Ever since Disney announced the new live-action Ahsoka Tano series during Disney Investor Day last December, Star Wars fans have been eagerly awaiting more details on the upcoming Disney+ show. We already knew that Rosario Dawson would be reprising her role as Ahsoka who we last saw in season 2 of The Mandalorian and that the limited series would be written by Dave Filoni.
Now, we have some insight into the plot details as well. The news comes from insider Daniel Richtman who revealed the following logline and synopsis:
Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) is on the hunt for the evil Grand Admiral Thrawn in the hope it will help her locate the missing Ezra Bridger, the young Jedi that disappeared with Thrawn many years ago. Based on characters from the “Star Wars” franchise. A spinoff of the TV series “The Mandalorian”.
The gossip writer also shared some casting call details which describes two characters, Boka and Morai, as well as extras to play soldiers in the series.
Boka is described as a very strong-minded and independent, as well as a natural leader. Boyish-looking Middle Eastern, African, Pacific Islander, Black/African American, Mixed Ethnicity or West Indies/Caribbean actors between the ages of 20-35 years old are being sought after for the role.
Morai is described as a very volatile and unreliable male character, who is simultaneously complex and shady. There is no specific race or ethnicity listed for the role, but they are looking for actors who are between the ages of 40-60 years old.
It was also revealed that the new project is anticipating to begin filming later this year. An official release date for the series has not been announced yet.
