Star Wars: Gina Carano Learned of Firing Through Social Media

The fact that Carano learned she was dropped from Lucasfilm at the same time as the rest of the world is somewhat surprising.

When writer Bari Weiss contacted Gina Carano, the actress opened up about how Lucasfilm attempted to force her apology over posting “beep/bop/boop” in her Twitter bio last fall:

“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.”

According to Carano, Lucasfilm responded by barring her from all press and promotion for Season 2 of The Mandalorian. She complied with the decision saying that it 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.”
On February 11, following the actress’s Instagram post comparing Nazi Germany to today’s political atmosphere, a Lucasfilm rep issued a statement stating Carano was no longer with Lucasfilm.

During Disney’s Investor Day Event, Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy announced a new Disney+ series titled Rangers of the New Republic. Due to Carano’s Cara Dune’s Season 2 storyline, it seemed apparent this series would’ve included the actress.
