Weston has praised Carano’s talent. “Gina Carano is not only an exceptional talent but a wonderful human being and we are thrilled to be joining her in the next chapter of her career,” he said.

Carano is currently fighting a legal battle with Disney over allegations of wrongful termination and discrimination. The actress’ departure from “The Mandalorian” was sparked by a social media post comparing a Nazi’s hatred of Jews and hating someone based solely on their political views. which Lucasfilm cited as grounds for Carano’s firing.

Carano initiated a lawsuit against Disney and Lucasfilm in February. She accuses them of discriminatory practices and unjust dismissal, alleging that her departure was due to her expression of conservative viewpoints. Additionally, she is requesting a legal mandate to compel Lucasfilm to rehire her.
