Cara Dune No More: Gina Carano Fired By Disney


In a stunning (not really) bit of news tonight, Disney has officially removed Gina Carano and her character Cara Dune from any upcoming Star Wars projects. The news is breaking all over the internet with a rep from Lucasfilm making an official announcement that Carano's denigrating commentary and derogatory remarks do not fall in line with their family oriented business model. The hashtag #FireGina went viral today and was trending on Twitter and other social media outlets. We do have free speech to say what we want in much of the world. But sometimes there are consequences for our actions. We're not going to comment on whether or not we support or do not support what happened. We're not a political outlet. But this is part of entertainment. The official word came out as this from Disney:

"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."

Obviously, we will update as we hear more. Numerous sites including and Gizmodo are reeling with the news. Another quote we just found says:

"They have been looking for a reason to fire her for two months. And today was the final straw". We guess so.
