Ahsoka Season 1 Release Date, Cast, Plot, and Everything You Need to Know
Fans of Star Wars and a certain director have been pushing for a live-action Ahsoka TV show for years. Fans wanted a live-action series because the character went from being annoying in her first appearance to being a fan favourite in the great Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels shows.
When Rosario Dawson played Ahsoka in The Mandalorian, it was the first time we saw her in real life. As soon as she showed up, fans demanded a complete series of her excursions to tie up the unfinished story of her article.
After rumours, it was officially revealed that the series would happen or that Dave Filoni and John Faveau will be involved. Not only that, but Rosario Dawson had agreed to do the whole series, so we would finally get to discover what occurred to Ahsoka after Star Wars Rebels ended.
It's difficult to imagine that there was once a time when fans thought it was silly for Anakin Skywalker to have a padawan because it was never mentioned inside the live-action movies. In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, however, young Ahsoka won the hearts of fans as she changed from a proud student to a patient Jedi Knight (2008-2022).
When she left the Jedi Order to start a new life, many people thought that was the end of her journey. However, in Star Wars Rebels (2014-2018), she still chose to fight for good, even when she met her former master, who had become the evil Darth Vader.
Her fight with Vader ought to be the end of her journey, but she somehow avoided death and made her splendid live-action foray as In Mandalorian (2019-), even trying to make a brief appearance inside The Book of Boba Fett (2021).
With the fan favourite is a well-known name, her story will continue her very it using live-action show. Ahsoka (2023) is almost done filming, and we eventually got some lengthy details about her first-ever solo series. Here's everything we understand so far about Snips' next series adventure.
There are a lot of new Star Wars shows coming to Disney Plus, but one in particular stands out: The Mandalorian, which brings back Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker's apprentice who is now (sort of) a full-fledged Jedi.
We have a lot to catch up on with Ahsoka, especially since it's been a long time since we've seen her on The Clone Wars and a long time until she shows up in real life. So, what can we really look forward to when Star Wars: Ahsoka comes out? Here's what we know so far about Ahsoka's return.
Ahsoka Season 1 Release Date
At the moment, there's no official date for when Ahsoka will be out. The show is expected to start in 2023, and rumours say it will start in late 2023. This is because The Mandalorian Season 3 is the first Star Wars show on Disney+.
Ahsoka Season 1 Cast
The story takes place five years within a week of Return of a Jedi and after end of A Mandalorian Season 2. Ahsoka is searching for Grand Admiral Thrawn all over the galaxy. Thrawn is a famous villain in the Star Wars universe who has never been seen in real life. We don't know who will play him, but we really hope it's Lars Mikkelsen, who did play him throughout Star Wars Rebels. He is an experienced actor who could easily take on the role in real life.
When we talk about Rebels, we know that Eman Esfandi would then play Ezra Bridger on the show. Thrawn and Brigder disappeared at the end of the last episode of Star Wars Rebels, and it's likely that Ahsoka will try to find them.
"Ahsoka is a story that goes on and on. Dave Filoni talked to Vanity Fair as to what he wants to do with the series. He said that it is definitely moving toward a goal instead of being a bunch of small, separate adventures.
"That's what I want this same character should be doing, and I assume this is what fans want right now. They get along so well with her ". Filoni continued by saying "I've only lately started to realise all the kids who used to watch Clone Wars have grown older. They're very enthused about all of the things those who did grow up with, like they ought to be.
Ray Stevenson appears to be playing a mysterious bad guy on the show. The character is thought to be original one from after Return of the Jedi. Mary Elizabeth Winstead as well as Ivanna Sakhno are also big additions to the cast, but their roles haven't been revealed yet.
We have confirmation that Hayden Christensen will join the series, but we don't know if he will play Anakin or Darth Vader. This could be the best news of all. Since the show actually occurs five years within a week of Return of Jedi, we can only assume that it's through flashbacks.
