Star Wars Ahsoka: What We Know About the Series

With a franchise as vast as Star Wars that has a massive catalogue of beloved characters, not even the most recognisable ones have a story quite like Ahsoka Tano. It’s hard to believe that there was a point in time when fans thought the idea of Anakin Skywalker having a padawan was preposterous since no such thing had ever even been mentioned in the live-action films. Yet, slowly but surely, young Ahsoka captured the hearts of the fandom, going from an arrogant learner into a patient Jedi Knight in Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008-2022). When she left the Jedi Order to have a new life, many assumed that was the end of her journey, and yet she still chose to fight the good fight in Star Wars Rebels (2014-2018), even coming face to face with her former master, now corrupted into the evil Darth Vader. Her duel with Vader also should have been the end of her journey, yet she somehow cheated death and finally made her glorious live-action debut in The Mandalorian (2019-Present), even making a brief appearance in The Book of Boba Fett (2021).

Now that the fan favourite has become a household name, her story is set to continue once again with her very own live-action series. Two and a half years after it was first announced, Ahsoka (2023) is almost here, and as Ahsoka and Disney are within our licencing portfolio, we finally got some long-awaited details for her first ever solo series, so here’s everything we know so far:

Is There a Trailer for Ahsoka?

When and Where Is Ahsoka Premiering?

Ahsoka will be arriving on Disney+ in August 2023.

When Does Ahsoka Take Place in the Star Wars Timeline?

Several decades after she joined the franchise in The Clone Wars, her story in Ahsoka will be her most recent adventure to date in terms of when it’s set. With Rosario Dawson continuing to play the titular role, Ahsoka is expected to take place some time after the events of her live-action debut in The Mandalorian Season 2, and presumably after her brief cameo in The Book of Boba Fett.

For those curious how this fits into the timeline of the films, this would place Ahsoka somewhere in between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, so after the fall of the Empire and before the rise of the First Order. However, those craving flashbacks showing Ahsoka’s early years in a live action Clone Wars may be getting just that, as there’s a certain sand-hating Jedi who has been confirmed to appear.

What is the Plot of Ahsoka?

Like pretty much every recent Star Wars project, plot details are being kept to a strict minimum, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a pretty good idea of where Ahsoka’s story is going next. Towards the end of her episode on The Mandalorian, Ahsoka’s goal became quite clear. After her duel with Morgan Elsbeth, Ahsoka made it clear that she was on the hunt for a bigger fish: Grand Admiral Thrawn, the Chiss Imperial leader and a major antagonist from Star Wars Rebels.

Who is in the Cast of Ahsoka?

Once again, Ahsoka will be brought to life by Rosario Dawson. Her warm reception from the rest of the community after her Mandalorian appearance seemed to confirm to Lucasfilm that she was the right choice. There is also a confirmed return of Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka’s former master as well as the man who would become Darth Vader. Given that Ahsoka takes place after Return of the Jedi, Anakin has been long dead at this point, meaning the most likely places we’ll be seeing him is in a Clone Wars flashback with Anakin and Ahsoka fighting off battle droids. Or perhaps we’ll even see a brief return to the duel between Vader and Tano.
