Set after the fall of the Empire, Ahsoka follows the former Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano as she investigates an emerging threat to a vulnerable galaxy.
Ahsoka was developed by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni for Disney+. Filoni also serves as series writer for each of the eight episodes. The series is part of the Star Wars franchise and a spin-off from the series The Mandalorian, taking place in the same timeframe as that series and its other interconnected spin-offs after the events of Return of the Jedi, while also serving as a continuation to the animated series Star Wars Rebels.
The series stars Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano, reprising her role from The Mandalorian along with Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Hera Syndulla, Ray Stevenson as Baylan Skoll, Diana Lee Inosanto as Morgan Elsbeth, Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn, Eman Esfandi as Ezra Bridger, and David Tennant voicing Huyang.
Also appearing are Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker, Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma, Maurice Irvin as Senator Mawood, Jacqueline Antaramian as Senator Rodrigo, Nelson Lee as Senator Hamato Xiono, and Erica Duke as Gran Senator. Paul Darnell stars as the Inquisitor Marrok. Hera’s astromech droid C1-10P “Chopper” is set to appear in the series.
Ahsoka is set to premiere on Disney+ on August 22, 2023 at 9:00pm ET, with the first two episodes, and will consist of eight episodes in total. It is scheduled to release every Tuesday and conclude on October 3, 2023.
