Disney+ Had Plans for Gina Carano 'Mandalorian' Spinoff, Scrapped Plans After November 2020 Tweets (Report)

Gina Carano was fired from Disney+‘s The Mandalorian this week after a social media post compared being a conservative in modern America to being Jewish in Nazi Germany.

But, according to a source who spoke with THR, they have wanted to fire her for two months after two specific tweets she sent out in November of 2020.

“They have been looking for a reason to fire her for two months, and today was the final straw,” a source with knowledge of the situation told THR.

First, after the 2020 Election, Gina tweeted about believing there was voter fraud in the election of President Joe Biden, which has been repeatedly debunked. She also tweeted an anti-mask sentiment in November of 2020. Masks are being used amid the Coronavirus pandemic to slow the spread and keep everyone as safe as possible amid a deadly virus.

THR added that Disney+ had actually planned to have her star in a spinoff series, portraying her fan favorite character, former Rebel Alliance soldier Cara Dune. The intention was to announce this spinoff in December of 2020, but plans were scrapped after she sent out those tweets weeks earlier.

Find out which 12 other actors were fired from their television shows.
