The dismissal of actress Gina Carano by Disney and Lucasfilm caused quite a stir earlier this year. Carano had previously attracted attention several times through controversial statements in several social media channels. That ultimately led to her being fired and therefore definitely no longer to be seen as Cara Dune in Season 3 of Star Wars: The Mandalorian. But this dismissal not only has an impact on Disney's further series plans, but also on the merchandise business.

As you can read in the "dis.pop" Instagram channel, the production of Cara Dune's Funko-Pop figures has been discontinued with immediate effect. Copies that have already been ordered will therefore no longer be delivered. In an email from the customer service of the retailer Entertainment Earth it says:

"Unfortunately, we have to announce that the manufacturer has advised us that we will not receive any further shipments of the Star Wars: The Mandalorian Cara Dune Pop! Vinyl Figure (Item FU42065) that you have ordered. Production has been discontinued. The manufacturer did not give us any further information as to why this happened. "

Accordingly, the manufacturer has not disclosed any further details about the background that led to the cessation of production. But given the recent events surrounding actress Gina Carano, the explanation should be obvious. So if you still have a copy of this figure, you should take good care of it.
