‘Star Wars: Ahsoka’ – Two thrilling episodes set to launch in August on Disney+

Big Star Wars news on the horizon as Lucasfilm prepare for their second spin-off, “Star Wars: Ahsoka,” following the critically acclaimed show “The Mandalorian.” Fans have been treated to a chic new trailer and poster for the Rosario Dawson headlined series, and TV buffs can mark August 23 in their calendars – the premiere date set by Disney+.

The debut of the hotly-anticipated spin-off will be something special too, featuring not one, but two episodes to kick start the epic saga. The plot will navigate life after the collapse of the Empire, honing in on ormer Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano. To jog your memory, Ahsoka was once Anakin Skywalker’s pupil as shown in the beloved animated series, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.” Now, she’s set to investigate a burgeoning threat to an already fragile galaxy.

“Star Wars: Ahsoka” touts a star-studded cast featuring Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ray Stevenson, Ivanna Sakhno, Diana Lee Inosanto, David Tennant, Lars Mikkelsen, and Eman Esfandi. Dave Filoni, the animation virtuoso behind the original “Star Wars: Rebels,” also directs several episodes. Moreover, serving as executive producers are Jon Favreau, Kathleen Kennedy, Colin Wilson, and Carrie Beck, with Karen Gilchrist as a co-executive producer.

Reports suggest a potential return for Hayden Christensen, reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker in flashback sequences. However, this isn’t confirmed in the recent credits.

“Star Wars: Ahsoka” will be exclusive to Disney+ for its launch on August 23 – an eventful day where audiences can also enjoy a new featurette that goes deeper into Ahsoka’s character.

The sizzle for the upcoming series is palpable, and viewers can get a sneak peek through the freshly released trailer, courtesy of Disney+. Expect a captivating journey into the Star Wars cosmos, led by the commanding Ahsoka.
