On Wednesday it was revealed that Carano has landed a part in "The Mandalorian", a new "Star Wars" spinoff series being developed by writer and director Jon Favreau.

The exact nature of the actress and former mixed martial arts (MMA) star's role in the "Star Wars" series is being kept under wraps.

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

The 10-episode first season will reportedly have a combined budget of $100 million, making each episode worth $10 million.

After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe.

Rejoice, sci-fi and fantasy fans! Game of Thrones and Narcos star Pedro Pascal will take the lead role in the new Star Wars series, The Mandalorian.

The Mandalorian is now in production for a planned 2019 release on the Disney+ streaming service. No one knows because no one has any details regarding her role. Taika Waititi, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rick Famuyiwa, and Deborah Chow have also been attached to direct episodes of the series.

Carano, whose acting credits also include Haywire and Fast & Furious 6, went 7-1 while competing in organizations like Strikeforce and EliteXC.

The series will follow a new "lone gunfighter" who is in the "outer reaches of the galaxy" beyond the reach of the New Republic. Disney announced back in March that the "Iron Man" and "Lion King" director would write and executive produce a live-action "Star Wars" TV show, the first live-action show set in a galaxy far, far away.

The Mandalorian will debut exclusively on Disney+, which is expected to launch by the end of 2019.
