The series is already a highly anticipated project for fans of the Star Wars franchise and every news regarding it keeps getting better and better.

This possibility was not so much out of the question, as Rosario Dawson’s Ahsoka seemed just as impossible before The Mandalorian’s second season changed everything. A lot of things that did not seem possible at first were made so, mostly thanks to Pedro Pascal’s hit series. From Dawson’s character to Ahmed Best’s Kelleran and now Mikkelsen’s Thrawn, there seems to be a lot that is waiting for the fans of the franchise.

Lars Mikkelsen Returns As Thrawn In Ahsoka

Earlier it was confirmed that Lars Mikkelsen‘s Grand Admiral Thrawn will be making his live-action debut in Ahsoka after his character was highly loved by the fans. The series was one to attract a lot of fans already, however, this announcement has only become a bigger reason for them to look forward to Dawson’s show.

Mikkelsen will be making his live-action debut as Admiral Thrawn, a villain who very quickly became a fan favorite. The antagonist first made an appearance in the books during the 1990s and made his animated debut in 2016 in Star Wars: Rebels. This came to be despite Disney purchasing Lucasfilm and sidelining the character. David Filoni brought him back to his original glory and gave him his cunning personality. Ahsoka had already been looking for Thrawn in Star Wars: The Clone Wars but, that never came to be. So to see the villain coming in the series has been delightful, to say the least.
