Ahsoka content is ramping up, whether that’s news of the show shooting soon, or now it’s Mary Elizabeth Winstead joining the cast. According to THR, the Birds of Prey actress is joining Rosario Dawson in the show. Ahsoka Tano made her live-action debut in the second season of The Mandalorian and now she has her own spinoff.
The series is set five years after Return of the Jedi and also includes Hayden Christensen, Ivanna Sakhno, and Natasha Liu Bordizzo. There are no details or plot regarding Winstead’s character, however. Dave Filoni is writing the series and executive producing with Jon Favreau.
Winstead has always had her hand in action and franchises, but this is her first time going to Star Wars. We’ll have to see who she’s playing when we get more information on the Ahsoka show.
