        It wasn’t announced like July 20 21 or 22, that Lars Mikkelsen has been confirmed for the role of Grand Admiral Thrawn. A cool as it would be to see Cumberbatch’s take on the blue dude, the voice actor will be fine. Especially if they just put him in a face mocap CGI mask which will likely be what happens. Love action Aladdin bee confirmed as Ezra. CONFIRMED. Article is only one day old and already OUTDATED.

    Cumberbatch as Thrawn?
    I’d be down with that!
    Larson as Mara Jade?
    No thanks. She’s too wooden and stiff.
    ScarJo would be better!

    Benedict Cumberbatch as Thrawn seems fine… a bit too young for the time period but not by too much. Great actor too.

    Brie Larson as Mara Jade Skywalker is a horrible miscasting though. Mara Jade Skywalker is supposed to be likeable and Brie has an army of haters. Worse Brie fails to ever convey all of Mara’s subtleties. Mara is a very vulnerable character who starts to question how badly she was misled. While all Brie can do is act like the most superior person in the room they’re basically the exact opposite personality.

    1. Yo

      @JAY, This is extremely accurate. I don’t understand Disney’s casting with Larson…

      1. Terry

        Scarlet Johansson would be a better Mara Jade

    2. Don

      I like the idea of Cumberbatch as Thrawn but Brie Larson as Mara Jade? Nah, she can’t act and she sucked as Captain Marvel. Try these:

      Natalie Dormer
      Rose Leslie
      Kaya Scodelario
      Alice eve
      Sophie Turner
      Zoe Saldana (If RDJ can play a black guy, why can’t she play a whiter version of herself ??)

      Any of these are better options than Brie Larson. She can’t even do a decent car commercial.

      1. Dirk

        So we like GOT do we…jesus

      2. Ranger

        Right she’s an academy award winning actress and they’ve all won… Well nothing at all. Haters gonna hate, everyone has them can’t make casting decisions based on that

        1. BK

          BRIE LARSON IS AN AMAZING CAPT MARVEL!
          MARA JADE IS MY FAVE CHARACTER FROM STAR WARS THAT HAS NOT APPEARED IN THE FILMS.
          BRIE LARSON AS MARA JADE = MAKES MY HEART SMILE IN ANTICIPATION! BRILLIANT CASTING!

    3. mike

      agreed. she’d ruin mara jade skywalker for me, but he would actually do a great thrawn

    4. Kevin

      You clearly never watched her Oscar winning performance in Room. Definitely a role in which she shows a great deal of vulnerability. I think it’s unfortunate that Captain Marvel wasn’t better edited. If they had simply run the story in chronological order instead of jumping around and making her background all mysterious, it would have served the story and her character’s personality so much better. She’d have been a much more likable character and the story would have struck a better chord.

  4. Jeff M

    Lars Mikkleson will play Thrawn. This is the way!

  5. Hayrol

    No body wants to see Brie Larson as Mara Jade. She would be terrible in that role. Mara was a force sensitive former spy for the Emperor so, as another comment stated, perhaps someone like Scarlett Jo who has played Black Widow would be better. Mara is essentially jedi Black Widow. I suggest to check out Michelle C. Smith on YouTube. She is already a bada** with a lightsaber, a trained stunt person, and red headed..

  6. JT

    Not a fan of recasting! Why break what’s working? Are ya’ll tripping over dollars to pick up pennies???

    1. gmk

      I have to agree with JT. What began as typically Saturday morning cartoons with extremely limited budgets always seemed like some sort of coo when they would actually get the live-action actor to provide the cartoon character voice.
      I think it is fine to look at animated series (and video games as well) as an alternative reality where you don’t expect big names to appear on the voice credits.
      Toy Story was one of the few animations that featured an all-star cast of voices and I would have to argue vigorously that Toy Story could have been just as good with alternate voicers.
      I suppose we can somewhat credit Disney/Pixar with putting the extra cash into animation to bring these recognizable voices into the audio realm of animation, but it is arguable whether it really makes that much of a difference. IMHO

  7. Tutor

    English language …. Not your strong point Andrew.

