Disney has just unveiled the first trailer for the highly anticipated live-action series, “Star Wars: Ahsoka,” and fans are in for a treat. The visually stunning trailer premiered at the Star Wars Celebration event and left fans in awe.
The series takes place after the fall of the Empire, where former Jedi knight Ahsoka Tano (played by Rosario Dawson) investigates an emerging threat to the vulnerable galaxy. Alongside Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine, they are on the hunt for Grand Admiral Thrawn, hoping to find the lost Jedi Ezra Bridger, who disappeared with Thrawn many years ago. “Star Wars: Ahsoka” continues several plot threads from the animated series “Star Wars Rebels.”
The trailer reveals that Mary Elizabeth Winstead is playing Hera Syndulla, and the droid Chopper is making a return. Grand Admiral Thrawn also makes an appearance, hinting at Timothy Zahn’s iconic “Heir to the Empire” novels.
Hayden Christensen stars as Anakin Skywalker, alongside Ivanna Sakhno, Eman Esfandi as Ezra, and Ray Stevenson. The limited series is written by Dave Filoni, who executive produces along with Jon Favreau and Kathleen Kennedy.
Fans will have to wait until August 2023 for the series to debut exclusively on Disney+. Overall, “Star Wars: Ahsoka” promises to be an incredible addition to the Star Wars universe.
