The “Star Wars” spinoff project “Rangers of the New Republic” is reportedly no longer in active development, according to Variety.

  • No reason was given for why the show has been put on hiatus.
  • It’s also unclear how long the show will pause its active development, or when Lucasfilm might add it back into development.

What is ‘Rangers of the New Republic’ about?

Lucasfilm announced “Rangers of the New Republic” back on Disney Investory Day 2020. The show was set to be another Disney+ installment in the “Star Wars” expanded universe with Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau at the helm.

Per CBR, there was talk that “Rangers of the New Republic” would cross over with “The Mandalorian” and the upcoming “Ahsoka” series for a ”climatic story event.”

When would ‘Rangers of the New Republic’ take place?

Both of those series will take place after the events of “Return of the Jedi,” similar to “The Mandalorian.”

Favreau told “Good Morning America” that he chose that specific timeline for a reason.

  • “That was a film that we all grew up with. I was an usher in the movie theater back in Queens when ‘Return of the Jedi’ was playing so I saw that movie dozens and dozens of times at work and now it’s so fun to be continuing the story after that with some of those characters,” Favreau said.

Is this because of Gina Carano?

There was speculation that Gina Carano, who played Cara Dune on “The Mandalorian,” would get her own “Star Wars” show. But due to social media backlash, she was fired by Lucasfilm and the “Star Wars” franchise.

  • A report from The Hollywood Reporter suggested “Rangers of the New Republic” would be a potential spinoff for her.
  • However, Deadline reported that there was no deal for Carano to appear in “Rangers of the New Republic.”
