Ahsoka: King Richard Star Eman Esfandi Rumoured to Be Playing Ezra Bridger in First Live Action Appearance of Legendary Star Wars Character

Ahsoka: King Richard Star Eman Esfandi Rumoured to Be Playing Ezra Bridger

Star Wars fans are still dumbfounded about who will be given the opportunity to bring Ezra Bridger to life in the live-action Ahsoka TV series. The legendary character from the 3D Star Wars Rebels is yet to appear in his live-action form, and there are currently two candidates who seem fit enough to portray the Jedi Padawan.

Back in February 2021, it was reported that Aladdin star Mena Massoud was eyed by Lucasfilm as the main candidate to portray Bridger in a live-action adaptation. But there has been no official confirmation of Massoud taking over the role since then, and we already have a new candidate rumored to star as Bridger instead.

Ezra Bridger is the protagonist in Star Wars Rebels. The character had humble but mischievous beginnings on his home planet of Lothal which was terrorized by the Galactic Empire. Bridger eventually turns into a Jedi Padawan, mentored by Kanan Jarrus. He then ends up joining the Rebel Alliance in its battle against the Galactic Empire.

As of now, there is currently no information on who will be playing Grand Admiral Thrawn opposite Eman Esfandi’s Bridger, but we’re hoping we get someone who can play the menacing Chiss character to his full potential.

“Oh yeah, we started filming on my birthday, May 9, and we’re just a couple months shy of finishing, so…”

It seems like Dawson and the crew won’t be done filming at least until November or sometime closer. Here’s to hoping that Ahsoka can give us a powerful and interesting insight into the character’s life sooner than later because we’re all waiting for that eventual fight with Thrawn, and Bridger’s return.
