After the action-packed conclusion of The Mandalorian season 3, all eyes are now turning to Ahsoka as the next episode in the Star Wars saga to air on Disney Plus.
In the second season of Mando, Rosario Dawson will reprise her role as the legendary Jedi, which she played for the first time in Dave Filoni’s animated series The Clone Wars. Dawson then brought the character into the live-action world during the second season of Mando.
The two shows will continue to be connected; for example, the penultimate episode of The Mandalorian season 3 will refer to Grand Admiral Thrawn, who will play the primary antagonist role in this spin-off.
Fans of the expanded universe will be familiar with Thrawn, who is set to take over as Filoni’s main antagonist after the apparent death of Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) at the end of The Mandolorian season 3.
Lars Mikkelsen is confirmed to be reprising his villainous role, having previously voiced the character in Star Wars: Rebels. In addition, the starry cast includes familiar franchise figures David Tennant, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Hayden Christensen.

Ahsoka Released Date?
At Star Wars Celebration 2023, which took place in London, England, Lucasfilm finally ended months of rumors and speculation by announcing that the highly anticipated series will premiere on Disney+ in August of 2023. Dave Filoni has stated that production on the show will begin in August, but we still need to set a specific date for when production will start in August. We are holding out hope that it is early.
Since it has been the latter for the majority of the live-action Star Wars TV shows on Disney+, we’d put our money on a weekly release schedule for the show despite the fact that it has not been confirmed whether it will be released all at once or if it will be a weekly release. However, it has been confirmed that it has not been verified.
Is there a trailer for the Ahsoka series?
Yes! At Star Wars Celebration 2023, the first teaser trailer for Ahsoka was presented to the public.
Watch it down here:
At Star Wars Celebration 2023, the first trailer for the full-length version of Ahsoka was shown to the public. In the beginning, Ahsoka is seen exploring a desolate planet while giving a warning that “something’s coming.” The next scene depicts Ahsoka exploring what seems to be the ruins of a temple to learning more about the sinister presence that she has been sensing there.
After that, we hear a warning from Baylan Skoll about war and power as an unidentified force-user appears to fight her way onto an imperial ship while wielding an orange lightsaber and wearing a Padawan braid. Although a full shot of Thrawn was featured in the version of the trailer shown to those in attendance, the first time we see Thrawn is in the official trailer, which gives us our first look at the back of his head. Mon Mothma is played by Genevieve O’Reilly once more, and she appears in the trailer.
One more trailer will likely be released before the show is available. Comic-Con is probably a good suggestion as to when we’d see the trailer, but the team at Disney may keep it under wraps until approximately a week before, as was the case with Obi-Wan. This was the case with the original Star Wars film.
How many episodes will there be of Ahsoka?
It has been established that there will be eight episodes in the series Ahsoka.
The upcoming prequel series to The Mandalorian has yet to reveal whether or not it will have additional seasons.
Dave Filioni, who also helped create Ahsoka, will be responsible for writing all of the episodes and directing three of them.
In addition to Rick Famuyiwa and Jennifer Getzinger, Geeta Patel, Steph Green, and Peter Ramsey are some of the other directors who have helmed episodes for the series
