It’s been a long time coming, but The Mandalorian is soon to be not the only live-action Star Wars show on Disney Plus. Ahsoka Tano – best known from the animated show The Clone Wars – is getting her own standalone series within the next few years.
Ahsoka was brought from the world of animation to real life in The Mandalorian Chapter 13, The Jedi. If you’d like to know more about this live-action series, then keep on reading. We also have similar roundups for The Book of Boba Fett, Andor and Obi-Wan Kenobi – all other upcoming shows in the Star Wars universe.
When will Ahsoka air?
No official date has yet been given for Ahsoka. So far, the only two shows with confirmed release times in the Star Wars universe are The Book of Boba Fett (season 1) which will be December 2021, and The Mandalorian (season 3) which will be in early 2022.
Based off of that, we believe that Ahsoka will also air sometime in 2022. Once we have more information, we’ll update this article.
Who are the cast and crew?
Rosario Dawson will be reprising her role as Ahsoka Tano from The Mandalorian. Originally, the character was voiced by Ashley Eckstein in Clone Wars and Rebels, but Dawson has generally been received well so far.
The Mandalorian's Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni will both serve as executive producers, whilst Filoni will also act as a writer on the show.
No other casting details have yet been announced, though the Radio Times has reported that Filoni has hinted that Mandalorian graffiti artist Sabine Wren from Star Wars Rebels may join her on her travels – though this isn't official yet.
Plot details about Ahsoka are quite thin at the moment, but we do know that it will be set in the same time period as The Mandalorian.
Ahsoka mentioned searching for Grand Admiral Thrawn (AKA Mitth'raw'nuruodo), a villain probably best known from Rebels who disappeared along with Jedi-in-training, Ezra Bridger. Therefore, we suspect that Thrawn will be the main antagonist of the series.
We also imagine that we may get more details and backstory to Ahsoka’s time as a young apprentice of former Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, and her subsequent battle with him as Darth Vader.
Ahsoka will allegedly tie into another new Star Wars show, Rangers of the New Republic. We also imagine that we haven’t seen the last of her and her storyline overlapping with Mando’s.
