Gina Carano fired from The Mandalorian

Gina Carano has been fired by Lucasfilm in the wake of social media posts and will not be reprising the role of Cara Dune in the Golden Globe-nominated live-action Star Wars spin-off series, The Mandalorian.

“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” a Lucasfilm representative said in a Wednesday statement. “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”

The Alderaan survivor is a fan-favourite and there are calls for the character to be recast with Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess) in Rangers of the New Republic.

Gina Carano will not be appearing in any future Star Wars projects for Disney.
