Gina Carano Reveals She Found Out She Was Fired From 'The Mandalorian' on Social Media

Gina Carano just revealed that she learned she was fired from Disney+‘s The Mandalorian at the same time as everyone else – when the news broke and spread via social media.

If you missed the news, she was fired from the show last week after a social media post compared being a conservative in modern America to being Jewish in Nazi Germany.

Carano gave statements to New York Times writer Bari Weiss, which were then posted on the writer’s Substack page.

“Earlier on last year before The Mandalorian came out, they wanted me to use their exact wording for an apology over pronoun usage. I declined and offered a statement in my own words. I made clear I wanted nothing to do with mocking the transgender community, and was just drawing attention to the abuse of the mob in forcing people to put pronouns in their bio,” Gina said in a statement.

She continued, adding that Disney then said she would be excluded from all press for season two. “That was heart-breaking, but I didn’t want to take away from the hard work of everyone who worked on the project, so I said ok. That was the last time I was contacted about any type of public statement or apology from Lucasfilm. I found out through social media, like everyone else, that I had been fired.”

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.

Fans Want Lucy Lawless To Take Over Role of Cara Dune After Gina Carano's Firing

Hours after it was announced that Gina Carano would no longer be part of The Mandalorian and Star Wars franchise, fans have picked their favorite to take over her role – Lucy Lawless.

Carasynthia “Cara” Dune is a former Rebel shock trooper turned mercenary in the popular Disney+ series, who eventually becomes a marshal for the New Republic.

While Gina originated the part, fans on social media are adamant that Lucy would be an even better actor for the role.

Star Wars fans are also suggesting that the franchise write an entirely new character just for Lucy as well.

“I’m 100% on board with @RealLucyLawless joining The SWU! She would be amazing!” one fan wrote in support of the suggestion. “I think I’d rather her be her own new character, though. Let Cara Dune just fade from existence. How about it @Jon_Favreau and @dave_filoni?

Another fan added, “The only acceptable answer to who should now play Cara Dune is Lucy Lawless.”
