Who Plays Ezra Bridger In Disney+'s Ahsoka?

The trailer for the Disney+ original "Ashoka" included plenty of hidden details and callbacks for fans who came to know and love the character of Ashoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) from her time in the animated series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and "Star Wars: Rebels."

For "Rebels" fans in particular, this trailer is chock full of exciting cameos from some of the series' most beloved characters: including the revolutionary Hera Syndulla (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), the Mandalorian Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo), and series lead Ezra Bridger, who appears only on a brief hologram message and is played by actor Eman Esfandi (via IMDB). Esfandi has been acting across both film and television since 2018 when he starred in the Robert Rodriguez-directed "Red 11" (a movie based on Rodriguez's own experience selling his body to pay for his early filmmaking career).

Esfandi's other roles include that of Apollo in "Phaedra," Ismail in "The Inspection," and Barry in Will Smith's "King Richard." As such, there's no question that his performance as Ezra Bridger will be Efandi's most prolific role to date — though it remains to be seen just how much he actually appears in the story.

It seems like Ezra is still missing in Ashoka

Fans of "Star Wars: Rebels" will know that Ezra Bridger's fate was left up in the air after the series finale of "Rebels" in which Ezra (voiced by Taylor Gray) and Grand Admiral Thrawn (voiced by Lars Mikkelsen) were thrown into hyperspace by a purrgil and disappeared into the Unknown Regions of the galaxy.

Thus, the series ended with Ashoka Tano (voiced by Ashley Eckstein) and Sabine Wren (voiced by Tiya Sircar) venturing out into the unknown to search for Ezra and bring him safely back home, and unfortunately, they don't seem to have made much progress since we last saw them.

As mentioned, Ezra Bridger appears only sparsely in the trailer for "Ashoka," shown on a small hologram being watched by Sabine Wren. From how she watches this hologram, it seems as though Ezra is still missing after all these years.

Coupled with the fact that Eman Esfandi is currently only listed as appearing in one episode of "Ashoka," it would seem as though the team still has a long way to go if they want to bring Ezra home – and it will be interesting to see how Ezra's storyline factors into "Ashoka" once the series is in full swing.
