Disney+’s Ahsoka director teases Star Wars Rebels character appearances

Dave Filoni began his Star Wars career in animation Star Wars: The Clone Wars film and series. Since then, several animated Star Wars characters have jumped into live action recently, and that trend shows no signs of slowing down.

After the success of Star Wars rebelsmany fans were desperate for a sequel and worried about the fate of Ezra Bridger and his found family, the Ghost Crew.

In late 2020, fans’ patience was rewarded when, meanwhile, Ahsoka Tano debuted in live action The Mandalorian Season 2. Surprisingly, she named Thrawn, a key antagonist in the animated series Star Wars rebels.

In a new interview with The Wrap, Star Wars exec and director Dave Filoni teased that some are familiar rebels Characters make their way to live action.

Filoni has been asked how often he hopes to bring his cartoon characters into live action. In a comment that will shock many, the director revealed that he “very rare” Think about it:

“Very rare. I know people think it’s the other way around, which fascinates me. I think there’s two ways to look at that, which is that, yes, they were animated characters, but to me, they’re just characters. I’m comfortable with these characters, I know them, I like them and I like seeing them around.”

Of course, the Lucasfilm exec touched on the differences between an actor playing a character “As a voice actor versus performing [a character] Being physically present on set as [the character],” Using the example of Bo Katan actress Katee Sackhoff:

“It changes when they’re suddenly in a different medium. Katee talked a bit about that, and the difference between portraying Bo Katan as the voice actor versus her physical portrayal and being on set as her – it’s a different vibe. I try to do it when it makes the most sense.”

Like when a gunslinger was needed “compete against some [their] sign on Boba Fett’s book,” The name Cad Bane emerged and with it the challenge of bringing it into a new medium:

“When we needed a gunslinger to go up against some of our characters in ‘Book of Boba Fett,’ Cad Bane’s name popped up. He’s so slim and gaunt in ‘The Clone Wars’. And if we don’t, is that all CG? How are we going to portray this? If we don’t think we can do this effectively, then we shouldn’t be doing it.”

However, by the looks of it, Filoni shared that it is him “very happy with those who passed by, tease that “There may or may not be more in it Ahsoka:”

“At the end of the day I was very happy with those who came across. There can be more to ‘Ahsoka’ if that’s your thing. If you’re excited about that, I’m just saying that one could probably have a few more, which makes sense by the way. As you know, I wrote it. You can’t blame me for that.”

The Ghost Crew rises in live action

The Ahsoka The series is slated for release on Disney+ in late 2023 and will feature a host of familiar faces.

In November 2021, Deadline announced that Natasha Liu Bordizzo had been cast as Sabine Wren in the upcoming series. And in May 2022 a short one Ahsoka Teaser was unveiled at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, giving attendees their first look at the actress.

Another trailer highlight was Hera Syndulla, voiced by Vanessa Marshall in the animated show.

Last year’s Star Wars Celebration footage featured a shot of the revolutionary leader from behind. In addition, popular Star Wars leaker Bespin Bulletin revealed last December that actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead had been cast in the role.

Despite this, nothing has been confirmed by Lucasfilm. With any luck, the chaotic but lovable droid Chopper will also make an appearance in the series.

Ahsoka It’s slated to hit Disney+ later this year and is rumored to release in late summer.
