It makes sense for Ezra and Thrawn to appear in the live-action “Ahsoka” series. They both play vital roles in her storyline, but as of this writing, there hasn’t been any confirmation about whether they’ll actually show up in Season 1 of “Ahsoka,” let alone who would portray them. That’s why it’s critical to take this news with a hefty dose of space salt because until Disney confirms anything, we don’t know what’s going to happen.
With that being said, Dawson’s recent Instagram post, which she later deleted, certainly raises a few eyebrows (via CBR). Dawson shared an Instagram story from another user declaring that Lars Mikkelsen (“The Witcher”) and Mena Massoud (“Aladdin”) will play Thrawn and Ezra, respectively. These two have long been the fan favorites to land the parts, and Mikkelsen even voiced Thrawn on “Star Wars Rebels.” Some fans may interpret Dawson’s repost as confirmation the two have landed roles in the series, but it’s entirely possible she merely likes the idea of working with these two.
Dawson could’ve seen this post and merely wanted to throw some fuel on the fire as fans speculate wildly. After all, Disney likes keeping things as secretive as possible with its “Star Wars” and Marvel series, as evidenced by the massive Luke Skywalker reveal at the end of “The Mandalorian” Season 2. Suffice to say, when official casting announcements for “Ahsoka” come out, you won’t be confused in the slightest.
