A few Disney celebrities have flirted with disaster

  • When Disney cut ties with actress and former MMA rival Gina Carano on February 10, it looked to many like a sudden movement in reaction to a single social networking post. According to a new story from The Hollywood Reporter, though, Carano's exit in the Mandalorian and Disney had been months in the making.

    Exactly two months earlier, on December 10, Disney unveiled a whole slew of Marvel and Star Wars content, including ten new Star Wars shows. At the time, we and many others assumed Rangers was a car for Carano and also her character Cara Dune. Carano appeared in seven episodes of The Mandalorian across the show's two seasons, along with her story arc in the next had her picking up a Rangers of the New Republic badge, apparently contemplating a new path for himself.

    Really, that was exactly what Disney had planned, also THR says her bureau, UTA, was negotiating for a pay increase for the celebrity, who had been allegedly pulling at $25,000 to $50,000 a episode of The Mandalorian. Carano was meant to be a part of that demonstration, but an anonymous source told THR that Disney pulled off her demonstration. Carano had posted tweets mocking mask wearing during the coronavirus pandemic, encouraging misinformation about voter fraud, and expressing transphobic views. Those tweets led to the first warnings, even while her February 10 tweet comparing American conservatives to Jewish individuals just before the Holocaust is what sealed Carano's destiny. The decision was reportedly created by Lucasfilm executives, going higher than Mandalorian showrunner Jon Favreau.

    A few Disney celebrities have flirted with disaster in recent months. Black Panther star Letitia Wright retweeted a video questioning the safety of the coronavirus vaccine in December, and deleted her Twitter response to the blowback in the post. It's difficult not to consider James Gunn here. Disney had fired Gunn in response to offensive tweets he had posted nearly a decade previous and had already apologized for before they were resurfaced by right-wing activists and characters. In that case, Disney moved quickly in reaction to this tweets, only to re-hire Gunn a year later to direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
