    Filoni specifically mentioned Rian as being a major contribution for helping him make the leap into live-action production, so I certainly wouldn't be surprised to learn he contacted Rian Johnson to direct an episode for his Ahsoka series.

    I have to admit, I also want a team up of Ezra and Thrawn in the Unknown Regions against some threat there as Thrawn's seventh fleet has a BSG style journey back to the known galaxy.

    ....though since I doubt Ezra would ever approve of what Thrawn's doods were up to in the Mandalorian, I kind of want for it to end with a betrayal and Ezra captured.

    But I suppose there is no point in speculating on such things until we actually see Thrawn and Ezra again.

    Ah, cool. I really looking forward to seeing Sabine again and the casting choice looks fitting.

    That one leaker half threw cold water on that rumour. At least on the Ezra part.

    He said some casting news is correct and some wasn’t. And then in a later video dismissed the LRM article saying that none of his sources had ever heard of “the Aladdin actor” for the part and from his understanding the role hadn’t been cast yet.

    ok, as long as Thrawn is the voice actor. But Ezra's will probarly be someone who looks like an middle eastern, so far their casting been spot on.

    That would indeed be impressive casting.

    Filoni backed himself into a corner when he cast Mikkelsen in Rebels. The voice has become so iconic and associated with the character that it’ll be weird if they go another route.

    Lars Mikkelsen is the only Thrawn, there is. Even audio books try to sound like his rebels version. He has the voice and cheeckbones for it. I wonder if Ahsoka will be his first appearance and they wait until Andor season 2 for his time in the empire. Will they only show Trawn in white unifrom in live action or would they also show him in grey uniform like in the comic.

    There is SW precedent for splitting roles out thus:

    Non-speaking role, tall height required, plus dark hair, cannot be fat.

    Mikkelson does the voice work.

    IT worked for Maul but he was only a cameo in Solo, they could have used ashley's voice for Ahsoka, but they didnt. I think either it Will all be Lars Mikkelsen like Katee with Bo katan or it Will be a recast. I hope Lars Mikkelsen rumor leak is true.

    Had to be, she is clearly supposed to have be Asian in Rebels
    I don't know if *that* many people are familiar enough with Rebels for it to be that iconic. Way more people would have watched the Mandalorian and will watch the other Live action shows. Still agree that he would be a great casting choice though

    I wonder if Sabine will appear in Mandalorian season 3 first as we get first glimpse or in Ahsoka and slowly build her up to the Mandalorians story.

    Iconic within the context of Thrawn himself as a character and his place in the franchise fandom. I’m not suggesting that the general audience has seen Rebels or even knows who or what a Thrawn might be.

    But I think if someone’s familiar with the character they’ve probably seen at least some of Rebels. Lucasfilm certainly made a big enough deal about back in 2016.

    Also, remember we're in the world of streaming, far easier access to all the TV /film material.

    While I don't think Thrawn is a household name like Luke and Vader where pretty much EVERYONE has at least heard of of them I think Thrawn is notorious enough in a bigger circle as sorta the titular non movie Villain.

    Let me ask you this, what do you think would get a bigger reaction from the casual viewer, Thrawn first appearance in Ahsoka, or a Snoke cameo? Because I think the latter would be a bigger deal for most non-forum going viewers.

    Probably, granted I honestly think Snoke might get some too given he's a movie character.