  8. unscented

    If you knew how much I care…you would cry!

  9. Michael

    Exactly no one had been recast.

    1. Susanne

      Doctor strange
      Cumberstrange

  10. Joe Cake

    Brie Larson cannot act. Not even slightly. She doesn’t need to be ruining star wars movies too.

    1. Primogen

      Brie Larson’s acting is so bad, she won a Best Actress Academy Award.

      1. Cage

        So you’re point is that insiders liked her.. so that somehow equates to her being good at acting?

        Look through the plethora of comments who couldn’t stand her character.. but I guess the fans opinions don’t matter if Hollywood tells you to think differently.

        1. those insiders being the film industry itself, including actors and others who work on films.

          So basically, her peers.

      2. Finn G

        The award means so little these days. Larsen is a pathetic hack. No interested.

    2. Cory

      Amen to that. Hollywood insiders may drool over Brie but fans showed their disgust with the Capt Marvel character through the countless critical reviews from the avg person.

      Some will just appeal to authority and say “Brie is so good bc incestuous Hollywood thinks so” but those people ignore anything they do not want to hear/see.

      1. Rahm

        Yeah. The movie only made over a billion dollars. They really showed their hate for it with their money.

  11. Primogen

    Nonsense! It doesn’t take much time to do voice-over recordings. Many actors have done so while filming movies or televisions series.

  12. Tony Miller

    ??‍? Brie is not a good likable actress, i could of died in peace without watching her on the MCU! Now she wants to ruin Star Wars for me too!???‍♂️…I hope it’s just hot air, and not actual news, but if she does…..I’m moving my viewing hours, money and art to DC! And give Batman a second chance!! ?????⚡?????✒?

  13. Bone

    Give it up. We don’t want Brie Larson near Star Wars.

  14. Johnny M.

    Exactly, it’s just a Right-Wing snowflakes wet dream every time they talk about the removal of Brie Larson. Who is perfect for the role & I hope they go back to her mohawk with a mask look?????

    1. DARREN GRIFFIN

      Wow somebody’s got it bad.

      1. Michael Rubino

        The girl who wrote this is part of the Republican cult.

    2. M

      Hey! Big right winger here that always thought Brie was perfect as Captin Marvel. Of course, she’s just perfect to begin with

  15. Rahm

    So many children who don’t understand they aren’t the center of the universe.

    1. Jesse Frank

      It wasn’t announced like July 20 21 or 22, that Lars Mikkelsen has been confirmed for the role of Grand Admiral Thrawn. A cool as it would be to see Cumberbatch’s take on the blue dude, the voice actor will be fine. Especially if they just put him in a face mocap CGI mask which will likely be what happens. Love action Aladdin bee confirmed as Ezra. CONFIRMED. Article is only one day old and already OUTDATED.

  16. Bob

    Mara Jade is an amazing character. I’d hate to see them ruin this character with an actress like Bree Larson. So annoying

  17. Finn g

    Low value speculative idiocy.
    Cummerbund is a well respected screen actor w/ little need for TV. Larsen is D list hack.

    1. Michael Rubino

      Brie has an Oscar, what have you done?

  18. Jesse Frank

    It wasn’t announced like July 20 21 or 22, that Lars Mikkelsen has been confirmed for the role of Grand Admiral Thrawn. A cool as it would be to see Cumberbatch’s take on the blue dude, the voice actor will be fine. Especially if they just put him in a face mocap CGI mask which will likely be what happens.

  19. So this popped up and I was like NO WAY then I searched it up on a few different plat forms and it’s false so don’t show me anything else that ain’t true

  20. Robin Besson

    Miss Larson is a beacon of for the thousands of young white girls who are held in slavery in his country

  21. Michael Rubino

    Yea the girl who writes these is a bored human.

  22. John W D

    Can people stop hiring Larson so she can fade into obscurity? I don’t know who the people are who are asking for her to play MJ, but I have never met one.

  23. Leap Of Faith

    Thats quite the leap and makes no 0 sense? The only way it would have anything to do with Star Wars, is it it meant they was on that project when the what if voice recording was done….
