Star Wars is riding a huge wave of momentum thanks to the creation of the MandoVerse and just when it felt like the Lucasfilm property was on the brink of obscurity, shows like The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett have undeniably breath new life onto the franchise.
One of the MandoVerse projects fans are most excited about is the standalone Ahsoka series starring Rosario Dawson. Production for the project, which will reportedly serve as an extension of Star Wars Rebels will reportedly kickstart very soon but the show's cast and crew have already been set in stone since last year. Well, that's what initial reports said, at least.
According to several sources, Lucasfilm has long cast Ezra Bridger and Grand Admiral Thrawn with Mena Massoud and Lars Mikkelsen taking on the live-action roles respectively. Dawson even posted about it on social media back in July which led many to believe that the rumors were in fact true.
Now, a conflicting new update from Twitter tipster MyTimeToShineHello just surfaced and it might confuse a lot of fans. According to the oftentimes reliable scooper, Lucasfilm has just finished casting both Ezra and Thrawn which pretty much debunks the reports from last year. To be fair, Lucasfilm never confirmed the rumored involvement of Massoud and Mikkelsen so this latest report definitely carries a lot of weight.
There's no denying that the MandoVerse reinvigorated the entire Star Wars franchise which is why Lucasfilm has been giving it all the attention in the world and rightfully so. And with Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni in charge, fans can sleep soundly at night knowing that their favorite franchise is in good hands.
Ahsoka is currently scheduled for release next year.
