Reportedly, casting for Ezra Bridger from Star Wars Rebels for a Disney+ show has started, according to Screen Rant. Over the past couple of months, it seems that Disney has been moving a few of its Star Wars characters to live-action production. That’s given news of Katee Sackhoff being cast as Bo-Katan Kryze and Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano.
The actors will be seen in the second season of The Mandalorian, which is scheduled to begin in October on Disney+.
Ezra Bridger would also be on the same streaming service.
Starting in 2014 on Disney XD, Rebels, with Dave Filoni as its showrunner, displayed new characters. The show honed in mostly on a group of rebels called the Ghost Crew, who labor on Lothal and the surrounding area. Besides Ezra, the group is comprised of Sabine, Chopper, Zeb, Kanan and Hera. They went to battle against the Galactic Empire as part of the larger Rebellion, of which the freedom fighters were a part.
The series came to a conclusion after four seasons and was accompanied by a few questions about what came of Ezra.
Ezra was with Grand Admiral Thrawn when the Purrgil went to hyperspace with Thrawn’s craft. From that point, there’s no understanding as to Ezra’s fate. However, Filoni has confirmed that Ezra (and Thrawn) continued to live.
Fast forward to today.

According to the casting description, Disney seeks a male actor between 30 and 40 years old.
Disney is additionally seeking Asian actors in particular. Although, they’re willing to take auditions from Middle Eastern, Latino or Indian actors.
It’s important to remember that this isn’t gospel since Disney hasn’t made an official announcement on the matter. Still, it’s quite exciting!
