Ray Stevenson (Punisher: War Zone, Thor, Vikings) has joined the cast of Disney+'s upcoming The Mandalorian spinoff, Ahsoka

This news follows the recent announcement that Natasha Liu Bordizzo will play a live-action take on Star Wars Rebels fan-favorite Sabine Wren. They join Rosario Dawson, reprising her The Mandalorian season 2 role as the titular force-wielder, and Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader. Birds of Prey actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead is on board in an undiclosed role.

Ukrainian actress Ivanna Sakhno is also set to play a mysterious new character created for the show.

No details on Stevenson's character were provided, but THR reports that he will be playing an Admiral of some description - though they stress that it will not be Star Wars Rebels villain Grand Admiral Thrawn!

In the closing moments of the Rebels series finale, Ahsoka and Sabine embarked on a mission to find Ezra Bridger after the young Jedi was seemingly sucked into a wormhole during his battle with Thrawn. Though these events weren't mentioned specifically in Tano's episode of The Mandalorian, there were a few hints that she might be searching for answers during her confrontation with Magistrate Morgan Elsbeth.

Bridger and Thrawn have yet to be cast. Ahsoka is rumored to begin shooting next summer for a 2023 premiere date.
