As part of the exciting expansion of the Star Wars universe in the wake of the upcoming trilogy. Ahsoka’s new series comes to Disney + with Rosario Dawson. Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan during the Clone Wars was a key character in the animated story of Star Wars. As it consolidates its successful transition to the series, Lucasfilm and character creator Dave Filoni will continue their story on the small screen with a new show.
Ahsoka Tano, who officially debuted in The Mandalorian, provided pertinent information about baby Yoda, whose real name is Grogu. Although he did not take the boy to train, contrary to Din Djarin’s plans. She has set the clan of the two on a new path that will help Baby Yoda determine his future. Ahsoka may have fulfilled her role in the history of the Mandalorians. But that doesn’t mean that he just disappears into the dark. Ahsoka’s episode of “The Jedi” bears a striking resemblance to a clandestine pilot from her own project. And shortly after, Lucasfilm confirmed that she is indeed at the helm of a new series.
In addition to the long Obi-Wan Kenobi series. And new episodes like Rogue Squadron and Lando, Ahsoka will be one of the most exciting cornerstones of a new era of Star Wars, with content focused on expanding the universe that could become legends in the same way that the Mandalorian did. Here’s everything we know so far about the first season of Disney + Ahsoka.
What Is The Release Date Of Season 1 Of Ahsoka On Disney +?
When Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy showed up on Disney Investor Day. To discuss the future of space opera and other projects in development at the studio, she mentioned 10 new projects for Star Wars. Due to time constraints, she was unable to say more about each project. For the Disney + Ahsoka series, she didn’t share any details other than simple confirmation that she is in progress. At the same time, she also introduced the logo of the series, which may change over time.
Ahsoka currently has no release date and Lucasfilm is understandably delaying the announcement of this news. Given the uncertainty at that time due to various factors, including the coronavirus pandemic. That said if production can finally get back to normal. The release date for Ahsoka’s first season on Disney + may be set for 2022, either after the Obi-Wan Kenobi series or the third season of The Mandalorian.
What Story Will Follow The Ahsoka Tano Series?
It should be noted that Ahsoka’s series had been known for a long time before she debuted in The Mandalorian. According to her reports, she will play the characters of the Star Wars Rebels, Hera, Zeb, and the trusty ghost droid, Chopper, continuing her efforts to find the missing Ezra Bridger. It’s a good clue given Ahsoka’s last chronological appearance before meeting Din and Baby Yoda in The Mandalorian.
As well as helping Mando better understand Grogu, his past, and his potential future. The ongoing Star Wars series has also revealed that former Jedi Togruta is searching for Grand Admiral Thrawn who jumped into hyperspace with Ezra at the end of Star Wars Rebels. Since the first season of Ahsoka will take place around the same time as the Mandalorian. His narrative will most likely revolve around his pursuit of the tactician Chiss who appears to be planning something evil that might be different from what Moff Gideon is doing. It could also be the link between Ahsoka’s series and another upcoming Star Wars series, Rangers of the New Republic.
What Do We Know About Casting?
So far Rosario Dawson is the only person confirmed for the Ahsoka series. But assuming the series revolves around her finding her villain, the casting of Grand Admiral Thrawn is imminent. Depending on when Lucasfilm plans to start production on the Disney + project. they may already be calmly considering their options for the role. The fan-favorite villain isn’t the only animated character Ahsoka can bring into season one, as his pursuit of Grand Admiral Thrawn may be tied to his earlier efforts to find Ezra. Ahsoka’s series could also feature versions of him and Sabine Wren.
