LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Gina Carano, the “Mandalorian” actress who was banned from the “Star Wars” spinoff for “hideous and unacceptable” social media posts, said Friday she was going to make a film with the conservative company The turn every day wire.
Walt Disney (NYSE 🙂 Co’s Lucasfilm studio said Wednesday it would no longer work with her after drawing parallels on Instagram between persecuting Jews in Nazi Germany and treating people who hold conservative political views today.
The Daily Wire said Carano will produce and star an upcoming film exclusively for subscribers to its website, which was co-founded by conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro.
In a statement on the website, Carano said she was sending a message of hope to those who fear being overturned by what she called “the totalitarian mob”.
“I’ve only just started using my voice, which is now freer than ever … you can’t turn us off if we don’t let it.”
Carano was also targeted for posts on Twitter in November mocking wearing masks amid the COVID-19 pandemic and promoting unsubstantiated claims of election fraud following the U.S. presidential election.
Quoting sources, the Hollywood Reporter said Lucasfilm introduced Carano as the star of their own Disney + series during an Investor Day presentation in December, but abandoned those plans after their November tweets.
A Disney spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment on this report.
Shapiro said The Daily Wire aims to “provide an alternative not only to consumers, but also to creators who refuse to bow to the mob”.
“We’re just as anxious to show Hollywood that if they want to cancel those who think differently, they’ll only help us build the X-Wing to turn off their Death Star,” he said in a statement from Wire Website.
