Genre queen Mary Elizabeth Winstead is heading to space! The 10 Cloverfield Lane, Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Death Proof, Birds of Prey and Sky High (aka one of the best superhero movies ever made) star has joined the cast of Star Wars: Ahsoka.
Plot details are – it should really go without saying – being kept locked up tight, a policy extends to any details about Winstead’s role. We do know that the series stars Rosario Dawson as the titular Jedi Knight, Ahsoka Tano (who made her live-action debut in The Mandalorian), with Hayden Christensen also reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker. They are joined by Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wrenn and Ivanna Sahkno in an undisclosed role.
Other Star Wars shows making their way to Disney+ right now include the upcoming season of The Mandalorian, a series about Obi-Wan Kenobi starring Ewan McGregor, a Cassian Andor series starring Diego Luna, and The Acolyte from Leslye Headland.
With production on Ahsoka due to start very soon, expect more casting details in the coming weeks.
