    That instagram post was the last drop. The news outlets make it look like that was the only thing she's being punished for. She wasn't. Lucasfilm/Disney was well in their right to terminate her contract, and I'm surprised they didn't do it a lot sooner, considering some of her posts.

    I have liked Cara Dune very much and think Gina did a wonderful job giving her a voice, bringing her to life.
    But I agree with her termination. Opinions such as hers have no place in a company like Disney/Lucasfilm. She's a public figure and should have known better, but we all know common sense goes out the window sometimes.

    Freedom of speech is all well and good, but sometimes it helps to think before you post.

    Also... you may not like it but employers have every right to kick your ass out the door when your views don't align with the company's policy (and that applies to every part of the spectrum, left to right and right to left). Especially companies which have a reputation to uphold in the public eye. Bad publicity, in whatever form, is not good for the numbers, by which I mean the revenu.
    I did not type word one regarding the ability of an employer to fire a employee for any reason or no reason at all

    but this SJW crusade against her --social justice warrior-- has been going on for a long time.. first it was something about her not supporting trans athletes competing in women's sports---- women's sports should be for women only

    then they were on her about her refusing to list her "pronouns" on her twitter acct--the SJW's got very mad because all the other cast members listed their pronouns when pressured but she didn't

    then this .. and, as I DID TYPE all she did was recount history... how the nazis whipped up public frenzy to a point where the jews were 'cancelled" first socially and economically, then literally cancelled= killed

    maybe her analogy is a bit histrionic, but it IS her right to say as she will, it is her speech and opinion

    she spoke out against cancel culture and got cancelled-- her point proven. obviously she was not that attached to her job with DISNEY or she would have just shut up awhile ago, posted her 'pronouns' and then locked step with the mob

    --------------------------------------------------------
    use your own words... you should be able to- what PRECISELY did she type that was so "outrageous/hateful"? again, is recounting history hateful or dangerous? i sure the hell hope not or we are all screwed

    I did too, the actress I didnt really have a solid yes or no feel for, mostly a "meh, good choice I guess, but coulda been better" The character as a whole was great, they could recast her with someone else, maybe habe a storyline to explain the recasting ? AKA why her face would look different or something

    Just my two cents

    Words have consequences and Disney doesn't take kindly to inflammatory social media postings, as any employer would or should. Thereby... bye bye Gina!

    all this will do is embolden those SJW's who have been calling for Carano to be fired from day 1 for other reasons... now they will be gunning for someone else..doesn't matter who or for what.. "just because" is all that is needed

    I'll miss the character but she's best off gone. I'm surprised it took them so long to be honest.

    A) I'm quite happy with how episode VII to IX turned out
    B) considering Luke walked around the Millenium Falcon behind Chewie's back, I'm fairly certain he knew he wasn't burning the ancient texts since we saw them in the drawer Finn pulled a blanket from for Rose.

    C) Anakin himself broke many a lightsaber -- I wonder how many colors he cycled through before he got to red.

    ...and a completely unrelated D but relevant to the thread topic...

    My LEGO BRICK HEADZ of The Mandalorian and the Child arrived in the mail today.
    Still waiting on a replacement piece for my Lego D-0 but now I can start on another set.

    unless or until TPTB's erase the new trilogy, none of your tears will change the fact of Luke tossing his father's lightsaber into the ocean, or burning the Jedi texts (he thought he did) or any of his other exploits in EP 8

    I couldn't remember where the series was situated in the timeline of the films, so Luke wasn't on my mind... It was a pleasant surprise.

    Your wish will be granted by the mouse, just hope they keep the same calibre of directors that they do for Mando brother.

    actually the use of Luke showing up is the precise definition of it

    Deus ex Machina is when a hopeless situation is suddenly solved by an unexpected occurrence. It is a contrived plot device often used in film or novels
    hopeless situation = yup, it was. all those dark troopers and only two weapons in the crowd that couldd eal with them-maybe. the dark sabre and the beskar spear

    suddenly solved = oh yeah.. Luke did just like Daddy and sliced and diced his way through

    unexpected occurrence= absolutely unexpected. after the disaster on Tython, Din had no expectations for any Jedi to show up

    ---------
    but hey, dont get me wrong, the MANDALORIAN IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST SHOW on tv now!! The last episode was great with a disappointing final scene-- i wait impatiently for more streaming SW's content... like having a boba fett show AND maybe the mandalorian season 3 on at the same time as well as any other SW's show between now and then

    seriously,, what other JEDI do you know off flying around the galaxy in an xwing? i knew it was him i soon as i saw the ship

    oh wait-- "other jedi" my bad.. tptb's would make us think there are no other jedi
