Gina Carano Still Wants To Return To ‘Star Wars’ After Suing Disney For At Least $75K

She hopes to win at least $75,000 and act as Cara Dune once more.

Former ‘The Mandalorian’ star Gina Carano filed a lawsuit against Disney and Lucasfilm, seeking at least $75,000 in damages and a return to her role as Cara Dune in the ‘Star Wars’ series.

Carano’s legal action comes three years after her departure from the franchise, due to her social media posts that Lucasfilm described as ‘abhorrent and unacceptable.’ After filing the lawsuit, Carano took to X to issue a statement, writing:

“As for me, I would love to pick up where I left off & continue my journey of creating & participating in story-telling, which is my utmost passion & everything I worked so hard for. It has been difficult to move forward with the lies & labels stuck on me, backed & encouraged by the most powerful entertainment company in the world. I am grateful [Elon Musk] has come to my defense in such a powerful way & look forward to clearing my name.”

You can read her full statement via the tweet below.

What is Carano’s Lawsuit About?

Carano’s lawsuit alleges wrongful discharge and sex discrimination, claiming the treatment of her social media activities was different compared to those of her male co-star, Pedro Pascal. While Pascal faced no repercussions for a post made in 2017, Carano argues that she was unjustly fired for expressing conservative views on topics such as Black Lives Matter, preferred pronouns, and election fraud.

The lawsuit is supported financially by Elon Musk through X Corp. Musk previously stated he is committed to backing legal fees for users of the social media platform X who allege discrimination. The billionaire also criticized Disney’s decisions and policies on X openly, writing:

“An anonymous source just sent me this from Disney. It is mandatory, institutionalized racism and sexism!”

His following tweet read:

“If you were discriminated against by Disney or its subsidiaries (ABC, ESPN, Marvel, etc), just reply to this post to receive legal support.”

What Did Disney Say About The Lawsuit?

Former Disney CEO Bob Iger remained tight-lipped about the lawsuit, offering no comment when questioned. Meanwhile, Musk has not shied away from voicing his opinions, taking to X to lambast Disney’s actions and urging his followers to join the lawsuit:

“Please let us know if you would like to join the lawsuit against Disney.”

As the legal battle progresses, it remains to be seen if Carano will make a return to ‘Mandalorian.’
