Ahsoka, one of the Star Wars series coming to Disney Plus, may have had some details leaked online concerning plot and casting details.
According to the rumor reported by Daniel RPK, the tagline for the new Star Wars show is as follows, “Ahsoka Tano 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.”
This same Ahsoka report supposedly held casting information for two new characters. 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.”
The other Ahsoka character is Morai, whose casting details were 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 actors between the ages of 40-60 years old are ideal.”
Ahsoka is just one of the many Star Wars television series coming to Disney Plus. Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Book of Boba Fett, Visions, Andor, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, Rangers of the New Republic, Lando and The Acolyte. The Bad Batch and A Droid Story are two animated films in the works as well. The Book of Boba Fett and the third season of The Mandalorian are set to release later this year.
As of this writing, a release date for Ahsoka has not been announced.
