Gina Carano has released a statement after she was fired from the Star Wars series The Mandalorian.
The 38-year-old actress, who played Cara Dune on the Disney+ series, was let go by Lucasfilm because of her controversial social media posts. In one of the posts, she compared the treatment of conservatives in the United States to how Jewish people were treated in Germany during the Nazi era.
Now, Gina plans on working with the conservative website The Daily Wire to make a new movie.
“The Daily Wire is helping make one of my dreams — to develop and produce my own film — come true. I cried out and my prayer was answered,” Gina told Deadline. “I am sending out a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob. I have only just begun using my voice which is now freer than ever before, and I hope it inspires others to do the same. They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them.”
Gina will be developing, producing, and starring in the movie, which will be an exclusive Daily Wire release. The site’s Ben Shapiro said, “We could not be more excited to be working with Gina Carano, an incredible talent dumped by Disney and Lucasfilm for offending the authoritarian Hollywood Left. This is what Daily Wire exists to do: provide an alternative not just for consumers, but for creators who refuse to bow to the mob. We’re eager to bring Gina’s talent to Americans who love her, and we’re just as eager to show Hollywood that if they want to keep cancelling those who think differently, they’ll just be helping us build the Xwing to take down their Death Star.”
