As development continues to mount on Star Wars: Ahsoka, Deadline reports the upcoming series has added Ivanna Sakhno (Pacific Rim: Uprising) to the cast.
Star Wars: Ahsoka stars Rosario Dawson as the titular former Jedi who made her debut to the Star Wars universe in The Mandalorian. Dawson will be joined by Natasha Liu Bordizzo (The Society) as Star Wars Rebels‘ Sabine Wren. Sakhno’s role is unknown, but it will apparently be an original creation rather than another The Clone Wars or Rebels character.
Hayden Christensen, who is reprising his Prequel Trilogy role as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader in Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi, will also play Anakin in Ahsoka. As detailed in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, it was Anakin who trained Ahsoka before his turn to the Dark Side.
There have also been rumours that Aladdin‘s Mena Massoud has been approached to play the live-action version of Ezra Bridger and Lars Mikkelsen is also being rumoured to reprise his role as Thrawn after voicing the character for two seasons of Rebels. However, neither Lucasfilm nor Disney have currently confirmed these castings.
