Wamandalorian?

I’ve been advising those who are happy over the casting of Pedro Pascal, to exhibit some caution, as Pedro may be just one of many leads, rather than the title character.

Now comes word that Gina Carano has joined the casting for The Mandalorian. The Hollywood Reporter tells us:

Gina Carano has joined Pedro Pascal in the live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian.

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.” 

Pay particular note to how the official synopsis does not contain any “gender biased” pronouns.

Why is this relevant to my previous warnings?

Because Gina Carano is a former featherweight MMA fighter turned movie action star, who is known for her muscular phsyique.

Compare and contrast.

It should also be noted here that THR stated that Pascal was “still in negotiations,” while also stating that Carano has “joined.”

So who was in the publicity still that was put out in early October?  The one who is still in negotiations, or the one who has already joined?

Because Pedro Pascal is still in negotiations, as the Hollywood Reported:

Sources confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the actor is in negotiations to star in Jon Favreau’s Star Wars series The Mandalorian, which is set to debut next year on Disney+.

Also, consider the following question.  Lucasfilm has already annouced a series based on Cassian Andor.   So what are the chances that today’s “gender equality” obsessed Lucasfilm would allow two live action series that both focus on a male lead?

  1. Seriously, Itchy. Please get this through your skull and I say this because I care: GINA CARANO WILL NOT BE THE MANDALORIAN. PEDRO PASCAL WILL BE.

    If she was The Mandalorian, her helmet would look like THIS (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Nite_Owl_helmet), not this (https://m.imgur.com/gallery/yt0Ez). It’s not rocket science. It’s that simple. One helmet is different than the other and it proves who would be the Mandalorian. It’s there. It’s plain. It’s simple. That’s the way of life. It’s not a lot but, it’s life. AHAHAHAHAHAHA.

    • Great combo. Garbage tier character cast with garbage tier actress. That screams “success”. Would fit straight into Lucasfilm and Hollywood.

    • Be happy. No matter who plays the lead, there MUST be a strong effective and smart fighting wahman protagonist or second fiddle in the series. Lucasfilm will demand it.

  2. Poor Pascal, he has to carry this crap all by himself. Carano can’t act her way out of a cardboard box.

    Then add the super cheap production value they’re going for. Outer Rim won’t require anything fancy, they can film on the same locations all the other cheap garbage films. They will be able to compete with The Outpost for the title of utter rubbish.

  3. That publicity shot is definitely not Gina, she’s got much wider hips and the hands are a giveaway that it’s a man, likely a ‘man of color’. I’m calling man – with Solo I could tell that Enfys Nest was a female when they were denying it in their official publicity, but this one looks to be a man.

    I lean strongly towards a parallel theory, that they’re casting Carano as an invincible white brunette woman who will kick the absolute shit out of the Mandalorian, or save him from a kicking, and then take charge of proceedings.

    I mean every damn Disney Star Wars film is that same story told over and over, if you look at them. They are all basically just the narcissistic power fantasies of Kathleen Kennedy, looping over and over with different cardboard plots and settings, like a masturbatory feminist fever dream.

      • Actually having had a closer look at the hands, you’re right – they could be baggy/trick gloves. With the hips/thighs though, Gina’s a big girl – the photo you have is when she’s in competition shape after a grueling diet, normally she’s carrying a lot more weight around.

        Here you can see what she looks like when not on a competition diet: http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/season-1-pictured-gina-carrano-as-crush-photo-by-mitchell-haasethnbcu-picture-id140847959

        and compared to a bigger version of the Mandalorian:

        So it’s not impossible, the image isn’t too clear around the thighs, but I think it’ll be tricky to hide her figure, it’s quite voluptuous and womanly. If it’s her, they’ve done a much better job than they did with Enfys Nest. But my money’s on her being the obligatory Invincible Brunette.

        And I did outguess both you and EVS on Solo! You had Qi’Ra being Enfys Nest I remember, EVS had some mad theory about it being an old lady. I had it being a ‘random redheaded girl model’, which was close enough.

        • I don’t think it would be that hard to hide her figure. Chances are she like many other actors would be on a diet and excercise regiment girl this role. Her chest is small enough to be either taped down or put inside of an empty cavity inside of that breast plate. Her sides don’t go in very much to form that hourglass shape, so all it would take to hide that is an off white padded pull over.
