The Force Not with CaranoFebruary 10, 2021
Gina Carano, the actor with a history of controversial statements ranging from Black Lives Matter to COVID-19, is done with Star Wars. Assuming she was ever going to continue; which wasn’t ever confirmed.
According to a statement obtained by io9, “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future. Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
Carano has been trending on Twitter after a post she made (since deleted) comparing people attacking political views to being Jewish in Nazi Germany.
Lucasfilm stuck with the actor well-longer than many expected, and while she wasn’t confirmed to return, given the number of spin-offs from The Mandalorian, it would be surprising if it wasn’t considered; but no longer.
It will be fascinating to see what effect, if any, these new comments will have on her future employment prospects.
