Gina Carano has seemingly burned her bridges with Disney and Lucasfilm after she was unceremoniously ousted from the Star Wars franchise last February. If you haven't been keeping up with the news, Carano was officially removed from The Mandalorian's upcoming third season over her controversial tweets which have been a major issue for a number of months now. The company's decision to fire Carano amid the growing backlash the actress has been receiving generated mixed reactions from the fandom and as it stands, Disney executives remain firm with their verdict.

Gina has come out to defend herself over the last couple of months and according to the former mixed martial arts fighter, she's adamant about standing up against the "bullies" within Disney and Lucasfilm.

Surprisingly enough, despite the fact that she was axed from The Mandalorian, Gina is proving that she was no ill feelings towards the Star Wars franchise and in fact, she takes pride in becoming a part of the iconic science-fiction juggernaut. Taking to Twitter, Carano stunned everyone by participating in the "Star Wars Day" festivities, even using the hashtag #MayTheFourthBeWithYou to promote a fanmade website especially dedicated to her.

We reported that Carano is now in talks to return to the Star Wars franchise months after her newsmaking firing from Lucasfilm. While the rumor has yet to be confirmed by any of the parties involved, one would assume that Carano's May The Fourth participation could actually be a hint of things to come. However, it still remains quite a stretch at this point. Let's just see where it leads to.

Meanwhile, all seasons of The Mandalorian are available for streaming on Disney+.
