There’s been a lot of Star Wars news at the moment, which is to be expected after Lucasfilm dropped the final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker, and now we’re hearing that Brie Larson is being eyed to play Ahsoka Tano in an upcoming picture set in a galaxy far, far away.
Ahsoka Tano is a character that fans of the Star Wars series will be very familiar with. She’s a very interesting person indeed who frankly deserves to be put on the big screen.
She was Anakin Skywalker’s padawan and was very gifted in the Force, however, she ended up refusing the Jedi Council’s offer to rejoin the Order, and opted to depart in search of a new path instead.
Simply put, Ahsoka is one of the best Star Wars characters ever and I’d really love to see her be brought to the big screen, and I think Brie Larson would be an interesting choice for the role.
Would Brie Larson make a good Ahsoka Tano in a Star Wars movie?
This rumour comes courtesy of We Got This Covered who were informed by one of their sources that Kevin Feige could be looking to bring the Captain Marvel star to his movie set in the galaxy far, far away.
It’s still not certain what Kevin Feige’s Star Wars movie will be or when it’ll be set, but if this rumour about him wanting to use Ahsoka Tano in his movie, then it would be set sometime between the prequels and the original Star Wars saga.
We Got This Covered also reported that Larson is a huge Star Wars fan and made her love of the franchise very clear to Disney and Kevin Feige, so they might end up being inclined to cast her in one of their movies.
