Exclusive: While discussing Lamya’s Poem, Mena Massoud talks about his recent social media post that prompted fan speculation about a Star Wars role.
While discussing Lamya’s Poem with Screen Rant, Mena Massoud opened up about his recent social media post that prompted fan speculation about a possible Star Wars role. In March, Massoud sparked speculation with an Instagram post that featured a quote of young Jedi Ezra Bridger from Star Wars: Rebels. The speculation comes following the appearance of fellow Jedi Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian and teases of Star Wars: Rebels antagonist Grand Admiral Thrawn in the series.
With Lucasfilm building a larger storyline around The Mandalorian on Disney+ across multiple series, many fans speculate who may appear by looking to past series. One such series is Star Wars: Rebels, with fans speculating that The Mandalorian and its surrounding shows will address the animated series’ unanswered question, such as Jedi Ezra Bridger and Grand Admiral Thrawn’s ultimate fates. As such, when Massoud quoted the young Jedi in an Instagram post, the Star Wars fandom was set ablaze with theories that the actor would be taking on the role of the Jedi in an upcoming series. Now the actor has opened up about his viral post.
