Rangers Of The New Republic: Scripts Were Never Written For The Star Wars Show

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy breaks the silence on Star Wars: Rangers of the New Republic and says the scripts weren’t even written.

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy confirms that the Star Wars: New Republic Rangers the series didn’t even have written scripts. Announced in December 2020, New Republic Rangers was to serve as a derivative of The mandalorian and many suppose that it would follow the adventures of Cara Dune (Gina Carano). According to Kennedy, the series would be produced by Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau and would eventually converge and culminate in a major crossover between The mandalorian, The Boba Fett Book, and Ahsoka.

However, just several months after the series was announced, Gina Carano was fired from her contract with Lucasfilm for her controversial social media posts comparing the political situation in the US to that of Nazi Germany. It was also confirmed that Carano did not appear in any of Disney’s upcoming projects and that Dune’s character would not be recast. Since Carano’s firing, Lucasfilm has been radio-silent about the state of New Republic Rangers, and the only official news came in May, claiming that the program was not in active development.

In a new interview with Empire (according Comic book), Kennedy finally addressed the state of New Republic Rangers and apparently confirmed that the show is actually dead in the water. Of the series, Kennedy says simply:

«We had never written any scripts or anything about it.. «

While it was announced in May that the series was not in active development, it could still have been on the back burner and something Lucasfilm and Disney were planning to revisit. Now with Kennedy’s comments, New Republic Rangers it is almost certainly canceled. Scripts for series in development go through many rounds of notes long before the programs reach the camera; scripts for him Obi Wan The series were reworked for months before the show began production. This signifies the timeline of the planned completion of The Mandalorian, Ahsoka, and boba fat would undoubtedly be discarded even if New Republic Rangers Work started on the scripts right away.

Although there was never an official word that Carano’s Dune was going to be the central character in New Republic Rangers, the timeline in terms of his firing, and the new revelation that the show’s scripts were never completed lends more credence to the idea that Carano is one of the main reasons the show was canceled. It is very possible that there are other factors that led to work on the series to hit a wall, but considering The mandalorian, boba fat, and Ahsoka Now it has been confirmed that they are all in various stages of development, it certainly seems likely that Carano is the main reason. Regardless of why New Republic Rangers It doesn’t move forward though, fans will still have plenty of Star Wars content to consume in the coming months with The Boba Fett Book scheduled to premiere on December 29.
