The Mandalorian: Despite Fans Wanting Gina Carano Fired, Disney Reportedly Won’t Be Letting Her Go

Published on November 16th, 2020 | Updated on November 16th, 2020 | By FanFest

The Mandalorian‘s Cara Dune is a badass character on screen – a tough, female presence on the show – says what she wants and does what she wants. Gina Carano, who plays Cara, is similar to her on-screen character, saying exactly how she feels and, this time, it’s about the election and voter fraud.

Fans love The Mandalorian, and Cara Dune is a fan-favorite on the show. It’s also been rumored that she may receive her own spinoff in the Star Wars Universe. However, her comments on voting, and some others that may come across as transphobic, may be getting her into hot water – at least with viewers. Now, Mandalorian fans are wanting her replaced with another female lead… Frog Lady.  But it isn’t going to happen.

Fans haven’t held back their feelings about Carano and her position on voter fraud. There is a petition to have her removed, like Amber Heard from Aquaman 2, but those petitions very rarely gain any traction with the studios. Most often than not, studios tend to shy away from firing anyone over their opinions unless those opinions could be deemed as harmful or insensitive to others and impact the studio’s bottom line.

However, despite the uproar, according to our sources, Disney reportedly won’t part ways with Carano over her political posts, as they fear backlash for letting someone go over a political opinion.  The thought is, the country is politically divided – almost equally – and Carano’s speech is protected.  So long as her opinions aren’t detrimental or harmful, Disney will keep her in place.

Here’s Carano’s tweet and some reaction from fans and viewers. Read them for yourselves and let us know what you think. Do they warrant Carano being fired?

  1. As a human, Ms Carano is entitled to her opinion. As an American, she is entitled to voice them. Stop your whining, if you don’t like what she has said then don’t watch the show.

  2. So she’s allowed to have an opinion, but no one else is? Her speech is protected, but the public are allowed to react to that however they please. And companies are allowed to make decisions based on that. Hope Disney takes a stand against bigotry here. Transphobic plague spreaders have no place in the Star Wars universe.

  3. As humans, all those people “whining” are also entitled to their opinions, and entitled to voicing them. They are also entitled to watch the show even if they don’t like what she said. Get effed, dumb.

  4. Seriously democratic actors have been voicing their opinions (and false narratives) and now because Gina says let’s look into voter fraud you want her replaced? Grow up people! If you think Biden won, the look-see shouldn’t be a problem, should it???
