As the Star Wars universe continues to expand its far-reaching horizons, a new era dawns with the release of Ahsoka on Disney+. With Rosario Dawson once again portraying Ahsoka Tano, fans can expect this much-anticipated series to delve deeper into the mythology and adventure that are hallmarks of this treasured narrative.
The series begins just weeks before its premiere, with a fresh teaser that captures fans' imagination. We witness Ahsoka Tano, portrayed by Dawson, teaching Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo) how to fight, instilling the notion that both must ready themselves for the menacing shadow looming large over the galaxy. This unseen enemy seems to harbor ambitions of returning the galaxy to the dark days of the Empire's rule.
Star Wars: Rebels enthusiasts will immediately recognize the connection, as Ahsoka is set to be a direct continuation of the animated series, providing a platform for old characters and intriguing new developments.
In the aftermath of the dramatic battle concluding Rebels, Ezra Bridger (Eman Esfandi in live-action) and Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen) vanished into the vast unknown of hyperspace. Though presumed lost, whispers of Thrawn's possible survival breed new hope and theories concerning Ezra's fate. Ahsoka's belief in Ezra's survival fuels her mission, setting the stage for an exhilarating adventure.
Realizing that she can't tackle the menace of Grand Admiral Thrawn alone, Ahsoka decides to train Sabine in the Force. This new partnership rekindles the hopes of reuniting other fan-favorite characters like Hera Syndulla (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and her droid, Chopper. With Zeb's live-action introduction in The Mandalorian, voiced by Steve Blum, the chance of the entire team assembling in live-action form tantalizes fans everywhere.
