This new story is really bizarre. I can’t imagine Disney firing Gina Carano from the Mandalorian. What ever happened to separating art from the artist?
The ongoing social media frenzy that surrounds actor and women’s MMA fighter Gina Carano has only seemed to pick up speed once again, with the #FireGinaCarano resurfacing on Twitter. The Mandalorian star who plays ex-mercenary and the current Nevarro New Republic Marshal Cara Dune has been heavily under fire on social media throughout the bulk of Season 2, but so far has emerged without burns. It seems Gina may have the show’s creator, Jon Favreau, to thank for that.
Pirates and Princess reportedly has insider knowledge that Jon Favreau, unlike the rest of Lucasfilm, is not publically political, nor does he care about what others stand for — including Gina Carano’s controversial right-wing beliefs. Author WDW Pro writes, “I’m told that the feeling inside Lucasfilm is generally disdain for Carano as well. The problem for all of those who hate Carano based on her worldview and political positions is that Jon Favreau isn’t publicly political… and word on the street is he doesn’t care one iota for the divisiveness. If Carano was employed in any other part of Lucasfilm, she’d be gone, and she would have been let go long ago.”
