Ahsoka Tano has been a central part of the Star Wars canon since her debut in 2008, but it took her over eleven years to turn it into a live-action film, including The Mandalorian. The character's arrival on the scene was so popular, that it was approved for a solo series by Lucasfilm.
Sadly, that particular Disney+ series will be a long way off. However, it hasn't slowed people from being interested in it.
Ahsoka's showrunner Dave Filoni announced that in addition to Rosario Dawson's titular character, other fan favorites would be joining along for the ride; Sabine Wren, Hera Syndulla, and Chopper, to name a few. The story appears to be both a continuation from where Ahsoka was last seen in The Book of Boba Fett's story and from the animated show Star Wars: Rebels.
A new interview from the cast members has revealed the great risks on the line for Ahsoka and his company with the production now underway.
Ahsoka, from Disney+, raises the stakes.
Rosario Dawson and Natasha Liu Bordizzo of Ahsoka actresses talked about what fans can expect from the next Disney+ series in an interview with Empire Magazine.
Dawson, the woman behind Ahsoka Tano herself, commented that fans havent really heard much about her as a character in her two live-action appearances, and that even those who have lived with her for so long have no clue where she is going right now in her journey:
Star Wars is being continued by Dave and Jon [Favreau] in a way that allows it to be standalone, but it also makes you want more. There have been two instances where [Ahsoka] has shown up on a mission, you see how she is interacting with people, but you don't really get her, per se. Even fans who've lived with her for so long don't know where she is heading in this journey.
Bordizzo, who will play Sabine Wren, described her character as being so fearless and brave while at the same time highlighting the huge stakes in the game.
Sabine is so fearless and brave, displaying such grace, but she still has flaws. Shes on her journey, making mistakes. And there is a lot of risk in this galactic conflict.
If you haven't seen Star Wars: Rebels yet, don't fret. Bordizzo has assured that [theyve] got a standalone chapter as it is.
A lot of people have not seen Rebels... It's wonderful for them to have seen it, but there's no need for a standalone chapter as it is.
Ahsoka isn't expected to arrive anytime soon enough.
Sabine's last appearance was at the end of Star Wars: Rebels, when she left Ahsoka for some unknown reason. While she wasn't seen when Rosario Dawsons former Jedi appeared on The Mandalorian, one would have to assume they'd already completed whatever mission they were on.
The only hint given to the viewers about what the two are up to has to do with Ahsoka's massive name change in her live-action debut: Grand Admiral Thrawn. The villain's last appearance was just a few days later, when Ezra Bridger had both driven them to an unknown location.
What are the possibilities for a specific out-of-the-way callout of the high-stakes shows, which might have implications on a galactic level? Whatever it is, it is almost certain that it will be closely linked to whatever both Ezra and Thrawn are up to.
Both of them should be able to enlist the help of Ahsoka in some way, although neither has been officially cast. Those who enjoy Star Wars: Rebels will certainly be pleased with how everything goes down.
The Mandalorian is now available on Disney+, while Ahsoka will be released sometime in 2023.
