Who Will Be The New Face of Thrawn in Ashoka?

Thrawn won’t be portrayed by Lars Mikkelsen after all. For some, the real question is who will be the new voice of Thrawn on Ashoka as the voice actor’s distinct voice made the animated Star Wars: Rebels series character.  Mikkelsen was recently interviewed in the Express where he was asked if he wanted to revisit his character. After all rumors claim he has the role. When asked to definitively answer if he was to portray Thrawn in the Disney+ live action Ashoka, Mikkelsen answered. 

“I am aware of that, yes — Well, I haven’t had the offer. But yes sure.”

It’s a blow to some Star Wars fans due to his unique style in portraying Thrawn, but hope is not gone. Some outlets report the job still isn’t filled.

400+ Found 1977 Star Wars Action Figures Go To Auction

What ten-year-old boy in 1977 buys almost every manufactured Star Wars action figure in Star Wars nascent journey to becoming Americana? In truth, none. Kenner couldn’t produce them in time for a Christmas rush and used an ‘early bird’ certificate to claim a small set later.  By 1985 the toy line ended, but not without leaving kids and collectors in fits throughout that time. Yet somehow, someone assembled some of the most coveted and unique figures of all time curating a collection now worth in excess of $20,000 to be auctioned off on February 1, 2023, by Morphy Auctions. You can review all of the action figures in the previous link to the auction with an embedded downloadable PDF of the complete listing on pages 6-110!  It even includes Kenner factory shipping boxes and unopened boxes of Star Wars trading cards (chewing gum included). The original owner’s name has been withheld but he’s said to be from Chicago, Illinois, and a friend of the auction owner.
