The Expanse’s Wes Chatham has just been added to the show Ahsoka. Chatham (The Expanse, Hunger Games, Tenet) will play the right-hand man to Lars Mikkelsen’s Admiral Thrawn in the series.
Chatham is a late addition to the Ahsoka cast alongside David Tennant, who returns to the Star Wars universe to play the droid character Huyang in the series. Tennant previously voiced the character in Filoni’s animated version of the series and won a Daytime Emmy for his work on the show. Hayden Christensen is also rumored to return as Anakin Skywalker in the series.
Ahosak has enlisted a few of the franchise’s beloved directors, including Dave Filoni, Steph Green (“The Book of Boba Fett”), Geeta Patel (“The Mandalorian”) and Rick Famuyiwa (“The Mandalorian”). Joining the veteran “Star Wars” directors include Dawson, Peter Ramsey (“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”) and Jennifer Getzinger (“Mad Men”).
Filoni, who directed for the franchise’s “Rebels,” “The Clone Wars,” “The Mandalorian,” “The Book of Boba Fett” and “Tales of the Jedi,” has directed more than one episode in the series. But the director is staying quiet on how many episodes are in the new series and whether or not there are plans for a second season.
Franchise favorite composer, Kevin Kiner, who worked on “The Clone Wars,” “Rebels” and “The Bad Batch” animation productions, is returning to “Star Wars” for “Ahsoka.”
