As the Disney+ Star Wars universe continues to expand and include new characters from other forms of media, fan speculation continues to run rampant as to the best actors to bring these icons to live-action.
Last month, a report circulated from Kessel Run Transmissions claiming that Aladdin’s Mena Massoud was being eyed as Disney’s frontrunner to take the role of Star Wars Rebels’ Ezra Bridger in the Rosario Dawson-led Ahsoka series on Disney+.
Under a month later, Massoud has shared an image on Instagram of his recent muscular transformation. But more interesting, the image is accompanied by an Ezra Bridger quote from Star Wars: Rebels, seemingly teasing that Massoud may have been cast to take the role in live-action
Hey, just so you know, when I escape I won’t hurt any of you.”
Mena Massoud has previously shared his interest in joining the iconic sci-fi franchise, and given the actor’s existing affiliation with Disney given the popularity of the 2019 Aladdin adaptation, he seems like a likely choice for the role of Ezra.
