Recently, Kessel Run Transmitions reported that a source linked to Disney said the studio is considering playing actor Mena Massoud (‘Aladdin’) to play Ezra Bridger in ‘Ahsoka’, a series that will explore the journey of the renegade jedi. .
For those who are not familiar, Ezra Bridger is a character from the “Star Wars: Rebels” animation. He was the Padawan apprentice of Kanada Jarrus and helped the Rebel Alliance defeat the Imperial forces.
In the final episode, Bridger goes missing after a mission to finish off the Empire’s soldiers, and the series ends with Ahsoka and her group of friends teaming up to find him.
And it looks like the star has confirmed the news on her Instagram profile.
In a post on the social network, Massoud appears shirtless, but some fans were taken aback by the enigmatic caption, which says:
“Hey, just to let you know, when I go I’m not going to hurt any of you.”
For those who haven’t watched “Star Wars: Rebels,” Ezra says this same phrase to a group of Stormtroopers when he is captured by the Empire in one of the episodes.
As of yet, there is nothing confirmed, but everything indicates that Massoud is provoking the public to cover up a possible announcement.
