Ahsoka Series Storyline
At the conclusion of The Mandalorian Season 2, which takes place five years after Return of the Jedi, Ahsoka is searching the galaxy for Grand Admiral Thrawn. It’s unknown who will play the Thrawn, a renowned antagonist from the Star Wars canon who has never been seen in a live-action film, but we’re really hoping Lars Mikkelsen, who portrayed him in Star Wars Rebels, gets the role.
He is a skilled performer and could easily make the switch to a live-action part. When it comes to Rebels, it has been decided that Eman Esfandi will assume the role of Ezra Bridger in the show. It’s expected that Ahsoka will concentrate on her quest to locate both Thrawn and Bridger because Star Wars Rebels ended on a cliffhanger with their disappearance.
“The narrative of Ahsoka never ends. As opposed to being small, stand-alone excursions, it is obviously moving toward a goal, in my opinion, said Dave Filoni in an interview with Vanity Fair(opens in new tab). “I want the character to be acting in that way, and I believe that’s what fans currently desire.
Filoni continued, “I’ve only recently started to comprehend that all those kids who watched Clone Wars are now a lot older, and they’re really thrilled about all the things they grew up with, as they should be. The unknown villain on the show is portrayed by actor Ray Stevenson and is said to be a pre-ROTJ character.
In addition, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Ivanna Sakhno, who are both portraying characters that have not yet been revealed, have been added to the cast. The fact that Hayden Christensen will appear in the series has been confirmed, albeit it remains unknown whether he will play Anakin Skywalker or Darth Vader.
