Fans of the Star Wars universe have been eagerly following Ahsoka Tano's journey in live-action, and it's been quite the ride so far. Ahsoka, portrayed by Rosario Dawson, first joined forces with Din Djarin and the endearing Grogu to free a village from a formidable adversary. She also made a memorable appearance in "The Book of Boba Fett," sharing a momentous encounter with none other than Luke Skywalker himself. But these tantalizing glimpses of Ahsoka were merely the beginning of her live-action adventure. Scroll down to watch
Now, to the delight of fans, Ahsoka is set to have her very own series, with Rosario Dawson reprising her role as the beloved Togruta Jedi. The excitement reached new heights when Ahsoka encountered her former Jedi mentor, Anakin Skywalker, played by Hayden Christensen, in the recent episode of the series.
how many episodes can viewers expect in Ahsoka?
The series will consist of a total of eight episodes. Dave Filoni, one of the co-creators of Ahsoka and a prominent figure in the Star Wars universe, will not only be writing all the episodes but also directing three of them. Joining him in the director's chair are talented individuals like Rick Famuyiwa, Jennifer Getzinger, Steph Green, Geeta Patel, and Peter Ramsey, each bringing their unique vision to the series.
As for the possibility of future seasons, it remains uncertain at this point. However, Rosario Dawson has expressed her enthusiasm for the idea, stating in a recent interview with Empire, "I’m absolutely putting it out into the universe. We’re joking about it, but I’m manifesting it because I feel like I helped Dave [Filoni] manifest this role. So I’m ready. I’m excited. I’m willing. I got my ice-packs ready to go for Season 2 and beyond! I would not be mad at that.”
plot of Ahsoka.
The series promises to be multi-faceted, with Ahsoka Tano facing threats from various quarters. The official plot description on Disney+ sets the stage: "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." Among her adversaries are Baylan Skoll and Shin Hati, and even Anakin Skywalker is set to make an appearance.
However, the most formidable foe in Ahsoka's path is none other than Grand Admiral Thrawn, a character deeply ingrained in Star Wars lore. Ahsoka has been on a quest to locate Thrawn, as hinted in "The Mandalorian" Season 2 when she confronted Magistrate Morgan Elsbeth. Thrawn, a brilliant strategist who commands the remnants of the Empire, first appeared in Timothy Zahn's novels and later made his way into the animated series "Star Wars: Rebels." In Ahsoka, fans can anticipate a thrilling pursuit as she seeks to confront this blue-skinned antagonist.
But not everyone shares Ahsoka's concern about Thrawn. Rosario Dawson provided some insights into Ahsoka's mission, stating, "She sees a threat other people aren't seeing. He's formidable, not somebody to take lightly. She has a sense that there's something, she knows that these foes are not easily dismissed." With the assistance of Mandalorian Sabine Wren, Ahsoka embarks on a mission to track down Thrawn and, hopefully, rescue Ezra Bridger in the process.
As Ahsoka's live-action journey unfolds, Star Wars enthusiasts can look forward to a captivating narrative filled with familiar faces, daunting adversaries, and the indomitable spirit of a beloved character.
