“Ahsoka” Premieres Exclusively on Disney+ in August 2023
(Press Release) This weekend, at STAR WARS Celebration in London, Disney+ and Lucasfilm unveiled the thrilling teaser trailer for the highly anticipated Disney+ original series “Ahsoka,” starring Rosario Dawson in the title role. Set after the fall of the Empire, “Ahsoka” follows the former Jedi knight Ahsoka Tano as she investigates an emerging threat to a vulnerable galaxy.
As Disney begins a new era of Star Wars content the TV content is cranking up the live-action and animated content to cover the gaps between the various shows and link things up. With Ahsoka coming to fruition, we will start to see events from Rebels and likely Mandoverse coming into the story and bringing fan-favorite characters to live action. This trailer alone showed us Sabine Wren, Hera, and Thrawn. Ezra and others should be making an appearance as well.
In addition to Dawson, “Ahsoka” stars Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Hera Syndulla. The series is written by Dave Filoni, who executive produces alongside Jon Favreau, Kathleen Kennedy, Colin Wilson, and Carrie Beck. Karen Gilchrist is co-executive producer.
