Updated with additional comments from Carano and Ben Shapiro.
Gina Carano has defiantly responded to his expulsion from The mandalorian when announcing a new partnership with The Daily Wire, a conservative website that will fund an upcoming movie starring the embattled former MMA fighter. Carano played Cara Dune in the first two seasons of The mandalorian But he has long been a lightning rod for controversy due to his highly provocative posts on social media.
Carano has been shocking in the past, seemingly disparaging the trans community and making fun of those who wear masks during the pandemic. Still, the final straw came when she compared her conservative views to being a Holocaust survivor. Disney quickly confirmed that they are no longer in business with Carano and that his social media posts were “abhorrent.”

But Carano is doubling down, announcing via Deadline that he’s teaming up with Ben Shapiro’s. The Daily Wire to produce and star in a new movie and will fight its “cancellation.”
The Daily Wire is helping to make one of my dreams come true, develop and produce my own movie. I screamed and my prayer was answered. I am sending a direct message of hope to all who live in fear of being canceled by the totalitarian mob. I have just started using my voice, which is now freer than ever, and I hope it inspires others to do the same. They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them.
Shapiro expressed his enthusiasm for Carano’s participation with The Daily Wire The burgeoning wing of entertainment, as well as his long-documented contempt for what he perceives as liberal Hollywood.
We couldn’t be more excited to work with Gina Carano, an incredible talent abandoned by Disney and Lucasfilm for offending Hollywood’s authoritarian left. That’s what the Daily Wire is for: offering an alternative not only for consumers, but also for creators who refuse to bow down to the mob.
Carano also commented on the association with The Daily Wire in response to a tweet from Shapiro promoting a discount on The Daily Wire subscriptions. “This is just the beginning … welcome to the rebellion. “ Carano wrote.
Carano and Shapiro frame the firing of the Disney and Lucasfilm star as a result of the mob rule, rather than a direct result of their offensive actions. Disney is not managed based on the musings of liberals on social media. Carano has an established history of making scandalous and offensive comments and acting as if he ignored the hatred he was spreading. Disney is not in the business of offending its consumers, and Carano’s ideology regarding the trans community and the pandemic places her decidedly outside the mainstream. It’s really puzzling why Carano decided to sabotage herself in such an explosive way for such a narrow belief system, but here we are.
maybe The Daily Wire He will be a better creative partner for Carano in the long term. Shapiro and his cohorts constantly criticize the notion of “canceling culture” and generally view Hollywood and the entertainment industry in general as social and political adversaries, advocating an ideology of inclusion and empathy that they reject. This seems to fit in with Carano’s worldview, and it’s nice that he has some like-minded contributors, even if it’s unclear what kind of audience is clamoring for The Daily Wire movies.
It is not yet known if Cara Dune will be recast or removed from The mandalorian. She is an integral character for the show’s first two seasons, but it’s not hard to imagine the show without her. Regardless, Carano’s career will continue, just in a decidedly different way, and probably on a much smaller scale.
