May the force be with you, Part II?
There’s a rumor making the rounds that Gina Carano might return to Disney and The Mandalorian, following a well-documented split in February.
At the time, Carano said she was “bullied” on the set of the show, leading her to quit. The reason she took so much grief? Because she stood across the political aisle from Disney and dared to voice her opinions.
“I’ve been through so much, and I’ve seen so much now, clearly, of the bullying that’s been taking place, and I saw it before,” she told Ben Shapiro of The Daily Wire. “I’m not the only one that’s ever been bullied by this company, and I know that so deeply.”
Meanwhile, Disney said it fired Carano from her role as Cara Dune on The Mandalorian as a result of “abhorrent and unacceptable” social media posts, comparing modern-day people who mistreat their neighbors based on political beliefs to how the Nazis allowed Germans to do their dirty work for them during World War II.
But suddenly, we have talk of a return. YouTuber Doomcock has cited a source who indicated that Carano may make a return after all.
“A source has come forward, claiming that Gina is talking to Disney about returning and proof of these talks has already materialized,'” Doomcock said. “As reported in my last Pop Culture Breakdown episode, Disney officially uncancelled Gina Carano’s episode of Running Wild With Bear Grylls on NatGeo.”
According to those in the know, Doomcock is batting about a thousand in these type of projections — regardless of how unlikely they may seem.
Plus, Carano sent out a tweet that kept the rumor mill churning, intentionally or not. That’s what happens when you tell fans to “start making room for what you prayed for, because it’s on the way.”
Gina Carano? Back with Disney? If it’s true, everyone can always explain it simply by using the famous quote from Princess Leia: “You know, no matter how much we fought, I’ve always hated watching you leave.”
