We may soon learn more about Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s character in the Ahsoka series, if recent rumors turn out to be true.

Ahsoka seems to be the talk of the galaxy. After the short Disney Plus video promotion last week which teased a few shots of the upcoming series, fans have been speculating about who will be joining Rosario Dawson in the live-action Ahsoka show.

One such speculation is what role actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead will play. In May, Ewan McGregor confirmed that she would be a part of Ahsoka in his Vanity Fair spotlight for Obi-Wan Kenobi. “My partner, Mary, is doing that Star Wars series with Rosario and she’s about to start,” he revealed.

Since that information dropped, fans have been clamoring to know who Winstead could be portraying. At Star Wars celebration, an exclusive teaser for Ahsoka was shown. Fans were ecstatic to see a shot of Hera Syndulla, the captain of the Ghost in Star Wars: Rebels from behind, confirming that the character would be in the show. It hasn’t taken much for fans to theorize that Winstead could be playing the fearless rebel in Ahsoka.

According to Bespin Bulletin, those speculations could be correct. They report that their sources have said that Mary Elizabeth Winstead is indeed playing Hera Syndulla. If this rumor is true, the Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey and Scott Pilgrim star could be portraying one of the most beloved rebel leaders in Star Wars.

I, for one, am excited to see whatever role Winstead ends up playing. And if she does play Hera, even better. I sure won’t say no to another powerhouse actor playing a strong female rebel leader.

Ahsoka will release in 2023 on Disney Plus.
