The fourth episode of Star Wars: The Mandalorian dropped on Disney+ yesterday and featured the debut of Gina Carano as Cara Dune, the first woman to become a major player in the series. Dune is a former Imperial Shock Trooper who abandoned the Empire after the destruction of the second Death Star and has been on the run from her former allies. The episode, “Sanctuary,” saw the Mandalorian teaming up with Dune to help a fishing village that was being overrun by Klatooinian raiders. Carano took to Instagram to celebrate her Star Wars debut in the episode, which was directed by Bryce Dallas Howard.
“Who’s watching @themandalorian episode 4 directed by @brycedhoward today On @disneyplus Ya know.. before you go shopping on Black Friday and get all stressed out 😂 why not stay out of the hussle, sit back relax and meet #CaraDune 💋 May the force be with you. 💫,” Carano wrote.
