The “+” portion of Mando + Panel at Star Wars Celebration turned out to be quite a treat for fans. After getting a full trailer for Season 3 of The Mandalorian, attention turned to the upcoming live-action Ahsoka series, which is currently in production. To the excitement of the crowd, it was confirmed that 3 fan-favorites (in addition to Ezra Bridger) from the animated Rebels series would make their live-action debuts in Ahsoka.
Rebel leader Hera Syndulla, her loyal droid Chopper and Mandalorian Sabine Wren will all appear in the show when it streams in 2023. In addition to Chopper making an appearance on the stage, actress Natasha Liu Bordizzo, who was linked to the role of Sabine in November, made her way on stage to join star Rosario Dawson. No casting was revealed for the roles of Hera or Ezra.
Ahsoka is set to continue the tale of Ahsoka Tano, one time Padawan of Anakin Skywalker, who left the Jedi order and became a major figure in the Rebellion against the Empire. The series is expected to follow her as she attempts to locate Grand Admiral Thrawn and Ezra Bridger, who were last seen disappearing into hyperspace in the series finale of Rebels.
