    In a breaking news development, io9 is reporting that a Lucasfilm representative has confirmed to them that Gina Carano is no longer employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to return to Star Wars again, including her role on The Mandalorian.



    This is the statement by the unnamed Lucasfilm representative, from the exclusive report by io9:



    They do not specify when Carano was let go or list why, but we can safely assume this has to do with the abhorrent comments and posts the actor and former MMA fighter has been making on social media dating back to last year, which seemed to keep getting more dangerous and hateful as time went on, most recently capped off by an anti-Semitic story she posted on her Instagram feed.



    The Hollywood Reporter said sources claim Carano was supposed to be revealed as the star of one of The Mandalorian spinoff shows at the December Disney Investors Webcast, but Lucasfilm scrapped those plans in the wake of her behavior.

    There is no word as to whether Cara Dune will be recast or written off the show completely. Either way, we will keep you posted as more information about this story surfaces including if an official public statement is made by Disney/Lucasfilm.

    There's a lot that could be said, but "didn't see that coming," is not one of them. Granted this is shocking, but it's not surprising.

    How much of a moron do you have to be to throw away an opportunity to be in Star Wars? She deserved it though; her tweets were getting more and more vile and her acting all “buddy-buddy” with TFM were absolutely abhorrent. It really is a shame because I enjoyed Cara Dune as a character. Hopefully she gets recast or have her story finished in a book or comic.

    I’m just glad to see that Disney/Lucasfilm finally took a stance on this.

    That’s what I suspected. It explains why they didn’t announce her for Rangers of the New Republic back in December, which was suspect given unlike earlier reports that she would be a lead in it.

    She's a celebrity crush of mine and I don't mind her as an actress and I like Cara Dune but damn Gina sure done goofed up!

    I hate "cancel culture" and personal issues being judged when it's not affecting someone's work but she should have known to just keep certain things to herself than go full out with freedom of speech just because she can and it's a right

    What you call "cancel culture" we call accountability for one's actions. What Gina is doing is the equivalent of someone shouting fire in a crowded theater and there being no fire. Her speech is borderline dangerous especially believing in things such as anti-mask and vaccine. Just because you have freedom of speech though doesn't mean there isn't consequences.

    Rumors are they did. They just didn't want to impact Mando S2.

    Not that i care about...never liked her character and her acting anyways.

    I'm just curious.

    Saying that her views being surpressed were equivalent to how the Holocaust started. She's also anti-max, vaccine, and supported the Capitol riot.

    I hope they don’t cancel Cara Dune. I love that character.

    I wonder who the next person whose opinions are dangerous enough to get them fired will be.

    They must've deleted the tweet. It's "unavailable".