Ahsoka Season 1 Trailer
Because the show is still in production, we didn't think we'd see any footage for a while. But some footage was shown for the first time at the panel for the show at Star Wars Celebration. Unfortunately, the sizzle reel wasn't shown to anyone who wasn't there. As expected, plot details could be kept secret, but it was confirmed that Hera Syndulla, the Twi'Lek pilot of a Ghost, and a few both these returning characters would be in the movie.
We also got a very brief first look during this exhibition in Disney's 2023 sizzle reel, which showed Ahsoka take off her hood before her next excursion hit the streaming service. The footage isn't a huge surprise, but it could mean that what a new trailer is coming soon.
Ahsoka Season 1 Plot
Like most recent Star Wars projects, plot details are now being kept to a minimum, although that doesn't mean humans don't have a decent idea as to where Ahsoka's story is heading next. Ahsoka's goal became apparent at the conclusion of her episode of The Mandalorian. After her fight to Morgan Elsbeth, Ahsoka made it apparent that she was after a larger fish: Grand Admiral Thrawn, the leader of the Chiss Empire and one of Star Wars Rebels' main bad guys.
Even though the Rebels had fought many Sith Lords and Inquisitors, Thrawn was among the most cruel and dangerous enemies they had ever faced. He pushed the squad to their physical and mental limits. The end of the show felt less as a conclusion and more like a cliffhanger because both Thrawn and Ezra Bridger, the main character of Rebels, disappeared into space.
So, if Ahsoka is right and Thrawn is still alive, there's a decent possibility that Ezra is still out there, too. This makes Ahsoka not only a natural extension of Tano's tale, but also direct follow-up to Star Wars Rebels.
Filoni told Empire, "I've got to tell you, it's exciting" (via StarWars.Net). "You can see yourself doing this for a lengthy moment. Then, once you're sitting there too and realise you have to do it, it's kind of shocking. I've been planning Ahsoka's adventure for one lot longer, and it's intriguing to observe how it's changed.
"Years ago, I would have never thought that a branch of the a tree could have any connection with a person like Din Djarin or a child who looks like Yoda. It taught me a lot about how other creative people, like Jon Favreau, can add so much depth and dimension to what you're doing." Little is known regarding Ahsoka and what her story will be about, and though Star Wars bosses had also said it will take place "in the same time period as The Mandalorian."
Filoni told Vanity Fair, "She seems to be, for lack of a better word, a master, as she is mostly on her own at this point." "At this point, she is really more like a wandering samurai. I've always said that she's getting to the Gandalf stage, in which she knows everything about the world and can assist others get through it. I think she's gotten there."
And he is happy with how the character has changed over time. We had seen her basically show up as a young, naive, rude, and aggressive padawan. Then, in Rebels, she is more like a traditional knight trying to figure how to fight a war.
"She has a lot of doubts as to what she desires to be, who she can be, or how her life has turned out so far. I think I've gone a step further with that now. If you see such a version of the main character, she looks like she's been through a lot and is tired of the world. She has seen a lot in her life." "She has lost a lot. She was forced to leave that Order, and she's just now finding her way "Dawson said yes.
When Tano first showed up in The Mandalorians "Chapter 13: The Jedi," she helped a poor village ruled by a cruel magistrate named Morgan Elsbeth (Diana Lee Inosanto). It turned that out Elsbeth knew where Grand Admiral Thrawn was because she was connected to the Empire. She had helped create the Imperial Navy. Ahsoka finally showed what she was up to when she told Elsbeth to tell the Jedi in which her "master" is.
There had been talk before about continuing Rebels in real life. Also when he tried to defend the show's ending, Filoni gave hints that this was the case. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Filoni said, "I've always thought that the best things end and then new stories start, there's no better way to end a story than to have two of my favourite actors ride off into the sunset. like so many cowboys or Indiana Jones have done. The story goes on as one thing will end and another one starts. That's a saga."
