After the last EPIC episode of The Mandalorian, the Star Wars fandom is buzzing with excitement and awe at how amazing it was. This is mostly because it brought to life (finally) one of the most beloved Star Wars franchise characters in Ahsoka Tano played masterfully by actress Rosario Dawson. And it also gave fans some interesting possible plot theories to discuss namely will they bring Thrawn to live action. And WHO will be the Jedi that answers Grogu’s call through the force when he gets to Tython?
So I have also been debating this in my head and thought it would be fun to open up to my readers for their opinions on these two questions. As for who could play Thrawn, there is a list of actors with the skill and the look to play Thrawn. Benedict Cumberbatch is only one but I’ve seen others such as:
Michael Fassbender who is an extremely talented actor and could totally pull off Thrawn:
And Lars Mikklesen who just happens to be the voice actor for Thrawn has been circulating as a possibility (but not sure if he is an actor as well)
And finally who will be the Jedi that comes to Grogu on Tython? This is by far my favourite choice (obviously because I love Luke Skywalker) and recreated by one of my favourite digital artist’s Boss Logic:
Fans are serious about actor Sebastian Stan taking up the role of a young Luke Skywalker but that is all just fanfare and has been for years. Other Jedi that are being discussed via social media:
Ezra Bridger (because it ties in nicely with the Rebels time line and Thrawn story and also Ahsoka and Sabine’s story)
And of course, Obi-Wan Kenobi who we know is getting his own streaming TV series:
How exciting is all of this for us Star Wars fans? It’s amazing to see Twitter and other social media discussions lighting up with wonderful and interesting debate. It’s nice to see the fandom finally moving beyond (some of) the toxicity of the past and looking ahead to the amazing future Star Wars has for its fans.
Let me know in the comments what your thoughts are as I am excited to discuss this with my readers and fellow Star Wars fans!
Stay safe out there, keep creating and I’ll catch you tomorrow!
