Whether there is any backlash or controversy, Gina Carano from The Mandalorian keeps making a name for herself by continually trending on social media. It may be because of this she has reached number two on the most famous celebrities list from IMDB.
The popular platform has an interest meter, and this week’s measurement shows that Carano’s profile has most hit this week just behind the Anya Taylor-Joy (from Queen Gambit).
This current Star Wars franchise actress-cum-former mixed martial arts athlete has gone viral due to being a recurring part and a pivotal character of The Mandalorian. On the other hand, this popularity is also due to adverse fan reactions and rage on social platforms.
It is hidden to no one that she has been sharing tweets with her strong opinions on Covid-19, anti-mask, and non-vaccine and controversial issues like Trump’s voter fraud claims and supporting the notion that there is a mislead in the election, which has resulted in anger against her wide the internet.
It’s a matter of wonder if she has become the second most popular star in the world right now because of her Mandalorian appearances, or is it because she’s being searched for continuously. Her IMDB profile is browsed in the process, thanks to the feedback she has got. She’s not alone in her fight against her reactors with garnering support from her loyal fans fighting back, and on the other side of the scale, fans in rage asking for Lucasfilm to release her. Pedro Pascal is one of the co-stars who has come to stand by her, as seen in an Instagram photo referring to Carano as “indomitable.”
Sticking to Pascal, who himself is not even far behind in the rankings of popularity meter as Mando, and so are the other famous Mandalorian actors like Ming-Na Wen (Fennec Shand) and Rosario Dawson (Ahsoka Tano). These actors have been in talks among every Star Wars enthusiast, and you can watch their excellent performance in The Mandalorian season 2, which will be coming to an end on Friday on Disney Plus. Gina Carano is sure a polarising figure currently, and it’ll be interesting to see whether she remains a part of the upcoming Star Wars projects or where she goes from here.
The High Republic Animated Series Of Star Wars Reportedly In The Works
Last year saw the Skywalker storyline reach its finish, and since then, Star Wars fans and enthusiasts all over have been wondering that what’s next for the universe and in which direction Lucasfilm is going to take it. However, there are many projects which are under production and will come out as big-screen movies; for now, the upcoming addition to the world of force, galaxies, and Jedi’s is a new multimedia endeavour, ” Star Wars: High Galaxy.”
This storyline with an entirely new projection will be two centuries before even the episode of Phantom Menace—which will be a journey through the golden era of Jedi’s, galactic republic, and force of order. The project is going to be multidimensional with multiple novellas, magazines, animated comics, audio stories. All these efforts will prove a massive step for Lucasfilm and their creative team working on this. And excitingly, it is also leaked that a brand new animated series with the same title would be a part of the project too.
It seems like the initial three episodes are being produced at Lucasfilm already. One of them has come out as – Star Wars: Bad Batch, a furtherment to the story of The Clone Wars. The remaining episodes will focus on the original project’s High Republic and its timeline, according to the project. Reportedly there was a mention of even a live-action play. Still, no firm information is available about that.
After looking at the sheer scale of production and the planning in the project, a tv show or a film would seem an obvious part of it. Even when we look at Star Wars, we remember the iconic characters, the galactic universe, weapons, and much more. These all are superb visual effects that can’t be merely achieved through just novels or comic books, and it doesn’t make sense commercially too.
But as it is with larger universes like Star Wars, that there are multiple rumors and setbacks. We should be sure of it when there’s something of an official tease. We may get to know how the Star Wars: High Republic will be released in the next few months, with its production in firm stages.
