AHSOKA: Did Rosario Dawson Just Confirm Recent Ezra Bridger And Grand Admiral Thrawn Casting Rumors?
We recently learned that Lucasfilm may have cast Ezra Bridger and Grand Admiral Thrawn in The Mandalorian spinoff series Ahsoka, but did Rosario Dawson just confirm the news? Read on for further details...
It was recently reported that the Ahsoka series coming to Disney+ has cast Mena Massoud as Ezra Bridger and Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn. While the latter voiced the villain in Star Wars Rebels and is now seemingly set to return to the role in live-action, the Aladdin star is very much a newcomer to this Galaxy Far, Far Away.
If the rumours are true, this is pitch-perfect casting on Lucasfilm's part, but has it now been confirmed by Ahsoka Tano herself, Rosario Dawson?
The actress recently took to Instagram to share a post from a fan in which they celebrated the rumored casting of Massoud and Mikkelsen. Dawson is no stranger to secretive franchises (she kept her role as Ahsoka under wraps long enough), so perhaps she's already aware of them joining the series and simply doesn't realise it hasn't been made official yet?
On the other hand, this could just be a simple mistake!
Either way, Ahsoka is shaping up to be an extremely exciting series. Rumour has it that we'll also see live-action versions of Captain Rex, Barriss Offee, and Sabine Wren, though there's no casting news on that front yet (we are, however, assuming Temuera Morrison would play Rex).
Keep checking back here for updates on Ahsoka because something is clearly brewing...
