AHSOKA Star Eman Esfandi Teases An Untold Story With Ezra Bridger: "I Can Say Nothing About That"

Ahsoka did what it promised by revealing what became of Ezra Bridger and Grand Admiral Thrawn following the events of Star Wars Rebels, but the series still left us with an awful lot of questions. 

There were some vague allusions to the two enemies going their separate ways once they arrived on Peridea, but there are huge gaps which surely need to be filled in at some point. Among them is that mysterious chain mail worn by the older Ezra as he hides out in this distant Galaxy. 

Plenty of fans are convinced that it was comprised of dog tags taken from Stormtroopers the Jedi had killed, thereby explaining why Thrawn's army was, well, dead. 

Some believe Heir to the Empire author Timothy Zahn will be enlisted to fill in the gaps with new novels and, while we wait and see on that, Ezra actor Eman Esfandi was recently asked about the chain mail during a Los Angeles Comic Con Ahsoka panel. 

"I can say nothing else about the chain mail," the actor bluntly replied. "I can say nothing about that." 

Something must be in the works and, after Diana Lee Inosanto recently confirmed she was aware of Morgan Elsbeth's past as a Nightsister while shooting The Mandalorian season 2, we'd bet on Ahsoka showrunner Dave Filoni having filled Esfandi in. 

At the same event, Esfandi and Natasha Liu Boridzzo (who played Sabine Wren) revealed that there was a lot of discussion on set about what their reunion would look like.

"It was funny, 'cause on the day we sort of discussed it," Boridzzo said. "We were like, what does feel right? It's almost such an epic moment you want to cry and run to the person, but then at the end of the day you just have to do what comes out naturally as Sabine and Ezra. They're just old friends who would be like, 'Hey, I casually gave up the Galaxy to find you, but hey!'"

Esfandi added, "No questions asked. 'Say, what's up dude, thanks for finding me.' It was very organic." Boridzzo then chimed in to say, "It's very Star Wars, the casual nature of something that should be so much more serious I think."

There are those who wanted more from this big reunion but Filoni decided against spending too much time on that or the answers he knows many fans were waiting on. Still, that's what a second season is for!
