Ray Stevenson will be making his return to the Star Wars universe in the upcoming Ahsoka spin-off series, as revealed by The Hollywood Reporter. The actor is no stranger to the galaxy far far away, having voiced a Gar Saxon in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rebels. The actor will instead be making his way to a live-action series this time around in a new role
He will take on an antagonist role and will be playing an admiral. Sources say that he is not Grand Admiral Thrawn, who is believed to be the main antagonist of the series and has yet to be cast. Plot details for the series remain under wraps for the most part, although it is believed we will see Ahsoka Tano traveling alongside Sabine Wren, a character making her live-action debut, in search of Ezra Bridger and Grand Admiral Thrawn.
The series is currently scheduled to begin production towards the end of April over in Los Angeles. The series will feature the return of Rosario Dawson as the titular character, following appearances in both The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. Dawson is joined by Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine, Ivanna Sakhno, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Hayden Christensen, with Mena Massoud rumored to be playing the role of Ezra Bridger.
The series currently has no set release date but will most likely release sometime next year exclusively on Disney+. Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau return for the series with Filoni primarily writing and Favreau serving as executive producer.
