STAR WARS: AHSOKA Adds Ivanna Sakhno To Cast

Pacific Rim: Uprising actress Ivanna Sakhno has been cast opposite Rosario Dawson and Natasha Liu Bordizzo in the Disney+ series Star Wars: Ahsoka. A spinoff from the hit show The Mandalorianthe series chronicles the continuing adventures of Jedi warrior Ahsoka Tano; it stars Dawson as the titular character, while Bordizzo takes on Sabine Wren, a character previously confined to the animated realm in Star Wars Rebels. 

Deadline, who broke the news, report that Sakhno will play a newly created character, though there is no further information as to who they might be. The series is currently looking to begin production in March of next year and is also expected to see Hayden Christensen reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker (though most likely in flashbacks, given the timeline).

Sahko is best known for Uprising, The Spy Who Dumped Me, and for this year's horror-thriller Let It Snow

For now though, Star Wars fans can look forward to the imminent release of The Book of Boba Fett.
