Gina Carano Fires Back at Disney After the Company Files Motion to Dismiss Lawsuit Over Her ‘Mandalorian’ Exit

Gina Carano has written that the Walt Disney Company will “take any chance they get to control what you say, what you think or they will attempt to destroy your career,” issuing a social media response to the studio’s recent motion to dismiss the actor’s lawsuit against the company.

Carano starred on the Disney+ “Star Wars” series “The Mandalorian” for two seasons before being fired for in February 2021, after she analogized the treatment of modern-day conservatives to the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany.

Carano sued the studio in February, arguing that Disney unlawfully retaliated against her for expressing her politics, as opposed to Disney’s preferred ideological views. The studio filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit Tuesday, arguing that it had a First Amendment right to fire the actor and that it had a “constitutional right not to associate its artistic expression with Carano’s speech.”
