Okay, admittedly this Iím definitely interested in. Ahsoka is by far one of my favorite Star Wars characters. Rosario Dawson did a good live action portrayal of her. Curious if this will be a full series or something limited like the Obi-Wan series.

I think it would be more than just limited. They set up a lot of stuff in the last few episodes, plus what was leftover from Rebels to get atleast 3 years out of it. At least that is my hope.

This is a golden age of Star Wars content. An embarrassment of riches.

As long as it stays of the high quality caliber of the Mandalorian I'm in. It just worries me they announced THAT many projects in one day. Seems like Disney didn't learn their lesson about oversaturation. I hope I'm wrong though.

You know they didn't just announce a bunch of shit all at once right? All of these are at various stages of development. Some have been known or rumored for awhile now.

!!!

Now, Dawson is leading a live-action Ahsoka spinoff for Disney+, with sources saying Lucasfilm is looking for an actress to star opposite Dawson as Mandalorian warrior Sabine Wren.

I mean, I'm sure Tiya Sircar is available. They might be looking for a name like they did with Dawson though (cuz Ashley Eckstein was also available.)

Holy crap Sabine!

Lends some credence to that rumor about castings for Ezra Bridger and Admiral Thrawn.

So with Sabine, we'll probably be looking at an Asian actress in her mid-twenties/early thirties.

Lana Condor?

Sabine is another Mandalorian from Rebels, along with Ezra and Thrawn.




You really should watch The Clone Wars and Rebels, they both fill in so much storytelling and introduce great characters.

This just gets better and better. A lot of people have come around on Hayden and this will be great storytelling to have all these characters together.

EXCLUSIVE: Natasha Liu Bordizzo (The Society) has been cast as a lead opposite Rosario Dawson in the Disney+ limited series Star Wars: Ahsoka, a spinoff from the streamer’s hit series The Mandalorian, I have learned. I hear Bordizzo will be taking on the character of Sabine Wren from the Star Wars Rebels animated series. Reps from Lucasfilm and Bordizzo did not return emails seeking comment.

Dawson stars as Ahsoka Tano in the limited series after making the Star Wars: Clone Wars and Rebels character’s live-action debut in The Mandalorian. The offshoot, written by Dave Filoni and executive produced by Filoni and Jon Favreau, will continue Ahsoka’s story.

No additional information about the new series has been released by Lucasfilm, but there has been a lot of online speculation that key characters from Rebels such as Sabine Wren and Ezra Bridger would join Ahsoka in the new show.

That is because, prior to dropping in on The Mandalorian to assess the Child, Ahsoka was last seen in the series finale of Rebels, where she and Wren set out to find Bridger, who had been whisked away by the Purrgil.

Sabine Wren, who was voiced on Rebels by Tiya Sircar, is a young Mandalorian warrior and graffiti artist, Imperial Academy dropout and a former bounty hunter with expert knowledge of weapons and explosives.

Ahsoha, which is eyeing a March production start date, according to a ProductionWeekly listing, also is expected to feature an appearance by Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker, who would reunite with his Jedi Padawan, Ahsoka, likely in flashbacks as the series is set five years after Return of the Jedi.

Bordizzo made her screen debut as Snow Vase in Netflix’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny. She also starred on the streamer’s series The Society and in the 2019 film Crazy About You. Her feature credits also include The Voyeurs, Detective Chinatown 2, Guns Akimbo and Hotel Mumbai. She will next be seen in Day Shift.

Iíve been wanting live action Star Wars series since I was a kid watching Buck Rogers and Battlestar Galactica. These shows are the sort of content Iíve waited decades for. Love it!

Casting announcement that crossed earlier today



I'm not really familiar with this actress. I've seen a couple of the things she was in, but don't recall her.

The actress sort of looks like Omega from The Bad Batch.

I know the character was just cast but she looks a lot more like Sabine than that other actress.

I think Sabine is supposed to be Asian (or least resembles Earth Asians, however we're supposed to describe such things).

I believe Omega is supposed to have been cloned from Jango Fett, so she should probably look Maori, but she's blond and looks more or less Caucasian. But she's still a new character and seems to have a lot of secrets, so she might be really be something else entirely.
