Due to recent events, there has been a question how to proceed with the Rebel Legion’s acceptance of the Season 1 and Season 2 Cara Dune costumes from The Mandalorian.

I have discussed it with my team and the Legion Command.
The character of Cara Dune is very much a Rebel Legion character, and as such, we will continue to accept the Cara Dune costume.

May The Force Be With You, Always!!

Thank you for this clarification. I didn't even consider the Legion would no longer accept Cara costumes, though I did wonder about a statement clarifying the situation (and/or one regarding not supporting some of the actor's views, but that gets trickier). And here we are.

I have struggled with what to do about the situation for a while. For now, I think I am comfortable still wearing the costume. The most recent events regarding the situation make me more comfortable with this decision. But it is still a little hard for me, and we shall see if things change later.

I don't think it is a stretch for people to separate the character from the actress, so I think this is a good decision and the right decision.

This is good news. The character of Cara Dune was one that become popular very quickly. It would be a same for those who wear that costume to have to retire it.
