Star Wars: Aladdin Star Mena Massoud Reacts to Ezra Bridger Casting Following Rumored Involvement

With Ezra Bridger confirmed to be played by Eman Esfandi in Star Wars: Ahsoka, formerly rumored actor and Aladdin star Mena Massoud has weighed in on the problem, confirming there is never any significant momentum on the chance. Rumors of Massoud’s casting came in 2021, with the actor himself then going to share social media marketing posts that offered teases that his casting was a likelihood. Given the type of secrecy around Star Wars projects, along with Massoud’s fascination with the role, his only reactions to casting reports were deflecting and coy, with him now addressing he never progressed from the original casting stage. Star Wars: Ahsoka is likely to premiere on Disney+ next year.

“Glad the rumors will minimize now,” Massoud shared on Twitter. “Never had a good shot at it unfortunately (1 self-tape months ago) but just wasn’t designed for me I assume. Can’t deny the dude looks the same as Ezra. Hope it’s done justice!”

Audiences first met Ezra Bridger in Star Wars Rebels in 2014, with four seasons of this series seeing him turn into a beloved figure in the galaxy far, a long way away. With that series via Dave Filoni and unfolding at a compelling amount of time in the Star Wars canon, the series itself earned a separate following, not merely for the ways that it incorporated iconic characters and components of other stories, also for the compelling narratives which were entirely original.

Ezra, similar to the animated character Ahsoka Tano, has been rumored to be arriving at live-action for a long time, with Rosario Dawson debuting the live-action Ahsoka in Season 2 of The Mandalorian. With that appearance featuring the reference to Grand Admiral Thrawn, the Rebels villain who seemingly died when Ezra made a devastating sacrifice, speculation has been brewing for a long time that Ezra was on his solution to live-action.

Before Massoud’s name was in the mix, The Haunting of Bly Manor star Rahul Kohli trolled fans on social media marketing with posts that both teased he was already involved with that project, while also hinting he was merely campaigning for the role. Following a couple of weeks of such posts, Kahul came clean concerning the ruse, shutting down any rumors of such casting in the years since.

It’s currently unknown how significant a presence Ezra will undoubtedly be in the brand new series, with some theories igniting that Ahsoka and Sabine Wren will spend the growing season searching for Ezra instead of fully incorporating him in to the plot.
