The Disney+ service presented a teaser trailer for a new series in the Star Wars universe – Ahsoka. This is another spin-off to The Mandalorian, which tells the story of the Togruta Jedi Ahsoka Tano.
Ahsoka is a fairly popular character in the Star Wars universe. She first appeared in the animated film Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008), then in all 7 seasons of the series Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008-2014; 2020), in the series Star Wars Rebels (2014-2018), the series The Mandalorian (2020), The Book of Boba Fett (2022) and the miniseries Tales of the Jedi (2022). And this is not counting numerous comics and books, the heroine of which was Ahsoka Tano. Ahsoka is now widely considered to be the best female character in all of Star Wars.
In the series Star Wars: Ahsoka, as in The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, the role of Ahsoka will be played by actress Rosario Dawson (Daredevil, Luke Cage, Sin City). Hayden Christensen is set to return to the role of Ahsoka’s teacher Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader. In addition, Ukrainian Ivanna Sakhno, as well as actresses Natasha Liu Bordizzo and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, played in the series.
Star Wars: Ahsoka is scheduled to premiere on Disney+ in August 2023.
