Season 2 of The Mandalorian featured a series of perfect casting decisions. Characters that we already knew from other Star Wars stories appeared for the first time in live-action guise as part of the new episodes. The best example of this is likely to have been Rosario Dawon as Ahsoka Tano.
Star Wars rumor: Aladdin star is said to play Ezra Bridger
Lucasfilm and Disney recognized the potential and immediately commissioned an Ahsoka spin-off. As Kessel Run Transmissions reports, the next big Star Wars character from the animation sector could appear in this series. We're talking about Ezra Bridger, the hero of Star Wars Rebels.
The casting is supposedly already fixed: Mena Massoud, known from Disney's Aladdin remake, is to play the young Jedi in the Ahsoka series and possibly WATCHSERIES Star Wars offshoots. So far, it's just a rumor. But if we're honest, Lucasfilm and Disney should draw up the contracts right away.
Mena Massoud would definitely be a great choice for Ezra Bridger. In Aladdin, he demonstrated that he can bring animation characters to life with infectious energy and enthusiasm. Unfortunately, the role offers did not materialize after the billionaire success. The Ahsoka series would be a nice way to bring Massoud back into the spotlight.
Even more well-known Star Wars characters in the Mando universe
In addition to the Ahsoka series, two other spin-off series await us that will expand the The Mandalorian universe on Disney. In particular, these are The Book of Boba Fett and Rangers of the New Republic. So here are a few ways to prepare for the arrival of more iconic Star Wars characters.
You can watch our video for the Boba Fett series here:
In connection with Ahsoka and Ezra, the names Sabine Wren, Captain Rex and Grand Admiral Thrawn are particularly interesting. The latter was already hinted at in the 5th episode of the 2nd season of The Mandalorian. Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni carry on the Clone Wars / Rebels legacy in live-action guise. These are promising prospects for the future of the Star Wars series on Disney.
