Gina‘s role is not yet known.

Jon has said that the series will take place “after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. It will follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.”

The first episode will be directed by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars). Taika Waititi, Rick Famuyiwa, Deborah Chow, and Bryce Dallas Howard will also direct.
