Ezra Bridger will soon be making his live-action debut in the Star Wars universe. Eman Esfandi has been cast as the Jedi in the upcoming Ahsoka series on Disney+.
Esfandi is a relatively unknown actor, with credits in Red 11, King Richard, and the upcoming The Inspection. Not much is known about Ezra’s role in the Ahsoka series, but, given his popularity, he’s likely to become a major player going forward.
Ezra was first introduced in the animated Star Wars: Rebels back in 2014. The character quickly became a fan favorite, with many fans clamoring for a live-action debut. He was last seen disappearing into space along with Grand Admiral Thrawn in the series’ finale.
Ahsoka will see Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) at the center of her own show. This iteration of the character was first introduced in Season 2 of The Mandalorian, where it was revealed she was on the search for Grand Admiral Thrawn. She then appeared in an episode of this year’s The Book of Boba Fett, where she is seen training young Grogu alongside Luke Skywalker.
Ahsoka hails from writer Dave Filoni, who will executive produce the series alongside Jon Favreau. Lucasfilm is financing the latest Star Wars live-action series with Disney+ handling distribution. Additionally, production on the series is slated to begin in the next few months.
