Disney+ Ahsoka series: trailer, release date, cast

One of the latest Star Wars Disney+ series is on the way, and it’s about a character many superfans already know and love: Ahsoka Tano. Rosario Dawson stars as the former Jedi Padawan, who was Anakin Skywalker’s apprentice during the Clone Wars. After what seems like years of waiting, the first trailer for “Ahsoka” finally released on April 7, teasing what’s to come in the action-packed series – including a ton of lightsaber battles, of course, a first look at the live-action version of the series villain, Thrawn, and the summer release date.

Ahsoka was first featured in the 2008 animated film ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’, and fans then followed her journey through the ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ series before the show doesn’t officially end with its seventh season in May 2020. They also saw Ahsoka make a cameo appearance as an adult in the 2014 animated series “Star Wars Rebels.”

Dawson made her live-action debut as Ahsoka in a November 2020 episode of “The Mandalorian” and reprized the role in 2021’s “The Book of Boba Fett.” Her own series, “Ahsoka,” which was announced after this first appearance, will take place at the same time in the Star Wars timeline, approximately five years after the events of “Return of the Jedi”.

“Ahsoka” went into production in 2022, and Dawson appeared at Star Wars Celebration in May – which POPSUGAR was in attendance for – the same year to preview the series. “It was such a pleasure and such an honor to bring this character to life and to feel the energy of everyone who wants to see her come to life,” she told a panel. “As a fan, it was exciting to experience this and see this story continue.”

Here’s everything we know about “Ahsoka” so far, from the trailer and cast to the plot, timeline, and more.
