It appears that Gina Carano's "The Mandalorian" character will stay in a galaxy far, far away.
Although the Disney+ show returned on Wednesday, March 1, for its third season, neither Gina nor her Cara Dune character will be found on screen.
"Cara was a big part and continues as a character to be part of the world," executive producer Rick Famuyiwa told Deadline. "At the same time, what has been at the heart of the show are the two characters Din Djarin and Grogu."
He added, "It's a big galaxy, and we have many characters in it — many characters are fighting for their screen time. We'll just have to see as the season unfolds what the adventures are, but it's a great character, someone who was vital to Din Djarin's beginnings."
Gina's absence isn't really surprising. The MMA fighter-turned-actress was fired in February 2021 after posting an Instagram photo that compared being a conservative Republican to being Jewish in Nazi Germany during WWII. The message said that "Jews here beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…" It went on to claim "the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews."
Gina has never wavered from her conservative political views. In fact, she told Meghan McCain last year that she has no regrets about getting "canceled."
"I don't feel like I did anything wrong," she told pal Meghan for her MailOnline column. "I understand now that there's words that can be better used and that are certainly more sensitive, but if people read it now after a year or more has passed and they look at it and they think: 'Wait a second, there's no way you just canceled for that.'"
She added, "I feel like neighbors turning on neighbors is what these corporations benefit off of, and what the government benefits off of is turning us on each other. People ask me what I got canceled for and I say: 'I told neighbors to get along.'"
