The live-action debut of Ahsoka Tano was unanimously loved by fans of the character, who made her debut in The Clone Wars animated series. She quickly gained popularity as Anakin’s Jedi apprentice. Fans are eager to see her return in her live-action solo series, but just as excited for the debut of Sabine Wren, a character who has been rumored for the series for quite a while now. Deadline is reporting that actress Natasha Liu Bordizza has joined the cast of Ahsoka as the Mandalorian. She will star opposite Rosario Dawson who plays the titular character.
At the very end of Star Wars: Rebels we saw an older Ahsoka Tano meet up with Sabine Wren. Yet, once we see her again in The Mandalorian she was by herself. It seems the series will indeed follow Ahsoka and Sabine as they travel the galaxy searching for Ezra Bridger whose believed to be held hostage by Grand Admiral Thrawn. This was set up via Ahsokas time on Corvus, where she met Din Djarin and the two teamed up to take down the Magistrate.
Ahsoka is definitely one of the most anticipated projects coming to Disney+ as the character finally gets her own well-deserved series. The series is set to star Dawnson and Bordizza alongside Hayden Christensen, once again reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker. The series is also rumored to feature Mena Massoud as Ezra Bridger, another character making their live-action debut. Ahsoka is currently set to start filming next year around March.
