The Ahsoka series stars Rosario Dawson in the title role and marks Hayden Christensen’s return as Anakin Skywalker. Baylan Skoll is played by the late actor Ray Stevenson, who, unfortunately, passed away in late May before the series’ release.

The Disney Plus Ahsoka series is a live-action television show that is based on the former Jedi Padawan, Ahsoka Tano. Her character was introduced in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series, fighting on the side of the Republic. Ahsoka left the Jedi Order once the war was over.

The news series is set to chronicle her adventures after the fall of the Galactic Republic and after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (1984). The series is produced by Lucasfilm and will be directed by Dave Filoni, who is known for his work on various Star Wars animated projects.

The newly released images feature Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka crossing her arms on what looks like a star ship in front of a chart. Her costume design and makeup are right out of the animated series. Not to mention those contacts must be SO uncomfortable.

Another shows Ahsoka cloaked, standing next to Natasha Liu Bordizzo’s Sabine Wren. Finally, there’s an image of an Inquisitor wielding a double-sided red lightsaber. It screams VILLAIN. Inquisitors track down Jedi to turn or kill them.

Are you tuning in for the new Ahsoka series on Disney Plus? The visuals alone seem promising! Let’s see if Ahsoka can match The Mandalorian’s success.

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
