Gina Carano will not be returning to the Mandelorian (A Disney channel Show that I admittedly have never watched) as Cara Dune. The star of The Mandalorian is no longer employed by Lucasfilm, the company has confirmed. The news comes following recent controversial social media activity from Carano, which prompted the hashtag #FireGinaCarano to trend on Twitter. To be fair, given Walt Disney’s famously Anti-Semetic history, I bet Carano felt safe being the bigot she apparently is.
Lucasfilm released a statement saying that Gina Carano will not be brought back for future Star Wars projects. The statement notes that Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm, suggesting that her contract may not have extended beyond The Mandalorian season 2. In any event, her character Cara Dune, it seems, will not be returning. At the very least, not with Carano in the role.
The actor had been criticized for much of her social media activity in the past. Specifically, for her right-leaning political views. However, a recent post was shared, and subsequently deleted, which prompted the deluge of reactions across social media. Carano shared a post from another Instagram account that reads as follows.
“Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children. Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views.”
I don’t know girl, but I do kinow that children and the neighbors did not just randomly start beating Jewish people, they were provoked into auch actions by Adolf HBitler and his years long campaign demonizing Jewish Peoples. Kind of like what that dictator worshipper Trump has done during his disasterous 4 years as the 45th President.
Hollyood was founded by and is dominated by Jews and anything a person in the Entertainment Industry says is liable to be considered Anti-Semitic regardless of the intent behind it and risks being subjected to the judgement of the power-brokers that be.
Alongside Mando and Baby Yoda, Cara Dune had been a major part of the first two seasons of The Mandalorian. It seemed likely that the character would not only return for season 3, but in the upcoming spin-off Rangers of the New Republic as well. If that was the plan, so Lucasfilm will have to make some adjustments behind the scenes.
The Book of Boba Fett is currently in production. It was previously unclear if Gina Carano was set to star in the show but that can now be put to rest (Well, Clutch My Pearls). Why doesn’t she know that you can think these thoughts, you just can’t express them, especially in Hollywood.
Disney and Lucasfilm are currently prepping a number of spin-offs within the franchise for Disney+. The studio was encouraged to expand the scope of Star Wars on the small screen largely thanks to the success of The Mandalorian. Other projects coming down the pipeline include Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor, Ahsoka and The Acolyte. Several of the shows will be taking place in the same timeline as The Mandalorian and they will lead to an event series down the line.
