Premiere: TBD 2023
During the Disney Investor Day on December 10, 2020, we got confirmation of an Ahsoka Tano series, after the character made her first live-action appearance on Chapter 13 of The Mandalorian. Rosario Dawson will return to play the former Jedi in a series that will be developed by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni.
With the possibility of introducing characters such as Ezra Bridger, Grand Admiral Thrawn, or Sabine Wren still on the horizon, the first major addition to the cast is Hayden Christensen, reprising the role of Anakin Skywalker. Whether he will get to play Anakin before or after his turn to the dark side is yet to be confirmed.
Confirming the rumors that the storyline would follow Ahsoka as she met up with Sabine Wren (as seen in the Star Wars Rebels series finale), Natasha Liu Bordizzo was confirmed to be playing the Mandalorian warrior in the series. Besides the potential of being one of the best additions to live-action Star Wars, in line with Ahsoka herself, Sabine’s history also allows her to eventually cross paths with The Mandalorian‘s storyline as she’s closely connected to the Darksaber Din Djarin is seen wielding by the end of season 2.
In late November 2021, a trade report announced that Ivanna Sakhno had been added to the cast, in an original, as of yet undisclosed, role. In early 2022 Ray Stevenson was confirmed to be playing an antagonist role in the series.
Following initial reports that the show would start production in late 2021, it was later rumored that it would instead start shooting in April 2022.
Director Peter Ramsey, of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse fame, was attached to the project in April 2022 with The Mandalorian director Bryce Dallas Howard hinting that she could also be involved with the series.
Following a Vanity Fair issue devoted to the future of Star Wars, it was confirmed that the series would begin streaming in 2023, following The Mandalorian‘s third season. During Star Wars Celebration 2022 it was confirmed that a least three other Star Wars: Rebels characters, besides Sabine Wren, would be appearing in the show. Footage shown at the event hinted at both Hera Syndulla and Ezra Bridger with C1-10P a.k.a. Chopper going as far as showing up on stage at the Ahsoka panel.
The show found its Ezra Bridger in September 2022 as Eman Esfandi, through a trade report, was announced as portraying the Force-sensitive former Jedi Padawan in the upcoming series.
