Gina Carano Confirms Episode of RUNNING WILD WITH BEAR GRYLLS Will Stream on Disney+

By Movieguide® Staff

Actress Gina Carano confirmed that National Geographic would run her episode of RUNNING WILD WITH BEAR GRYLLS.

After speculation that Disney+—which hosts the Nat Geo channel—would not run Carano’s episode, the former THE MANDALORIAN actress confirmed it would be available to the public. 

“Want to hear something cool? Just so happens you WILL be able to see my @beargrylls episode on @natgeo after all!! Bear is a real one. I’m so glad you’re going to get to see it. My heart is so full,” Carano tweeted. 

After Lucasfilm fired Carano over her conservative viewpoints, many thought that Disney+ would continue to silence the actress by not releasing her episode alongside Bear Grylls. Outlets, like TV Maze, did not include Carano’s episode in their listings of upcoming episodes.  

However, on May 10, at 9 p.m. ET, tune into Disney+ to watch Carano’s first appearance on the streaming platform since her firing from THE MANDALORIAN.

The conservative actress and former MMA fighter is no stranger to controversy. Last year, fans demanded that Disney fire Carano over various comments regarding face masks, Democrats, and voter fraud.

The newest controversy comes after Carano, 38, ironically shared her opinion on how political hostility mirrors communist regimes in history.

“Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children. Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views?” read the post, which Carano had posted to her Instagram.

Carano also posted a photo of a person wearing cloth masks to cover their face and head and captioned it: “Meanwhile in California.”

Instagram removed both posts. Disney announced that Carano was no longer “employed by” the company after fans took to Twitter with “#FireGinaCarano.”
