Ahsoka is a new live-action Star Wars series coming to Disney+ in 2023. It will focus on the beloved character Ahsoka Tano, first introduced in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Ahsoka was Anakin Skywalker's Jedi padawan during the Clone Wars, but left the Jedi Order disillusioned before it fell. She later became a key figure in the early Rebel Alliance against the Galactic Empire.
The Ahsoka series will take place around 5 years after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and the fall of the Empire. It will explore Ahsoka's adventures as she continues to fight for good in the galaxy in the aftermath of the Rebel victory over the Empire. The show will reveal what Ahsoka has been up to and how she has evolved since we last saw her in Star Wars Rebels.
Rosario Dawson will reprise her role as Ahsoka from The Mandalorian. The series is expected to tie-in with storylines and characters from other live-action Star Wars shows on Disney+, creating a connected on-screen universe. Hayden Christensen is slated to return as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader in flashback scenes with Ahsoka, which will be thrilling for fans to see their former master-padawan relationship explored in live-action.
Other key characters who may appear include Rebel spymaster Bail Organa, Clone Captain Rex, Jedi like Ezra Bridger and Luke Skywalker, and underworld figures like the Pike syndicate crime family. The show will visit various planets and locales across the Star Wars galaxy as Ahsoka continues her adventures.
Dave Filoni, acclaimed writer, director and producer of previous animated Star Wars shows is serving as executive producer and overseeing the writing. The direction, tone and production value is expected to be on par with The Mandalorian, Obi-Wan Kenobi and other live-action Star Wars shows on Disney+.
Ahsoka has long been a fan favorite character in the Star Wars universe. She has a complex history starting as a headstrong padawan who matured into a wise and noble warrior. Her journey of disillusionment and finding a new purpose outside the Jedi Order gives her strong character development. Fans are eager to see more of Ahsoka's personal tale unfold on screen.
The mystic powers of the Force and lightsaber action will surely be highlights as Ahsoka encounters new friends and foes. With the beloved Ahsoka as the lead character and connections to a wider Star Wars story, the show promises to be an exciting addition to the ever-expanding television universe. It will appeal to longtime fans while welcoming new viewers into the rich saga of that galaxy far, far away.
