    She rose up in the ranks of the MMA and became an actress, She should have known better, she can't be that stupid. My theory is, she possibly wanted out because she was offered something that interested her more than Star Wars which is unbelievable to say the least, considering that she was going to star in her own spin-off series. We'll see how her career develops going forward. On my job there things that you can't do or say and when you cross that line you get the axe. I've seen some good officers loose their jobs for crossing that line its a shame.

    So are mods deleting posts? Mine and another are gone. They weren't even inflammatory ... the exchange was very amicable. Disappointing we, as mature, rational people, can't discuss.

    Lucasfilm did the right, this wasn´t the first time she says these kind of things.

    It was a post from John Campea (so take it with some salt) about how a source told him Carano had been given multiple chances to get better and said she would take this more seriously. She didn't. They pulled the plug. Basically how this was an escalating situation and they gave her all chances to just stop posting dumb blast but couldn't help herself.

    You are correct, it wasn't inflammatory or anything. But we don't need to set the precedent of getting into the politics of it and/or start any whataboutism. Thanks for understanding.

    That's...disappointing. I really liked her as Cara Dune. :(

    My feelings toward the whole concept of social media aren't getting any more amiable. You provide a free platform for folks to say what's on their minds, but all they want to do is argue. A sad state of affairs.

    Ugh, finally.

    Interesting that it seems she may have been fired a while ago- I wonder which of her particular Twitter rampages coincided with that?

    And for the umpteenth time: it's not "cancel culture" to hold some accountable for what they say in a public space, especially if they're famous or a media infulencer. Remember how adults used to say "be careful what you say on Facebook, it could cost you your job"? Well, multiply that by the hundreds of thousands of fans she has (over 660,000 on Twitter) and the millions Disney has put into The Mandalorian and... well, it's rather obvious they are fully in their right to try to protect their brand from Gina's recklessness.

    Anyway, forgetting her forever and looking to the future- is Cara Dune now Cara Done, or could she get a recast? I've seen some suggest Lana Parilla as a possible replacement.

    While I think the character of Dune deserved FAR BETTER than Gina could ever give her, I also... don't really see it as necessary to recast her. Even for Rangers of the New Republic, just give us a random new better female ranger. It's not like Dune was all that particularly fleshed out as a character yet anyway, she's just been in a handful of episodes so far.

    Well, my love and excitement for The Mandalorian has pretty much gone for the time being.

    I'm gonna take a break from Disney Star Wars, because I honestly don't know what to think of it all anymore.





    This sucks.

    It's sad that that kind of thing doesn't apply to all, because if it did, half of Hollywood would be unemployed.....because they don't have any other skills, but alas....

    We've never allowed political talk here, this is not something new.

    It's not sad. It most likely keeps several friendships intact. :)

    Oh sure go after Kirk cause he could take down the entire Empire in 30 mins and end up with the girl.

    To me Cara Dune was the weakest character in the series. Gina isn't a great actor, but she did well enough. The prospect of a series centered on her character wasn't something I was excited about seeing so I guess it's a big of silver lining.

    Sadly, Gina became the champion of the YouTube toxic brigade simply because of her online activity. I'm sure the gnashing of teeth about this is going to fuel the rage clicks and views for videos.

    Cara is in 7 out of 16 episodes, more than any other character besides Din and Grogu.

    I feel like this has all blown way out of proportion and that people are taking what she said out of context.

    Take all the time you need! Breaks sometimes help us put what we like/dislike/need/desire into perspective. And unlike relationship breaks (which, in most cases, are stupid IMO), it'll be here when you get back! ...for better or for worse...
