next After The Mandalorian Season 2?
The second season of The Mandolarian ended on a high note, with lots of fans tunning in to see Luke Skywalker returning and the Book of Boba Fett’s announcement towards the end in the post-credit scene. The question revolving around season 3 will control the Dark saber, and Baby Yoda returns to continue his training with Mando. Definitely, Baby Yoda will be seen coming back but let’s not get our hopes high on Luke Skywalker as there are pretty low chances of watching him adore the screen once again any time soon. The Mandalorian is set to deal with the rise of the Empire as Grand Admiral Thrawn is still alive with Ahsoka Tano hunting him and Bo-Katan on her verge to grab the throne of Mandalore once again. On the other hand, fans are also expecting to see more revelations about Baby Yoda’s blood, which is instrumental for the Empire.
The update for the third season of The Mandalorian is still not revealed yet, but it is speculated to happen after The Book of Boba Fett arrives at Disney Plus in late 2021. So we can expect season three of The Mandalorian to arrive somewhere in 2022. There are other spin-offs for The Mandalorian as planned by Disney Plus, including series based on Ahsoka and a series titled Star Wars: Rangers of the New Republic.
