Disney+'s Ahsoka Series - What We Know So Far

Since first appearing on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Ahsoka Tano has become a fan favorite in the universe. Anakin Skywalker's Padawan has come a long way from just learning the ropes of protecting the galaxy to becoming a central figure in taking out the Dark Side. It's why so many fans were ecstatic to hear that she would be entering the Star Wars live-action universe on season 2 of The Mandalorian, as portrayed by Rosario Dawson.

Ahsoka teamed up with the titular character to help liberate a village from a dastardly foe, making it clear that there were so many other stories left to explore in this universe. While many people thought the episode was setting her up to become a regular character on The Mandalorian, it actually was the beginning of her very own series, as confirmed on Disney Investor Day 2020. It's just one of the many Star Wars series set to debut on the streaming service within the coming years, and here's everything we know about the show so far. 

What's the release date for Star Wars: Ahsoka?

No release date has been announced for Star Wars: Ahsoka yet, but we can reasonably assume it will be one of the earlier Star Wars projects to come to fruition out of the numerous series that were announced by Lucasfilm. After all, the series already has its lead character cast, and considering how the project will intersect directly with Disney+'s current bread and butter, The Mandalorian, there's a good chance the studio will want to get this series off the ground sooner rather than later. 

As a result, it wouldn't be surprising to see the show drop on the streaming platform in early 2022. We know The Mandalorian season 3 will come out on Christmas 2021, meaning episodes will spill over into 2022 (via Collider). It's unlikely we'll see Ahsoka episodes the same time we're getting new Mandalorian, but it wouldn't be surprising if the events of season 3 led directly into the new series. As such, keep your eyes peeled for more live-action Ahsoka in 2022. 

Who's in the Star Wars: Ahsoka cast?

We already know Rosario Dawson, who portrayed Ahsoka in season 2, episode 5 of The Mandalorian, titled "The Jedi," will reprise the role for the upcoming series. No other casting announcements have been made yet, but there are some pretty good guesses as to who else we can expect to see. 

On The Mandalorian, Ahsoka was tracking down Grand Admiral Thrawn, so we can expect the character to function as the primary antagonist on the series. Additionally, considering that Star Wars: Ahsoka is set during the same time period as the events on The Mandalorian, we wouldn't be surprised if another team-up with Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) occurs, this time on Ahsoka's series. 

There's a handful of other Star Wars characters who could potentially make appearances, as well. Expect more casting announcements for the series to come out within the next few months. 

What's the plot of Star Wars: Ahsoka?

While details are presently sparse concerning what Star Wars: Ahsoka will be about, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect. On The Mandalorian, Ahsoka confronts Magistrate Morgan Elsbeth (Diana Lee Inosanto) and asks her where she can find Grand Admiral Thrawn. We're guessing Star Wars: Ahsoka will see her taking on various members of Thrawn's forces until she gets into a final showdown with the villain. 

The last time fans saw Thrawn was in the Star Wars Rebels finale, where the antagonist disappeared with Ezra Bridger. Not only will Star Wars: Ahsoka provide closure on Thrawn's arc, but it will likely give us a live-action Ezra that Ahsoka has to rescue. 

As of right now, it's unclear if the series will have a multiple-season arc in the same vein as The Mandalorian or if it will be more of a limited series. Either way, fans are undoubtedly excited to see more of live-action Ahsoka as well as the introduction of Thrawn in the flesh. The Force is strong with this series.
