Who is the mystery character in The Mandalorian?


Mandalorian mystery character

A mystery character has appeared in the artwork of The Mandalorian on Disney+. But who is it?

Another week, and once more, Disney+ show The Mandalorian's hype train rolls on. Many felt that episode three was the most exciting episode to date, and fans have been throwing tantrums online because they have to wait a week for the next episode.

Though with the revelation of a new mystery character, the wait may be worth it for Chapter IV.

A female character has shown up in the background of The Mandalorian artwork on Disney+. Appearing behind the bounty hunter is a woman with a gun. So who is she?

She appears in lockstep with Mando, which seems to suggest she's an ally, but we can't be sure. What we do know is that the character is played by actress and ex-MMA fighter Gina Carano. We also know that the mystery character's name is Cara Dune.

What we know beyond that is pretty limited. Understandably, the Star Wars team is doing everything it can to keep things under wraps. So after we dug through the web looking through all the Star Wars archives we could find, this was the best we could do.

Wookieepedia lists Dune as once a shock trooper in the Alliance to Restore the Republic at the time of the Galactic Civil War. We believe Cara Dune's character is a soldier turned mercenary, so maybe she won't necessarily be a friend of the Mandalorian.

The Mandalorian more popular than Stranger Things

This week, The Mandalorian outranked hit Netflix series Stranger Things as the most in-demand original streaming show in the US, according to Parrot Analytics. That's huge news for the Mouse House, but maybe not such a surprise, given that it's also Disney+'s most popular show.

It's definitely a gut punch to Netflix, as Stranger Things held a 21-week reign at the top of the list.

Parrot Analytics reported that over the last week in the US, The Mandalorian had over 100 million "demand expressions" versus Stranger Things' 81 million.

We're almost sure this has something to do with the fact that the series is a top quality product, but it could just be down to the inclusion of Baby Yoda...

More Star Wars coming to Disney+

Launching late in the year Disney+ is set for a more eventful 2020. Star Wars fans are set to benefit with even more TV series in the works. Dedicated shows are being worked on for Obi-Wan Kenobi, Cassian Andor and even a game show Jedi Temple Challenge.
