STAR WARS: AHSOKA Series Finds its Actor to Play Ezra Bridger

The AHSOKA Star Wars series is most definitely a direct sequel to the animated series STAR WARS: REBELS as Deadline has confirmed that actor Eman Esfandi has landed the role of Ezra Bridger. And OMFG he definitely looks the part for the live action version of the character.

Other Rebels characters included in this series are Sabine, Hera, and presumably Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Deadline reports:

"Disney+ has found its Ezra Bridger. Eman Esfandi has been tapped to play the animated character in Disney+’s live-action Ahsoka series, sources have confirmed to Deadline. Lucasfilm declined comment...

"Ahsoka, Disney+’s spinoff of The Mandalorian, stars Rosario Dawson as the titular Ahsoka Tano. Written by Star Wars Rebels co-creator Dave Filoni and executive produced by Filoni and Jon Favreau, the series will continue Ahsoka’s story. Cast also includes Ray Stevenson, Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren from the Star Wars Rebels animated series, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Hayden Christensen also is expected to reprise his role as Anakin Skywalker. Plot details are being kept under wraps."

Look for this to potentially be officially announced by Lucasfilm at their D23 Expo 2022 presentation on Saturday September 10 starting at 10am PT.
