news culture Star Wars: Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Die Hard 4, Scott Pilgrim) cast for a highly anticipated series!
In December 2020, Disney unveiled a large part of its projects, and in particular the various productions to come around Star Wars. In addition to Andor, The Acolyte and Obi-Wan Kenobi, the firm has announced that a series in live action will be devoted to Ahsoka Tano.
If you are a fan of animated series The Clone Wars and Rebels, you already know Ahsoka Tano, a Jedi apprentice, a padawan, trained by Anakin Skywalker. As for people who have seen The Mandalorianthey know that the character also appeared as Rosario Dawson.
The cast of the Ahsoka series becomes clearer
This will be fine back for the Ahsoka seriesof which the production is expected to start in March. The season will be written and produced by Dave Filoniwho helped create the character in 2008 and is involved in numerous Star Wars projects, while Jon Favreau will be executive producer. The series does not yet have a release date, but we are gradually discovering the people who will appear in the cast.
Hayden Christensen should return to his role as Anakin Skywalker (before becoming Vader again in Obi-Wan Kenobi, note), Natasha Liu Bordizzo (Sabine Wren) and Ivanna Sakhno, whose role seems to be an original creation. But today’s news is the arrival at the casting of Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Her role in the Ahsoka series is kept secret, but her background promises an interesting participation. She actually appeared in Birds of Prey, Fargo, Gemini Man, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Die Hard 4, Boulevard de la Mort, Scott Pilgrim (Ramona) BrainDead or Mercy Street and smashed.
It is important to note that, if Hayden Christensen resumes his role of Anakin well, it is because we should, as in The Bobba Fett Bookto have the right to flashbacks enriching the lore The Clone Wars/Rebels feature films and series, as the series will be set five years after the fall of Palpatine and the Empire. So we only have just waiting for production to start to have the first images and of the series as well as an output window.
