As it shall ever be; until confirmed by Lucasfilm then it’s simply a rumour, but today’s hot tip is to put a few Calamari Flan on Aladdin actor Mena Massoud to play Ezra Bridger in the forthcoming Ahsoka series on Disney Plus. Kessel Run Transmisisons boldly went all in with the news yesterday, which as stated is as yet unconfirmed by Lucasfilm.
Star Wars has been rumored to cast Aladdin’s Mena Massoud as Ezra Bridger in the upcoming Ahsoka series. A new video from Kessel Run Transmissions addresses the rumor and it will be interesting to see how the fandom reacts. Massoud previously performed admirably in the 2019 release as Aladdin raked in over a billion dollars at the box office. Since then, the actor hasn’t really had a ton going on. This would be a giant boost as Ezra is a fan-favorite character just like Ahsoka. One of those inclusions from the animated Star Wars universe that people have been seemingly been asking to make the jump to live-action from the very early days of Star Wars Rebels. Disney has not commented on the rumors or any reporting yet, but the next few years are going to see the company ratchet up the production for Disney+ offerings. If the casting ends up being true, that would greatly add to the hype of Ahsoka.
Naturally we will stay in top of this one and as soon as any official word lands, you’ll read about it here. Tune in to next weeks Making Tracks where we’ll be discussing this and much more besides.
